Stevie Wonder’s nephew has been arrested for allegedly attempting to extort the singer by threatening to go to the tabloids and say he’s the product of an incestuous relationship between Stevie and Stevie’s sister, unless the singer coughed up big bucks. According to TMZ,Alpha Lorenzo Walker was arrested May 2 after being trapped in a sting operation. Law enforcement sources tell the site, Walker initially demanded $5 million from Stevie but was shut down and eventually lowered his demand to $10,000.
Undercover cops met with Walker, who claimed to be Stevie’s reps who had the cash, but demanded that he first sign a document which included a statement that his accusations were false. Walker signed, and he was promptly arrested.
