Producer Ryan Leslie Sued For $1 Million Over Failed Laptop Reward Payment
 

 

A laptop that was stolen and eventually covered for Ryan Leslie may end up costing the producer millions in dollars.

The whole ordeal began in Germany in October of last year, when the Leslie’s laptop was stolen from his Mercedes, while he was traveling in Cologne.

The frantic producer took to Twitter and originally offered a $25,000 dollar reward for the laptop, which contained his latest productions.

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.

Yep, the dude that picked up the Laptop knew it wasn't his, he shouldn't have picked it up, but Ryan should've given the dude a little something, cuz he didn't have to give it back.

I would def want the million for returning it but im smart enough to realize that people will not pay for something thats already theres. Meaning why would u give him back the laptop without getting any type of money. The person should have had the money wired to his bank account or delivered to him personally. Ryan pulled a smart move and it worked. unless theres a contract signed on both parties no judge is gonna reward the person plus how u look like trying to sue someone over having possession of stolen property.

Anthony Ryan Leslie is an American record producer, multi-instrumentalist, rapper, entrepreneur, and singer; he has a net worth of $35 million. Ryan Leslie has built his net worth as founder of NextSelection Lifestyle Group, which is a media, company. He has also produced singles for a number of artists from R&B/Hip-Hop to Pop to Gospel. In addition to his producing in 2006 to record a new debut album. Leslie was born in Harlem, New York, and he attended Harvard University.
He can definitely afford it. It was a bad move on his part to even offer $1 million dollars to begin with, I would have kept it 100 grand at most.

Still, you can't be deceptive and pretend you'll give something back. I have no idea if the guy who "found" the laptop actually discovered it or if he stole it. If he did steal it, then no, he doesn't deserve the reward. But if he did find it and recover it, then Leslie should be a man of his word.

No bi*chassness

He should be a man of his word, despite how unrealistic the reward was. Why the hell would be reward someone $1m for his laptop? Because he thinks his stash in his laptop will make him more than $1m? That's crazy for a reward.

That said, I doubt the guy suing for $1m will get that much. R. Les has good lawyers, I'm sure they'll say something like $1m was always an unrealistic reward and the guy shouldn't have expected so much for it. He'd probably be remunerated like $50K max.

Ryan Leslie's offer was a binding contract. Especially since it was made to the general public. Homeboy is gonna have to come out of pocket

The man responsible for the return is going by the name Bernd. P (name was changed for press, 52 years old), says he was going for a walk in the woods of Stommelerbusch, on November 27th, when he stumbled upon the bag. After handing the bag over to police Bernd P. began trying to contact Ryan Leslie about the reward. He has now taken the story to the press since he has had no response from his emails to Ryan, or his tour manager. However, he did wish for his name to be changed, to remain anonymous in the case he does receive a reward for Ryan’s stolen property.
Glad this isn't my problem though.
