The German man who allegedly found Ryan Leslie’s laptop is suing the entertainer for not paying out the reward.
Leslie, who was touring Germany in October (2010) when his MacBook was stolen from a black Mercedes, initially offered $20,000 for the return of the device. He later raised the reward to $1 million, writing on Twitter: “For the record, I had so many amazing music & visual projects on that MacBook that I was working on to share with u this winter.”
Additionally, he released a message of plea via Facebook and Youtube stating: “I lost my computer out here in Germany. I actually had my whole new album on there, which I had been working on in secret, and it got stolen. So right now I got a million-dollar reward for anybody that can return my intellectual property to me.”
Armin Augstein, who allegedly found the laptop while walking his dog and turned it over to police, filed suit against Leslie in Manhattan federal court, claiming the “Diamond Girl” hitmaker ignored his repeated emails about recovering the stolen item.
