Puerto Rican rapper Daddy Yankee, was robbed of $2.3 million during his tour stop in Spain. The Spanish rapper was staying at the Meliá Valencia Hotel in Valencia, Spain when a man posed as Daddy Yankee and had a hotel staff member open his room’s safe. The thief got away with millions of dollars worth of jewelry as well as cash.
Daddy Yankee’s press office tweeted about the incident in Spanish, which has since been translated, reading: “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.”
Daddy Yankee posted a picture on instagram also in Spanish and has been translated:
“#WhatHappenedHappened it was epic in #Mallorca.”
Daddy Yankee will continue his summer tour.
