50 Cent is in the middle of a criminal investigation, after a guy claimed the rapper’s crew pistol whipped him and stole some expensive bling.
According to TMZ, LAX Jewelry Co. owner Robert Marin went to Vegas during Mayweather-Pacquiao fight weekend to sell 50 a watch and chain worth around $250,000.
He says he met 50 at Drai’s nightclub, showed him the jewelry and he wanted the piece, but said they needed to negotiate a price. They stayed at the club until the wee hours Saturday, before he was invited to Floyd Mayweather’s gym by 50 Cent’s crew. But, when he arrived, Marin says two of 50’s guys pistol whipped him, stole the jewelry and fled.
Marin has filed a robbery report and Vegas cops are investigating.
50’s camp says the claims are false.
“On behalf of 50, I can adamantly deny that he or his security had anything to do with these baseless and false allegations,” said 50’s attorney Scott Leemon.
