R&B singer/producer Ryan Leslie has been accused of breaking his promise to hand over a $1 million reward for the safe return of a stolen laptop after it was found and handed into police by a man in Germany. The star was on tour in the European country when a thief swiped the computer from his car last October.
Leslie was so desperate to get the Apple MacBook full of new, unreleased music back, he increased his initial reward offer of $20,000 to $1 million in a video posted on YouTube.com. The laptop was retrieved by a man known as as Bernd P., who claims he found it in a bag while walking through a forest. He handed in the lost property to local authorities, who reportedly reunited Leslie with his gadget.
Bernd P. attempted to reach out to Leslie via email and Twitter.com to alert him to the good news and identify himself to claim the reward cash - but his efforts have yet to be acknowledged by the star, according to YoRaps.com. Leslie had yet to respond to the allegations as WENN went to press.
