My Cherie Amour, A Stevie Wonder Novel By V.C. Andrews™

A man named Alpha Lorenzo Walker and his conspirator Tamara Eileen Diaz were arrested earlier this month for trying to extort Stevie Wonder and were the subject of myriad tired late-night show monologue jokes for fucking up what you'd imagine for obvious offensive-punchline-type reasons would literally be the easiest thing in the world.

But the plot thickened last night when reports surfaced that Walker was blackmailing Wonder with the wackadoo tale that Walker, Wonder's nephew, was the product of a sexual encounter with Wonder and his sister. He originally demanded $5 million from the singer, then lowered it to $10,000, and was nabbed by undercover cops who were posing as Wonder's guys to orchestrate the handover. [Bossip]
