Snoop Dogg caused a lot of chat after he posted - and promptly deleted - a New Zealand cell phone number on his Instagram acount. 

So we decided to call the number. And much to our surprise, someone answered! 

Eighteen-year-old Kiwi Mickey Serong answered and explained that she has no idea why Snoop posted her number! She doesn't have a connection to him!

"It was very weird, I was with my friend watching TV and all of a sudden my phone started blowing up with calls from people I didn't know," she told Newshub.

Being understandably suspicious, she says she didn't answer the calls, and was left confused until she opened Instagram and saw her number on the rap icon's account.

"I started freaking out, I was like, 'what's going on here?'" she says.

Serong says her number was only on Snoop Dogg's account for around three hours, but in that time it amassed more than 50,000 likes and 30,000 comments.
