Hard times are hitting Hollywood as multiple high-profile homes are robbed. Paris Hilton was robbed last week of nearly $2 million worth of jewelry and personal items. She told Life & Style magazine she is, “…devastated. I cannot believe someone broke into my home. They took items that had such sentimental value that no one will ever be able to replace.” The Post reports that the luggage of a high profile publicist was stolen out of her home as she ate dinner on a different floor. Model and budding designer Erin Wasson was another star present in her home as thieves made off with over ten thousand dollars of jewelry and designer items by Alexander McQueen, Dior, and Givenchy. The three women’s doors were unlocked. If you spot something pink and sparkly on eBay over the holidays, notify Paris’ people immediately, it is most likely priceless.
