Around this time last year, Ryan Leslie lost one of the most prized possessions of a musician…his laptop. Frantic, he put out a $20,000 reward offer to anyone that could bring his baby back. He then upped the ante to a whopping $1 million when he was getting no bites. Someone finally found it, and now a year later…R. Les still hasn’t ponied up the cash and the returner is not too happy! Details below.
According to a lawsuit filed yesterday (October 24) in New York, Armin Augstein claims that Ryan Leslie reneged on his agreement to pay the reward, which was eventually increased to $1 million.
Augsteinâ€™s lawyer told The New York Daily News that the lawsuit was the only viable means to make the producer pay.
â€œItâ€™s unfortunate that my client has to go to such lengths to recover the reward,â€ Michael Fischman, Augsteinâ€™s U.S.-based lawyer told The New York Daily News.
Representatives for Ryan Leslie were not available for comment as of press time.
