Atlanta-Police said two armed robbers approached singer Robert Wilson — known as Bobby Valentino or Bobby V — after he parked a red 2013 Bentley in a lot outside the Hot Beats Recording Studio at 1200 Spring Street Tuesday night. Police say Valentino complied with the men and they drove away in the car. One suspect has been arrested. The car was found a by an off-duty lieutenant who heard a call over a police radio about the incident and found the luxury car abandoned close by the Arts Center Marta Station, according to police spokesman Greg Lyon.

The male suspect’s identity and photo have not been released while police are still looking for the second suspect. Authorities say Wilson and witnesses identified one suspect and the man was taken into custody.

Robert “Bobby” Wilson (born on February 27, 1980) is better know as “Bobby Valentino.”

Bobby Valentino was released in the spring of 2005 through Island Def Jam and Ludacris’s Disturbing tha Peace label and was certified gold by the RIAA selling over 708,000 copies in the United States.

In early 2008 V confirmed that he was no longer signed to either Def Jam or Disturbing The Peace during an interview with DJBooth.net. He stated:
“ The decision to leave [the label] was totally mine. I sat down with Ludacris and Chaka Zulu, and I explained to them that it was time for me to venture out on my own. They had no problem with it; they are cool with it, no beef at all. ”

Bobby V released his fourth studio album, Fly on the Wall on March 22, 2011. In February 2011, Bobby V released his third single, “Rock Wit’cha,” a remake from the Bobby Brown 1989 album Don’t Be Cruel. “Grab Somebody,” which features rapper Twista, will be his fourth single.

In 2012, Bobby V appeared alongside rappers Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne on the song, “Sex in the Lounge,” from Minaj’s second album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.
