A jewelry maker claims he got jumped by 50 Cent’s crew and robbed of a $250K chain! Get the deets inside and find out about George Zimmerman getting shot (fyi – he’s alive). More inside…
So….the fella above (Robert Marin, owner of LAX Jewelry, posing with Bishop Don Juan) claims member’s of 50 Cent’s crew jumped him during the Mayweather v Pacquiao fight weekend in Vegas, stealing a Rolex and neck chain worth $250,000 – and they pistol whipped him too…allegedly. Mind you….he never implicates 50 Cent….but he does blame people associated with him. We’ll explain…
Robert claims was in Vegas for the fight when he met 50 Cent at Drai’s nightclub in The Cromwell hotel on Friday night, after his concert. He says they partied until Saturday morning before he was invited to see Floyd Mayweather’s private gym ahead of the fight that night. He claims that once inside the gym, the entourage pistol whipped him in the back of the head and stole the watch and chain.
Scott Leemon, 50’s lawyer told TMZ: ‘On behalf of 50, I can adamantly deny that he or his security had anything to do with these baseless and false allegations.’
We can tell you that Robert has filed a robbery report and Vegas cops are investigating. Good luck with that.
THIS JUST IN….
Reports out of Lake Mary, Florida, on Monday, confirm that George Zimmerman, the man acquitted by a Florida jury in the death of Trayvon Martin, was transported to a local hospital for minor injuries and a shooting connected to a road rage incident. This time – he wasn’t the shooter.
He has since been released from the hospital and details about the altercation, with alleged shooter Matthew Apperson, and trickling out. Police spokeswoman Bianca Gillett said George suffered a minor gunshot wound and one witness, Ricardo Berrare, also said his injuries didn’t look serious.
“He walked normally into the ambulance, so he wasn’t being helped or nothing,” Ricardo said.
According to reports in USA Today, Matthew and George have a history of disputes….three of them! Last September, Matthew claimed George threatened to kill him, asking “Do you know who I am?” during a confrontation in their vehicles. Matthew said he decided not to pursue charges in that case.
Kenneth Cornell, an employee at a nearby business, told authorities he was exiting his car after lunch when a man drove up and started yelling “I shot George Zimmerman, call 911. I don’t have a phone.”
Police arrived minutes after he called 911, Kenneth added. For now…police have not verified Cornell’s account to CNN, and have not been able to determine how the altercation started of if charges will be filed.
We will keep you updated but…yes…he is alive and well.
