Stevie Wonder

Victim of Extortion Plot

Over Alleged 'Incest'

5/11/2012 11:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0511_stevie_wonder
A man claiming to be Stevie Wonder's nephew has been charged with 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.

Alpha Lorenzo Walker was arrested May 2 after being trapped in a sting operation.  Law enforcement sources tell us Walker initially demanded $5 million from Stevie but was shut down and eventually lowered his demand to $10,000.

Our sources say undercover cops met Walker, claiming 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.

Our sources say the incest allegation is completely bogus.

Walker has been charged with felony extortion, along with his girlfriend.  He has pled not guilty.  Walker is currently in custody.

Oh that's just awful! I think he should sit in jail and think about how stupid, selfish, heartless and cruel he was to his uncle Stevie and the whole family.

Maybe Mr, Wonder would be nice enough to at least cough up the 60K for bail.

It's about time police do something about extortionists. Now, all's they have to do is the same with those masseuse guys with John Travolta ( if he's innocent)

Even if it were true, wouldn't it be his sister's fault? It's not like he can see who he's really having sex with.

Kudos to Stevie Wonder's reps for contacting the police. Someone needs to make an example of these "DIRT BAGS". People will try "ANYTHING" to avoid an HONEST DAY'S LABOR!!! The fact that an attorney wasn't involved indicates this "FOOL" was WOEFULLY STUPID or was just OUTRIGHT LYING!!!
