Posted By on October 29, 2003

Nelly was robbed of more than $1 million dollars in jewelry last night at the Aladdin hotel-casino in Las Vegas.

The rapper was in Vegas for the 2003 Radio Music Awards and performed the hit “Shake Ya Tailfeather,” with P.Diddy and Murphy Lee.

The hotel room Nelly was staying in was burglarized. The theft was reported to police around 9:00 Monday evening and the incident was being investigated.

Michelle Branch, who also stayed at the Aladdin, reported computer equipment stolen.

Over the past months various rappers have had issues with their jewelry. Last month, Big V of the group Nappy Roots lost almost $20,000 worth of jewelry when he was forced to check it in before flying on Southwest Airlines.

Trina was robbed of over $300,000 when a man posing as her manager entered her hotel room in Greensville North Carolina and Lil Kim lost, but recovered a necklace worth $250,000 in June.
