Following the leak of a video of him allegedly skipping out on a transgender prostitute, singer Bobby V has come forward saying he was extorted.

A rep for the singer told TMZ that he vehemently denies that the person he hooked up with this past week was a prostitute.

He also claims he’s now being extorted after the person filming him realized who he was.

“Misrepresentation and deception were maliciously used to target Valentino; during the encounter, Valentino was victimized and threatened by acts of extortion which continued after his departure was captured on video,” said the rep.

Bobby’s camp says he’s reported the extortion attempt to law enforcement.

As for the claim thee woman was transgender, the singer’s rep says Bobby had no idea.
