Lohan’s $2 million in borrowed jewelery is now missing after break-in

lindsay lohan 280809

Another interesting twist has unfolded in the Lindsay Lohan robbery debacle. Lindsay posted on her Twitter that she believes the thieves were people she knows in some way, because they only took things that mattered to her (and some strange things like doors) instead of high-end electronics and more commonly stolen items. Then it was hinted in the Chicago Sun-Times that the stolen safe contained sex tapes, based on Lindsay’s Tweet which said “that’s how i know it was not a ROBBERY. electronics weren’t taken… just things that a certain old friend knew meant a lot to me.” Now there’s a new angle – maybe she meant things that literally meant a lot. Turns out, Lohan had $2 million worth of jewelry on loan from XIV Karats, which she now claims were in the stolen safe.

Lindsay Lohan is in hot water yet again after being accused by a jewelry store of ‘losing’ over $2 million worth of jewels.

Lindsay had the jewels on loan from swanky Beverly Hills store, XIV Karats, from over two months ago but when asked to return the pricy baubles the Mean Girls star fessed up that she didn’t have them.

“Lindsay claimed that they had been stolen from her safe,” a source tells RadarOnline.com “They’ve disappeared. XIV are not happy about it.

“The jewels were in Lindsay’s care and they were only on a loaner, they were expected to be returned. If something is not resolved soon there will be legal action taken.”

Lindsay’s rep denies the story, but Lindsay’s dad, Michael Lohan, tells RadarOnline.com, “Lindsay didn’t take anything from them. They lent her jewelry and she has to give it back to them. That’s all I know. She has no intention of keeping any of it. So I guess they’re sorting it out.”

[From Radar]

This brings up a few good points. According to the source, Lohan claims that the jewels were stolen FROM her safe. Not that her safe was stolen and the jewels were in them. Saying they were stolen from the safe means that the jewels were taken from the safe. Which also makes it sound like there was a separate robbery involved. However it’s also possible Radar’s source simply isn’t very careful speaker and wasn’t paying attention to their phrasing. But it’s something to consider.

Secondly, if what the source meant was that the jewels were in Lohan’s recently stolen safe, why didn’t she immediately report to the store that they were stolen? Instead, she didn’t say a word until they called to request that she return them. Caught with her back to the wall, that’s when Lohan confessed.

This leads me to wonder if perhaps the real target was the jewelry. Maybe the robbers knew about it and the other stolen stuff was just a bonus. Maybe Lohan – with a long-track record of just taking the things she wants – decided she wanted to keep the jewelry but not pay for it, so she got someone to break into her home and steal things.

Or, perhaps she lost the jewelry. I mean she’s drunk enough and she’s stupid even when she’s sober. I doubt she gets better at keeping track of her stuff after five shots. Maybe Lohan genuinely lost the jewelry and got someone to break into her home (via an unlocked door no less) and steal the safe so she could say it wasn’t her fault. If she dropped them down a drain, that’s her fault. If someone breaks into her home and takes them, then she’s just a victim. Or so it should appear. Obviously this is all conjecture on my part, but I’m just throwing a few theories out there.

Either way, Lohan is responsible for the jewels. They were in her care. I’m assuming they were still insured by the store even when someone else has them, or they wouldn’t let $2 million of jewelry out of their site. But regardless of what actually happened, Lohan must still be considered ultimately responsible or they’d be filing a claim with their insurer, not threatening legal action against Lohan. This may end up being even more epic than the Elle photo shoot jewels, or the fur coat Lindsay definitely stole (then returned without an explanation or an apology, or the $10,000 worth of clothes she stole from Lauren Hastings, or the idea for her spray tan line she likely stole, or the car she stole. But I’m sure we should take Lindsay at her word and she’s just a victim here.

    Nobody stole the jewelry , she has no money and her lifestyle is not cheap , I think she sold them or gave them to her drug dealer to pay her debt.

    PS: She looks horrible in those picture.

  2. moo says:

    I hope her drug dealer turns her in for trying to pay her debt in stolen jewels.

