Over the last few years, celebrities have been the target of some scary home invasions, particularly in the Los Angeles area. The stars think they are safe and sound with security measures in place, but the latest crime wave is proving that even sophisticated high-tech equipment isn’t keeping the burglars out.
One possible reason for the recent trend of celebrities being targeted is the fact that many flaunt their homes and luxurious goods on social media. “It seems that the suspects are targeting individuals [with] expensive jewelry, expensive cars and things of that nature,” LAPD Sgt. Hector Olivera told The Los Angeles Times. Kim Kardashian knows that all too well after she was the victim of a jewelry heist at her Paris hotel in 2016 — it was terrifying. “I just knew that was the moment. They’re just totally going to shoot me in the head,” she recalled on a 2017 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. “I just prayed that Kourtney’s going to have a normal life after she sees my dead body on the bed.”
With Selling Sunset‘s Christine Quinn being the latest victim, it’s a reality check that public figures might want to reassess their security and find ways to outwit the criminals, who are clearly profiling and staking out their prey. It’s a scary thing to think about, but nobody wants to experience what these stars have gone through. Find out who in Hollywood has suffered through horrific home invasions.
