Nepo-baby rapper son of Cyndi Lauper charged after Harlem shooting

The rapper son of music legend Cyndi Lauper has been charged with criminal possession of a weapon, after being arrested Wednesday.

Declyn Lauper, 26, was nabbed minutes after a shooting on W. 112th St. near Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd. that was reported around 7:15 p.m. Wednesday, police said.

Lauper possessed a fanny pack that contained the Glock, which had seven bullets in its magazine, said a complaint filed in Manhattan Criminal Court.

The complaint says Lauper possessed the weapon “with intent to use it unlawfully against another.”

Also arrested in the gunfire was Omar Lewin, 24, of Washington Heights. Information about Lewin’s case was not immediately available.

He was arrested Wednesday night after police responded to a shooting in Harlem.

The 24-year-old victim was shot in the leg on West 112th Street at around 7:15 p.m.

Lauper was charged with two counts of criminal possession of a firearm, and Manhattan prosecutors sought bail of $50,000 cash or $150,000 bond.

But a criminal court judge set lower bail, at $20,000 cash and $100,000 bond.

Lauper’s family posted cash bail, and he walked out of court with his lawyer.

Lauper’s arrest was not the first for the troubled son of the ’80s pop star, who won a Tony Award for writing the music in the Broadway show “Kinky Boots.”

Lauper is the only son of the Grammy winning artist and actor David Thornton.

In 2022, he admitted to disorderly conduct after he was arrested in a stolen Mercedes. He entered a no jail plea agreement.

Every sentence is rife with information, she is distressed( of course) her rapper son Dex( she has a son who is a rapper) who knew? For shooting and drug possession( really?). Seriously, just kept saying what? Why can’t the children of celebs (looking at you Chet Hanks) just act normal. Money and freedom is lost on them.

I JUST saw her Cosentyx commercial on TV.

That's... not great news. He seems to be the exact opposite of his parents. He's not obligated to be a carbon copy of either of them, it's just that he's so unlike them that it's kind of surprising.

I feel sorry for his parents. Money or no money, that's gotta be rough on them.

I had an uncle that used to live in the Bay Area of San Francisco. He was in a car accident and became a quadriplegic. Some of his friends treated him to a Cyndi Lauper concert when she was in the area. Because of his wheel chair, my uncle had to use a back entrance to access the venue she was performing. As he was traveling down a large hallway Cyndi appeared walking towards his direction with a large group of her people. She immediately noticed my uncle, ran over to him, sat on his lap and began singing to him. A picture was taken of her sitting in his lap. It was a genuine surprise and one of my uncles greatest memories and a very touching moment. She has real class. How she ended up with this little punk for a son, I’ll never know.