  3. JohnnieR says:

    Okay, WHO (meaning companies)in their right MINDS would loan Lindsay Lohan US$2 million in jewelry, or ANY merchandise worth a substantial sum? Are these people insane, or merely stupid?

    LOL! Sorry, NO sympathy for XIV from this guy.

  4. Persistent Cat says:

    What QB said.

  5. maddie says:

    “Swanky Beverly Hills store, XIV Karats”

    Sorry but it’s on them, for lending her the jewelery in the first place.

    What business man/woman in their right mind would lend that amount of anything to some one so irresponsible and think they are going to get it back period.

  6. Cinderella says:

    Any company dumb enough to lend Lindsay anything of value deserves to lose it.

    Additionally, the insurer should have a clause in their policy nullifying coverage if the jewels are lent to Lindsay Lohan.

  7. Lee says:

    A couple of days ago I said I figured this was an insurance fraud case on Lindsay’s part. I’m even more convinced now. Not that more convincing was needed. BTW, this girl is famous why?

  8. the original kate says:

    god, she’s hideous.

  9. Firestarter says:

    Anyone with a half of a brain knows that she stole them or had them stolen so she could get the money for either her dealer or money to live off of. So odd how they are getting ready to sue her and them “poof” jewels are gone!

  10. luna says:

    I agree. At this point, after all of the controversy that has been surrounding Lohan for the past couple years, it’s the company’s own fault for being dumb enough to lend her $2 MILLION worth of jewelry.

    I am, however, impressed at how much attention she still manages to bring to herself. It seems to be her only lasting talent.

    If these jewels are in fact worth $2 million, then it might be easier to find the culprits and if Lohan is indeed involved, then this might be what finally puts her away…even though she probably should’ve been put away for that whole kidnapping under the influence business a couple years ago.

    Innocent until proven guilty, but it couldn’t possibly be just a coincidence that Lindsay Lohan is at the center of all these thefts, could it?

  11. Justalark says:

    Look at Lindsay in these photos. The snapshots tell the story. No speculation needed as to what happened to the jewels.

  12. BiggieShortie says:

    TOTALLY on board with the theory that she used them to pay off her dealer in a staged “robbery” (one that SHE hosted).

  13. TaylorB says:

    I am with others here, any company/person who loans her anything valuable or expensive has either been living under a rock or is irretrievably stupid.

  14. yadira says:

    She is always having borrowed jewelery “stolen”. Remember the whole airport debacle?

  15. Persistent Cat says:

    Biggie Shortie, I love you. You think that just cuz a girl likes to dress fancy and stand on the corner next to some whores, that she’s hookin?

  16. Thayer says:

    Hmmm…put the M in Merman in front of Ethel take away the e + l = Meth.

  17. I think everyone but Lindsay knows her career is over but her. All she seems to good for is pop culture conversation.

  18. Amy says:

    She took all the stuff from london not that long ago too. The girls a dirty looking, junkie, thief. Her parents must be so proud but then again being the fame sluts they are they probably really are proud of her…

  19. Lem says:

    Everyone nailed it. You don’t lend a cracked out thievin’ monchichi bling

    the blind says: pay yo’ dealer on time and you won’t be burglarized.

  20. boo says:

    Juvederm, botox, laser treatments, chins, etc, etc don’t come cheap and she brings no money in.

    I kind of doubt this whole story because I doubt anybody would have loaned her 2 mil in jewels.

  21. JohnnieR says:

    You know, and in all seriousness, the truly sad thing about all of this is that Lindsay Lohan was, and most likely still is an amazingly good actress. I mean that. She had such potential for a great future in films. Tis truly sad on many levels.

    Her frackin’ sicko parents need to be friggin’ horsewhipped.

  22. Sani says:

    Makes me wonder if the break in wasn’t stage.

  23. Lita says:

    Does anyone else think that she’s sort of starting to look a bit Samantha Ronson around the face? Especially with the look she is making?

