A lawyer for rapper 50 Cent is denying a Los Angeles man's allegation that he was beaten at gunpoint by the musician's bodyguards and robbed of jewelry during fight night weekend in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas police Officer Jesse Roybal said Tuesday (May 12) that detectives are investigating a man's report that he was robbed early May 2 at an address at or near boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s gym.

Roybal says the man had minor injuries when he flagged down an officer about 5 a.m. on Spring Mountain Road.

Attorney Scott Leemon acknowledged a report by the celebrity website TMZ about LAX Jewelry Co. owner Robert Marin's allegation that he was pistol-whipped and robbed.

Leemon calls the allegations baseless and false.

Marin didn't immediately respond to a message from The Associated Press.
