EXTORTION DOESN'T PAY (except in the cases we never hear about)

Nine million dollars - that was the cash an extortionist hoped to get out of Kenneth 'Babyface' Edwards.

Edwards' attorneys gave the man a fake cheque; the end result was the extortionist ended up in prison. Edwards has made his own singles, but has made his wedge producing and writing for Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey; the criminal threatened to claim he was Edwards' illegitimate son - although it's hard to see why he thinks that would be such a threat to the standing of someone who works with crack-addled toilet hiders and screechy plate smashers.
