26th September 2022

The surge of celebrity robberies

There has been a surge in celebrity robberies. Recently, Sheridan Smith, who starred in Gavin and Stacy and Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, was robbed while filming Rosie Mollie Gives Up on Nothing. A string of incidents led to the Movie Takers stealing thousands of pounds worth of jewellery from the star’s trailer.

Professional criminals often target the rich and famous. In order to determine how many valuable possessions were stolen from celebrities, Associated Security, a leading provider of home safes throughout the nation, investigated some of the most scandalous celebrity robberies of all time.

Molly-Mae Hague

TV personality Molly-Mae has recently been robbed in a scandalous robbery. A burglar stole £800,000 worth of belongings from the apartment she shared with her partner, Tommy Fury, in 2021. Clothing, shoes, and jewellery were among the belongings they lost.

Recently, sources have revealed that Molly has gone to therapy to cope with the incident, as well as hiring security and 24/7 confidential support. In spite of Molly’s personal camera being stolen this year, things seem to be looking up for the celebrity couple as they consider building their own house.

Paris Hilton

There will be no doubt that the ‘Bling Ring’ will go down as one of history’s most scandalous celebrity heists. Several celebrities, including Lindsey Lohan, Orlando Bloom, and Paris Hilton, were broken into by teenagers between 2008 and 2009. Their escapades led to the theft of over £2.4 million worth of clothes, jewellery, and cash.

Despite being unharmed, Paris Hilton was repeatedly targeted. Five separate gangs of teenagers broke into her home, stealing jewellery worth $1,619,094 ($2 billion). This experience was even compared to visiting an ATM.

In the end, the teenagers faced a number of sentences for their robberies, ranging from 60 days of community service to four years in prison and a fine of £485,010 ($600,000).

Kim Kardashian

Entrepreneur and reality TV star Kim Kardashian has also been a victim of a burglary. During Paris Fashion Week 2016, Kim was robbed of £7.4 million ($10,000) worth of jewellery, including her engagement ring worth £3,424,950,766 ($4 billion). To date, most of these precious items have not been found.

Since the incident, she has been suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Additionally, the global pandemic and agoraphobia contributed to the problem.

Twelve suspects are currently incarcerated and awaiting trial. The health conditions of a few, including Yunice Abbas, have led to their release on bail. I Kidnapped Kim Kardashian (2022), a memoir detailing his experiences during the high-profile robbery, was released in recent months.

Tamara Ecclestone

One of the most scandalous celebrity robberies of all time happened to Tamara Ecclestone, daughter of former Formula 1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone. A cartier bangle worth £80,000 was among 400 pieces of jewellery stolen from her London mansion in 2021.

Two other celebrity raids have been linked to the burglars (Jugoslav Jovanovic, Alessandro Maltese, and Alessandro Donati), totalling £26 million in stolen goods. Consequently, all three were convicted and are now in prison.

The robbery occurred during the time Tamara, Jay, and their daughter were on a trip to Lapland that morning. However, the ordeal has no doubt impacted their well-being, and their daughter asks if they will return.

So there you have it – five of history’s most scandalous celebrity robberies. You should take the right steps to secure your home, even if you’re rich and famous.
