Ryan Leslie’s Laptop Recovered, But Payment Is Pending
Ryan Leslie made headlines in October after his laptop went missing following a performance in Germany, with the singer-songwriter later ramping up his reward of $20,000 to $1 million for its safe return. In a bizarre twist of fate, Leslie’s laptop was discovered on November 27 in Stommlerbusch near Cologne, Germany, when a man named Bernd P. happened upon the missing bag while walking through the forest.
After finding the missing goods, the discoverer, whose real name is unknown, turned the bag containing the laptop over to local police. But R Les is yet to make good on his reward. Once the bag was recovered, Bernd P. never received his $1 million payout, making the situation public in the media by showing journalists a copy of the singer’s passport and police report and claiming that Leslie won’t return his e-mails.
Leslie is yet to speak on recovering his laptop, even after he went so far as to film a YouTube video and accompanying song to help him get it back. Allegedly, the singer had completed his third album ‘Les is More’ and was keeping it on his laptop, as well as other music and visual projects.
