Lindsay Lohan, Orlando Bloom and Rachel Bilson are among the celebrities targeted by the so-called “Bling Ring,” a group of young burglars who tore through Hollywood in 2008 and 2009. The celeb victims testified about the case before a grand jury earlier this summer, and their secret testimony has just been released to the press.
“That night I went back to the house, I just felt, to be honest, so violated and uncomfortable that I literally packed as much stuff as I could,” Lohan said of the night she was robbed. “It wasn’t about the things that were taken, it was just the fact that someone came into the only private space that I have in my life at this point.”
Lohan mentioned finding black fingerprints on the white walls of her rented house when she returned after the break-in.
“I don’t ever plan on going back to that house,” Lohan said. “It was like, such an invasion of privacy, and it’s just eerie.”
Bloom also discussed the psychological toll of the burglary and how it impacted his personal life.
“It’s just awful because you are suddenly second-guessing everything,” Bloom said. “You are like, ‘Who has been in my house?’ You know, the value of things kind of fades away. It’s really about who is it, who am I starting to question?”
