Troy Ave Said He Refuses To Cave In To A Thief Over Risque Vid
Troy Ave said a brazen thief is trying to extort $20,000 from him using stolen, raw footage from a raunchy music video shoot that turned into a sexual encounter.
The rapper – who is also battling attempted murder charges – told BOSSIP he is being blackmailed over erotic footage he shot with a model while filming his new music video last month.
The footage fell into the wrong hands this week when the unknown person broke into Troy’s videographer’s car and stole his computer, he said. The machine had the raw film from the sexually charged shoot, which the rapper admitted turned into an intimate encounter.
“After he was done with the edit, he was supposed to delete the raunchy parts that you clearly couldn’t see,” Troy Ave told BOSSIP exclusively.
Yesterday, using the Instagram handle @manhegottapay, the would be extorter demanded $20,000 from Troy in exchange for returning the computer and not going public with the footage. The thief began threatening the “All About The Money” rapper, claiming he needed to be paid immediately or he’d release the film.
And the crook refused Troy’s initial request to meet face to face.
“MEEET UP??” (sic) the alleged extorter wrote in Troy’s DMs. “YEAA RIGHT. YOU WON’T FOOL ME FAM. I SAW WHAT YOU DID AT THAT CLUB. PAYPAL, MONEYGRAM or BITCOIN ONLY.”
