Miami Rapper’s FAKE Jewelry Mailed BACK To Him After Home Burglary
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (WSVN) — Rapper Prince Malik has returned to South Florida to claim his jewelry and has a message of the burglar who mailed it to the WSVN studios.
Fresh off a trip to Hawaii, Malik walked into the Miami Beach Police headquarters Monday to verify the jewelry that was returned to the WSVN studio was in fact stolen from his condo. “I didn’t believe it, and then I realized that Channel 7 is, like everybody watches it here in Florida,” he said. “It’s a fact. I’m so happy because more people watch it and more awareness come out.”
There was a burglary at the rapper’s Miami Beach condo in early May. He said a safe was stolen with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of jewelry inside. Surveillance video released last week captures a man wearing a ball cap who, Malik believes, is the person who made off with the pricey loot.
Last week, WSVN got a special delivery that contained pieces of Malik’s jewelry, he said. The sealed box contained one necklace, one bracelet and three rings, along with a handwritten note that read, “Fake jewelry from a fake rapper. Give this back to Prince Malik. He still owes me money.”
When asked about the note, Malik was speechless. “I don’t know what to say. I don’t know what to say to that. I don’t know. Sony’s fake? I’m with Sony. I don’t know what to say.”
When asked whether the jewelry is real, the rapper replied, “Of course it’s real.”
Miami Beach Police said they have not appraised the jewelry sent to 7News to see if it is fake. Monday afternoon, Malik was at Miami Beach Police headquarters and walked out with his jewelry and said that the jewelry sent to 7News is his. “It was a very bad idea,” he said.
Late Monday night, Malik sent a video of a jeweler testing the jewelry that was mailed to the WSVN station. He said the green light at the end of the jewelry device indicated that the diamond is real. “The reason I think we got it back was because they couldn’t sell it. It’s so unique. I designed it.”
Malik said this investigation is far from over, indicating the costliest items taken from his home are still missing. “The most expensive stuff is still — they have it,” he said. “My earring, my real ring, my grandma’s $300,000 [ring] that I filed in the police report.”
Malik added he has a message for the perpetrators who remain at large. “Very soon I’m going to get justice, watch,” he said.
