Declyn Lauper was arrested Thursday and charged with felony unauthorized use of a vehicle after police allegedly found him sitting in a stolen 2014 Mercedes Benz C350. Cyndi Lauper’s kin has had a brush with the law.
Declyn Lauper is 24 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
The Grammy Award winner’s son Declyn “Dex” Thornton Lauper was arrested in the early hours of Thursday morning in New York City after police allegedly found him sitting in a stolen 2014 Mercedes Benz C350.
According to NYPD, officers noticed the car at around 1:40 a.m. as it was illegally double-parked at the corner of West 140th Street and Broadway, and upon a quick check, they determined the vehicle was stolen. TMZ noted that the car was reported stolen two years ago, and the plates were registered to a different car.
The 24-year-old was taken into custody and charged with felony unauthorized vehicle use. He was reportedly released with a desk appearance ticket for a future court date.
Dex, a musician with 2.3 million Instagram followers and who previously collaborated with G-Eazy, has been active on social media since leaving custody. He even shared what appeared to be a video of the arrest.
Cyndi shares Dex, her only child, with husband David Thornton, whom she married in 1991. The family previously appeared together on her reality series Cyndi Lauper: Still So Unusual, which ran for one season on We TV in 2013.
The “True Colors” artist previously opened up about her fame’s impact on Dex during an interview with The Guardian. “It’s hard for him,” she said in 2008. “People look at him, and he feels the pressure of being my son.”
“Someone came up to me in the street and kept talking and talking. Declyn said afterward, ‘Who are you?’ And I said, ‘I’m a mommy.’ And he said, ‘No, you’re not — you’re Cyndi Lauper!'” Cyndi recounted at the time.
