Right before The Bling Ring hit cinemas, we gave you the lowdown on which celebs had been target by the group of teen burglars when they were in the midst of their crime spree back in 2008 and 2009. But are you also curious about who decided to stay in their houses after the robberies and who high-tailed it out of there? We sure are!
Luckily, we’ve got some answers to satisfy our curiosity: The Wall Street Journal recently caught up with a number of the stars victimized by the Bling Ring and found out where they are now. Here’s the dish:
Here’s a surprise: LiLo didn’t actually own her house at the time she was burglarized by the Bling Ring. In 2008, she showed up at model/actress Jenna Gering’s door all set to pay the asking price of roughly $10,000 a month for Jenna and her husband’s 2,700-square-foot house in LA’s Hollywood Hills neighborhood. “We were desperate to rent the house, which was expensive,” Jenna told the Wall Street Journal, “so we thought, ‘What’s the worst that could happen?’” Even more surprising? The worst that could happen wasn’t Lindsay herself. Nine months after Linds rented the house, it made the news when it was targeted by the Bling Ring.
LiLo moved out immediately, but at least she paid out her lease. Said Jenna, “Her security deposit was three months of rent, which was the remainder on her lease, so we basically shook hands and walked away.” Most surprising of all: Lindsay left the house in excellent condition, with the only damage being holes left in the hedges out front—which we can’t really blame her for, as they were caused by the paparazzi constantly sticking their cameras through the hedges to try to snap pictures of the starlet. Jenna and her family live in the house currently.
