Grammy winner singer Cyndi Lauper’s son Declyn Wallace Thornton Lauper has found himself in some legal trouble. He has been charged with a felony count of unauthorized vehicle use.
The only child of Cyndi and her actor husband David Thornton, Declyn has a future court date to attend.
Here’s more to know about him.
Why Was He Arrested?
On June 14, 2022, Declyn was arrested in New York around 1:40 A.M. According to TMZ; he was taken into custody after NYPD found him parking a Mercedez-Benz illegally at West 140th Street and Broadway.
When the police investigated the car’s VIN number, they found it was reported as stolen two years ago. It was last seen in 2016 in New York City.
The reports suggested that the license plate of the Mercedez belonged to a different car. Declyn was soon taken into custody with a count of felony unauthorized vehicle use.
According to the updates from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, the 24-years-old artist was released with a desk appearance ticket for a future court date.
Soon after his release, on June 16, Declyn posted an Instagram story mentioning TMZ. He wrote, ‘I just ate at Cipriani left at $2k tip Somebody tell TMZ to get the f*** off my d***.’
While his family has yet to comment on this matter, the Fast Lane artist voiced support for his mother via his Instagram story.
Declyn wrote, ‘Say what you want about me but keep my mothers name out your mouth. I couldn’t have asked god for a better mother.’
