But Hadfield says the musician, whose legal name is Curtis James Jackson III, has been ruled out in the investigation of a May 2 complaint alleging a robbery at or near boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s gym in Las Vegas.

Celebrity website TMZ reported Tuesday that LAX Jewelry owner Robert Marin reported he was robbed of a diamond watch and chain valued at some $250,000.

Marin hasn't responded to messages from The Associated Press.

The alleged attack occurred hours before the Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight in Las Vegas.
