A man claiming to be Stevie Wonder‘s nephew has been charged with attempted extortion by threatening to go to the tabloids and say he’s the product of an incestuous relationship between Stevie and Stevie’s sister, unless Stevie paid big bucks.
Alpha Lorenzo Walker was arrested May 2 in a sting operation. Law enforcement sources say Walker initially demanded $5 million from Stevie but eventually lowered his demand to $10,000.
It all went down when undercover cops met with Walker, claiming to be Stevie’s rep who had the cash, but demanded that he first sign a document that stated that his accusations were untrue. Walker signed the document, and he was then arrested.
The incest allegations are completely bogus. Walker and his girlfriend were charged with felony extortion. He has pled not guilty. Walker is currently being held on $60,000 bail.
