In May 2009, the Bling Ring burglarized Rachel Bilson’s house five times. The thieves stole most of her shoes, clothing, designer purses and jewellery, some handed down from her grandmother.
In Feb. 2017, Alanis Morissette’s mansion was hit by burglars, with a safe stolen, containing jewels and damage done to home interiors. The loss was about $2 million, as estimated by the police.
Ms. Hilton was targeted not just once but multiple times by teenage thieves known as the “Bling Ring.” Her house was burglarized at least five times, but the heiress didn’t even realize this and only report these robberies after almost $2 million worth of jewellery, clothing, cash and shoes was stolen.
In October 2016, Kim Kardashian was staying at a Paris hotel when 5 gun-trotting thieves broke into their rooms, tied her up and threw her into the bathroom. They took two cell phones, a $4.5 million-worth ring and a jewellery case valued at approximately $5.6 million.
Hilary Duff’s Beverly Hills home was broken into in July 2017 while she vacationed in Canada and hundreds of thousands of dollars in jewellery were lost. The actress was scared and upset but thankful her family and staff weren’t hurt.

Three armed robbers entered rapper A$AP Rocky’s home on May, 2017, and stole $1.5 million in jewellery and other goods. The thieves entered by threatening a female relative, who opened the front door. She was uninjured.
During the holidays in 2016, actress Queen Latifah’s personal security guard took her luxurious 2015 Mercedes S63 to a gas station and while filling up the tank, someone jumped inside the car and took off.
