50 Cent Accused of Stealing $250K Worth of Jewels

50 Cent is currently being investigated by Las Vegas authorities due to allegations of theft. Robert Marin, owner of LAX Jewelry Co., says 50’s men stole two pieces of jewelry from him that are worth $250K.

According to TMZ, Marin met with 50 at Drai’s nightclub in Vegas during the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight to show him a Rolex watch and a chain. 50 agreed to buy the two pieces, but the men hadn’t yet settled on a price. Later, 50’s entourage invited the jeweler to check out Mayweather’s training gym. After arriving, Marin claims he was pistol-whipped and robbed by 50’s crew.

Forbes recently named 50 Cent as part of their “Forbes Five,” a list of the wealthiest hip-hop artists, which also includes Dr. Dre, P. Diddy and Jay Z. 50’s estimated net worth is currently at $155 million. After selling his stake in VitaminWater for $100 million in 2007, the rapper has been involved with other ventures such as Effen vodka, SMS Audio and SK Energy. I’m throwing a side-eye at this accusation. Two pieces of jewelry at just $250K sounds like mere pennies in 50 Cent’s world.
