Two arrested in Stevie Wonder extortion case

  • Stevie Wonder’s nephew has been arrested and charged with extortion against the singer.

    Alpha Lorenzo Walker, 38, was arrested on May 2, along with Tamara Eileen Diaz.

    The pair had threatened to release information they claimed would damage the reputation of the Grammy Award winning singer unless he met their demands.

    Celebrity website TMZ.com claims the pair demanded $5 million from Wonder, threatening to reveal to the media tales of incest.

    Walker and Diaz have pleaded not guilty to the charges and remain in jail until a preliminary hearing due to be held next week.
