Hilary Duff's Home Was Burglarized Over the Weekend
Remember that amazingly cheesy Lifetime original movie about the Bling Ring, a group of teenagers who broke into celebrities' houses and stole their clothes and jewelry? In real life, celebs like Lindsay Lohan and Audrina Patridge, among others, were the victims, and the story of how those robberies happened at the hands of a group of teens became the fodder for not only that Lifetime movie, but also a movie by Sofia Coppola.
Well, listen up Lifetime, because the sequel to The Bling Ring is writing itself right now. Tons of celebs have fallen victim to home burglaries in recent months, and just because of how many there are, we can't help but wonder if at least some of them are connected.
The latest victim is Hilary Duff, whose home was burglarized while she was on vacation with her son, Luca, in Canada, where he ex-husband Mike Comrie is from.
Reports say hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of jewelry was stolen from Duff's Los Angeles home, but that the security alarm installed in the house never went off. Police confirmed to TMZ only that a house in Duff's neighborhood had been burglarized. They wouldn't confirm that it had been hers or give any other information. In fact, it was Duff's rep who confirmed the scary situation to the press.
"This is a scary and upsetting situation for anyone to go through, but Hilary is thankful that her family, her staff, her home and her pets are all safe," Duff's rep told Entertainment Tonight over the weekend. "That said, she has a significant security team in place that will work with the authorities on this incident and handle security measures moving forward."
It's definitely scary that so many celebrities are being targeted by burglars. Hopefully, police will catch up to the Bling Ring 2.0 soon.
