“Despacito” Rapper Daddy Yankee now joins the long list of celebrities who have been hit by a home robbery this year.
According to Page Six, he was reportedly robbed of $2.3-million worth of jewels after a man posed as him and had hotel staff in Spain open the room’s safe.
The rapper was out of his hotel Tuesday night when the robbery went down. However, when he came back and discovered that his jewelry had been taken along with thousands of dollars in cash, it was very painful for the rapper to take in. Yankee whose real name is Ramón Luis Ayala Rodríguez immediately contacted authorities to report the robbery.
The robbery was confirmed by the artist’s press office in a tweet Thursday.
“The press office @daddy_yankee confirms that the artist has been a victim of robbery while he was outside his hotel in Valencia, Spain. A law firm has already been hired and no further declarations will be given so as not to hinder the investigation in any way,” the translated tweet read.
Daddy Yankee is currently on the road in Europe and will continue his tour, despite the theft.
