Lawyer for 50 Cent denies rapper was involved in robbery


A lawyer for rapper 50 Cent (real name Curtis James Jackson III) announced Tuesday that neither the musician nor his security team robbed a Los Angeles man of valuables at gunpoint in Las Vegas earlier this month. Officer Jesse Roybal, a department spokesman, stated that police are still investigating a report that a jewelry company owner was robbed on May 2 at or near boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s gym. According to celebrity gossip website TMZ, LAX Jewelry Co. owner Robert Marin said he first met the rapper at a night spot and was later invited to Mayweather’s gym. He was then pistol-whipped and robbed of a diamond watch and chain valued at $250,000. The alleged attack happened the morning before Mayweather defeated Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Marin had non-life-threatening injuries when he caught the attention of an officer and filed a complaint about 5:00 a.m. No charges were immediately filed, and the police report has not been made public. Attorney Scott Leemon, who is representing 50 Cent, acknowledged TMZ’s report. Marin did not immediately respond to requests for a statement.
