*Bad news for musician and songwriter Ryan Leslie. His financial battles have continued to intensify over time and resulted in him having to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy last year.
His money struggles include a $1.180 million judgement he owes to Armin Augstein; the German guy who found Leslie’s lost laptop and returned it in 2010 for a promised reward. Unfortunately, Leslie went back on the promise and hasn’t paid; even after Augstein won his lawsuit. Leslie then faced serious action for reneging on the reward.
Even his car, a fully loaded mint condition Cadillac Escalade, was seized by marshals due to his inability to make good on the reward for the recovery of his lost laptop.
The car will be auctioned and the proceeds will be awarded to Augstein.
