Jeweler Says 50 Cent's Posse Robbed Him Blind

A man is claiming that Fif's crew stole a $250k watch.

There were a lot of people who lost gobs of cash during the Mayweather-Pacquiao bout last weekend, but we're guessing there are very few who lost money the way this guy claims he did. That is, via one pistol whip theft session courtesy of 50 Cent's security team.

Per TMZ, a jeweler named Robert Marin who owns LAX Jewelry Co. claims he hit up Las Vegas last weekend to court 50 Cent's business during the big fight, but he ended up "brutalized" by Curtis Jackson's crew and robbed of all the bling he intended to sell there.

Marin says he wanted to sell a watch and chain with a quarter-million-dollar value, and after a night spent at Drai's nightclub, negotiating and then visiting cool spots like Floyd Mayweather's gym with the 50 Cent crew, he thought the deal would be done.

But then he reportedly got pistol-whipped and robbed of his jewelry by part of 50's entourage before the two suspects fled with all his treasures in tow, he said.

For his part, though, 50's team is denying absolutely any involvement with the incident, and his attorney Scott Leemon issued a statement that, "On behalf of 50, I can adamantly deny that he or his security had anything to do with these baseless and false allegations."

FWIW, the rapper's net worth was recently estimated by Forbes to come in right around $140 million (or about 560 of those watch-chain combos Mr. Marin had).
