News: German Man Sues Ryan Leslie For Reneging On 1 Million Dollar Reward


Ryan Leslie may soon have to fork over 1 million dollars to a German man who is suing him for not making good on his promise of a 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 decided to raise 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 on 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, has now filed suit against Leslie in Manhattan federal court, claiming the hitmaker ignored his repeated emails about recovering the stolen item.

Ryan Leslie has yet to officially comment on the lawsuit. Of course, MSDTV will keep you posted. Stay Tuned.