    I have never facilitated anything like 2mil in professional borrowing, but in my much more constrained sphere, they don’t just say “here you are, have fun, return when you’re done!” – there is a special event it is for and the owner has people on hand to give and then receive the goods back afterwards. With anyone (let *alone* Lindsay) this just doesn’t sound right. I mean in the way it played out – obviously not just the standard of “Anything Lindsay = Not Right.”

  24. nikki says:

    she just looks miserable, strung-out, and low class. it actually saddens me but i wouldn’t miss her at all should she overdose and die

  25. She’s a True Hollywood Story in the making. I was so sad when I watched the Parent Trap. She was incredible in that movie.

    I want that sweet little red haired girl back.

  26. Hieronymus Grex says:

    Any jewelry store stupid enough to loan out 2 million dollars in merchandise to this coked-out flake gets what they deserve.

  27. GatsbyGal says:

    I’ll bet she’s got those jewels stashed in her closet and is using the burglary as an excuse.

  28. captain america says:

    naive americans still believe this CRAP?
    there is one thief all right:

    …………………LILO HERSELF!!!!!
    (I ain’t kidding)

  29. boomchakaboom says:

    If you gotta have a dealer, you gotta pay the man. She looks really, really, old and worn. Rode hard and put up wet, as they used to say about overworked horses.

  30. JustMe says:

    Man, girlfirend is one manipulative, lying, cheating, stealing, psycho slut.

    Hate her.

  31. la chica says:

    Lindsay Lohan is a sociopath — just like her father. Next step — jail. Again, just like Dad.

  32. Ally says:

    TMZ played the footage of the thieves. They look like kids, and way too relaxed.

    I buy the help-yourself-to-the-loot as a loan repayment idea.

    Weird thing is, TMZ said one of the kids is the same as broke into Audrina Patridge’s house apparently.

  33. humph! says:

    dang! she looks older than my mother!

  34. hcPrinCeSs says:

    Wow, nice pix, hah! I didnt know that drunk old crack-wh*re on tha corner of my street was Lindsay! 🙂 Well, considering she’s wearing jewelry str8 out tha cereal box/ gum-ball machines these days, its prob. safe 2 say, she smoked those pretty lil’ jewels away.

  35. Cloud says:

    Madof’s wife should of done the same before the FEDS broke into her house !

    In an old Mickey Rooney movie where he was a mechanic he bought a watch and pawned it for 30 bucks to impress some girl.When the cops showed up they told him ” If you buy something on payments and then pawn it when it’s not yours to pawn until you finish paying for it;it’s called ( LARCENY )! ” So the MICK robbed an Amuesment Park to pay off his boss and the same girl who was holding the loot for him bought herself a Mink ! If Lohan owed the Russian’s Her Mink Sable would still be alive when she wrapped it around her neck !

  36. Cloud says:

    PS… If Lohan hadn’t attacked those cops they may of stuck up for her and at least took a report and checked the pawn shops for her !

  37. Shanny says:

    She is getting very Donatella Versace looking, not a compliment.
    Blind item out there is “If you don’t want your house burglarized you need to pay off your dealer”

  38. lucy2 says:

    She’s a mess, a giant horrible mess. I too can’t understand why anyone would lend her anything valuable, and I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if the robbery was staged. Sooner or later the truth is going to come out.

  39. crazydaisy says:

    poor girl is actually looking haggard at, what, 22? this is very sad. and i think megan fox is headed in the same direction. pretty is as pretty does.

  40. BitterBetty says:

    all junkies end up stealing and conning to finance their habits. I always thought she’ll end up in porn, and I still do… but now I think Lindsy is heading to prison first.

  41. repair serv says:

    Perhaps Lindsay is triying to scam the insurance company with the consent of XIV Karats , this will explain why they lent her so expensive jewells.
    Remember Lindsay was friend of the XIV Karats owner’s daughter)
    I hope jail will be good for her.

  42. huriu says:

    This could be one or two things. A publicity stunt to have her name in the news once more, or she sold it all for crack. She looks terrible.

  43. RachelB says:

    Poor Lindsay. I hope she is okay.
