No Exceptions: 11 Robbed Celebrities
Lawbreakers have no exceptions. Moreover, rich, successful, and famous people are often their main target. Sometimes it seems that with that kind of money they can provide the highest level of security, yet many of them have been robbed in recent years. How does this happen? Celebs run into intruders in their studios, homes, and other properties.
Sometimes the perpetrators manage to get away with taking valuable and exclusive items of people from the show business world. Then they make a lot of money. But whatever the case, there are 11 celebrities whose robberies are big news.
In 2016, Kim came to Paris to relax and enjoy the beautiful view from her room in the hotel of the same name. The vacation was overshadowed by Yunice Abbas, who then published a book titled “I Sequestered Kim Kardashian” in which she described her plan to rob the celebrity. The thief detailed how she snuck into the room, stole expensive jewellery and a phone, and how surprised she was when Tracy Chapman called her phone. Yunice Abbas did not do this alone. Other burglars held Kim Kardashian at gunpoint and ended up stealing over $10,000,000 worth of items.
2008 was not the best year of her life. In three months (October through December) she was a victim of thieves five times. It is impossible to imagine how they managed to do it, as Paris Hilton had the opportunity to hire an army of bodyguards, especially after the first episode with the intruders. What super plan did the thieves use? One time they used a key under the mat and walked right in the door. Among the missing items, Paris found her exclusive dresses and jewellery. The damage was $2,000,000!
Conan O’Brien and his crew recently moved the Conan show to the Coronet Theater located in West Hollywood. They had to do this to allow the theater to generate revenue, which had dropped precipitously during the pandemic. It was robbed. Several thieves broke in and stole laptops and other valuables.
Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox
This story happened back in 2009 when Brian Austin Green was shooting a new movie in New York. His house was attacked by a gang of burglars who managed to get some of Megan Fox’s stuff as well as a Sig Sauer 380 semi-automatic handgun. Fortunately, the actress was not home and was not injured. The amount of damage was not fabulous as in some other cases.
Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes
The two were spending the weekend together at home when thieves broke in through the window. Once they realized someone was home, they quickly fled the scene. However, their getaway was accomplished in a Mercedes SUV, which was the only stolen item that night.
The super singer was the victim of a grand mugging in which she lost over $1,000,000. The thieves somehow found their way into Beyonce’s storage unit which was leased to her production company Parkwood Entertainment. The storage unit was in LA. The thieves made off exclusive clothing, bags, and other accessories worth over a million dollars.
In 2009, Lindsay Lohan became a victim of the Bling Ring group. Over the course of a year, the criminals robbed several California houses and Lindsay Lohan was one of the victims on that list. The bandits didn’t go away empty-handed. They had plenty of time to find the actress’s clothes and jewellery worth $130,000.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi
It happened at Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s Montecito estate. This 8,1888 square foot structure attracts a lot of thieves, but its owners thought about the level of security after the incident. It is not known if Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi were home, but they lost a lot of gold jewellery and diamonds.
