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.

Augstein’s lawyer told The New York Daily News that the lawsuit was the only viable means to make the producer pay.

“It’s unfortunate that my client has to go to such lengths to recover the reward,” Michael Fischman, Augstein’s U.S.-based lawyer told The New York Daily News.

Representatives for Ryan Leslie were not available for comment as of press time.
