Daddy Yankee known outside the Americas for his seminal hit “Gasolina” and for his feature on “Despacito,” has been robbed of $2.3 million worth of jewelry. The Reggaeton left his jewelry box in a hotel room safe, when an impostor successfully persuaded the front desk to give him access to Yankee’s belongings. The impersonator is believed to have phoned the reception desk to forewarn staff of his presence, as is the custom of “expedient service” reserved for high profile clients.
The Public Relations firm Daddy Yankee is signed to, confirmed the robbery via Twitter. The post essentially says a Spanish law firm has been hired to undertake the case, and that no further statements will be issued in order to facilitate the police investigation. Daddy Yankee was staying in the north end of Valencia while on tour. While the legal team press local police to round up evidence, the Reggaeton star will continue the European leg of his tour, as he did last night in Martigues, France.
A second room booked under his name was always hit by the thief, containing an undisclosed amount of cash. The theft was discovered on Tuesday by members of Daddy Yankee’s entourage, several hours after the incident took place. A forensic team was quickly marshalled to the scene.
Don’t get gassed.
