A lawsuit has been filed against Famous Dex for allegedly faking a story to cover up stealing a luxury watch on loan from a friend.
Dex borrowed the watch and reportedly agreed to promote it on social media.
The watch owner said that he and Dex met in person to take some pictures with the watch but disappeared with it. When Dex finally contacted him, he said the watch was stolen, along with thousands of dollars in cash.
According to TMZ, he said he was followed by unknown assailants. When he reached his car, he said that the men pulled guns on him and demanded the watch and the thousands of dollars he had in his possession.
