Last year marked the return of Bobby V as  dropped his last album, Dusk Till Dawn.   The lead off single for the LP was "Mirror " feat. Lil Wayne and album featured other guest appearances from Future, K. Michelle, Gucci Mane and more.  R&B singer had taken a small hiatus from music prior to his 2012 release and even had some legal issues in regard to his stage name.

If you remember, he used the name Bobby Valentino when he first came out.  However, he was forced to change his stage name from Valentino to “V,” after being sued by an English singer who apparently had use of the name first.  At any rate, Bobby V. is estimated to worth about $6 million and was recently car jacked at gunpoint.  Get all the details below with Tha Wire.
