Ryan Leslie Ordered To Pay An Extra $180K Interest On $1 Million Laptop Reward

AllHipHop Staff

(AllHipHop News) Producer Ryan Leslie has been ordered to pay another $180,000 in interest on a $1 million judgment, over his stolen laptop.

Ryan Leslie's laptop was stolen, while he was on tour outside of Cologne, Germany in 2010.

He took to YouTube.com to offer a $1 million reward for the laptop, which was found and returned by an auto shop owner named Armin Augstein.

But Leslie refused to pay Augstein the reward, because several important productions were missing from the recovered laptop.

In November, a Manhattan jury sided with Augstein and awarded the $1 million judgement against Ryan Leslie.

The $180,000 penalty covers the two years that Ryan Leslie reneged on the $1 million reward for the laptop.

According to the New York Post, Ryan Leslie never responded to a motion that was filed by Augstein last month, in an attempt to collect the interest.

Lawyers Ryan Leslie would not state why he did not challenge the latest motion for the $180,000 in interest, but his lawyer noted that he will appeal the latest judgment.

The producer has yet to pay any of the reward money, or the interest, as of press time.

Ryan Leslie's latest album is titled Les is More.
