Rapper Sued For Not Delivering Promised $1 Million Reward

28 Oct

Harlem-based rapper/producer Ryan Leslie, pictured below, is being sued after his laptop got stolen while he was on tour in Germany. Leslie offered a $1 million reward for anyone who returns the computer, and about a month later, someone does. So instead of paying them the cool mil he promised in a very public way, he pretended like that whole reward thing never happened.  Yep…

He posted a video pleading for its return, initially offering a $20,000 reward, which he later bumped up to $1 million. About a month later, Armin Augstein found the laptop while he was walking his dog through a park in Stommelerbusch, Germany, and turned it in to authorities, who got the Macbook back to Leslie.

According to Gothamist, Augstein says he’s tried in vain to get Leslie to make good on his reward promise, all to no avail, so he’s suing Leslie for $1 million plus interest. “It’s unfortunate that my client has to go to such lengths to recover the reward,” said Augstein’s lawyer. Leslie has yet to comment on the situation.
