It takes a real work of art to try and pull one over Stevie Wonder!
Seriously… what was Alpha Lorenzo Walker thinking??
Claiming to be the incest child of Mr. Wonder and his sister, Alpha threatened to tell the press unless the singer could hand over $5 million.
After Stevie laughed at the claims, Alpha figured he could settle for $10,000.
But there was already an undercover operation ready to catch the fool. When Alpha was told to meet Stevie's "reps," he agreed to sign a statement confirming his allegations were false.
Needin' that money fast, he signed away… and was cuffed immediately. Surprise! Those "reps" were cops… whomp whomp!
Alpha and his girlfriend were arrested and charged with felony extortion. What an idiot!

It's very pretty, but we're not sure we'd want either version sung to us before bedtime…lest we get nightmares!!

Teresa Hunt has been arrested and faces federal extortion charges after being caught in an FBI sting.
Teresa wants Discovery Communications to pay her $10,000 or cancel the Duggar show. In exchange, she would NOT release "shocking" photos of Amy Duggar — a first cousin of the family.
Discovery contacted the FBI who sent an agent to act as a Discovery rep. When he phoned Teresa, she apparently said she already had offers of $3,000 for the pics. She emailed them over and demanded $10,000 to shut her up.
Well… needless to say, they got her!
