*Singer Ryan Leslie just upped the ante with the reward for his laptop to $1 million.
He was on a tour in Cologne, Germany when the prized possession that contains his private files, valuable personal information, and unreleased music was stolen.
Previously, Leslie announced a $20,000 reward and posted a YouTube video asking fan, friends, and anyone who would listen to help him find his computer.
“In the interest of retrieving the invaluable intellectual property contained on his laptop & hard drive, Leslie has increased the reward offer from $20,000 USD to $1,000,000 USD,” according to a new video from the R&B artist.
The singer promised to continue his European tour that will end Nov. 15.
“I keep my laptop, drives and other personal affairs in a black Incase backpack. In the 20mins around my entrance to club Loom last night,” Leslie wrote on his Twitter page after losing the laptop. “I left the backpack in the rear driver’s side seat of a secured Mercedes S350. The security drivers left the car unattended to escort me. Someone outside saw this opportunity to snag the backpack.
“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,” he continued.
OK, we can’t help but wonder just what the hell is on the files in that laptop that’s worth one million dollars. But even more important, is dude really rolling like that? Or is this just some kind of publicity gimmick?
Well, if he does and you wanna get rich … if you have any information about his laptop, email Mr. Leslie at [email protected].
