Once upon at time (many months ago), Ryan Leslie’s laptop was stolen from back of his Mercedes at a concert tour stop in Cologne, Germany. Now, Armin Augstein, a 52-year-old German who found the stolen laptop is seeking the $1 million reward promised by Ryan Leslie in a U.S. District Court lawsuit.
Back in January 2011, Armin had recovered Ryan Leslie’s Macbook in a park in Stommlerbusch, near Cologne–he had then asked for his $1 million reward as promised by Ryan Leslie. However, the singer-producer-rapper apparently backed out from his promise which resulted in the lawsuit
The jury decided against him yesterday.
Ryan Leslie contention for not paying the promised amount; several unreleased multitrack songs stored on the hard drive were inaccessible when he received the computer.
