Hit making producer/keyboardist Scott Storch was reportedly the victim of a robbery outside of his hotel in New York City.
According to TMZ, Storch was robbed outside of the New York Palace Hotel in Manhattan. Two men approached the parked SUV on Madison Avenue where Storch was waiting, and allegedly told the producer, “Give us all your jewelry and cash or you’re dead.”
Storch reportedly gave the assailants $5,000 in a briefcase and several items of jewelry, valued at nearly $100,000. They also demanded the keys to the vehicle so the victims couldn’t drive away. The driver complied. Storch claims that he tried to chase after the guys to see where they were headed, but they got away.
Storch, who’s worked with everyone from Pink to Dr. Dre, was in town for the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards. After the incident, he immediately went to the nearest police station and filed a police report.
“Nothing can stop music, thanks to all the fans and support,” Storch tweeted later.
