Rapper 50 Cent and his entourage have been accused of stealing a Rolex and neck chain worth $250,000 from a jeweler during the Mayweather v Pacquiao fight weekend in Vegas.
Robert Marin, owner of LAX Jewelry which specializes in diamond-studded bling worn by rappers, says he was in Vegas in order to sell the watch and chain to 50 Cent – real name Curtis Jackson.
Mr Marin says he partied with Jackson before being invited to look at Floyd Mayweather’s gym, where he says he was pistol-whipped by two of Jackson’s security and the items were taken.
According to TMZ, Mr Marin claims to have met with Jackson at Drai’s nightclub in The Cromwell hotel on Friday night, after the rapper had performed there.
The jeweler says he partied with Jackson and his people into the early hours of Saturday morning, before he was invited to see Floyd Mayweather’s private gym ahead of the fight that night.
