Today's Blind Items - The Thief

This is not some Lindsay Lohan stealing a fur coat or a pair of earrings thing while you are not looking. I do though, often wonder how many items she ultimately stole in her klepto career. It surely wasn't the number that was reported or discussed. My guess it was probably a multiple of ten of that, because you can't tell me the only times she did it were the times she was busted. There must have been successes too. It isn't like she has stopped, but this is not about her. We are talking next level here. We are talking the size and scope of a Kardashian Paris robbery type situation and it is all masterminded by someone who is a celebrity themselves. Oh, most of you know who he is because you are gossip aficionados. To anyone other than you though, no one would have a clue. Well, I take that back. The portion of the world where he supposedly makes his living would know who he is and they are probably not the biggest gossip fans. Other than that, no one.

He comes from a celebrity family in the sense that he and his family frequently deal, work and interact with celebrities. Their level of interaction is at the highest level of celebrity. Primarily they interact with European royalty and celebrity. Everyone thinks the family is worth a great deal of money. They deal with a lot of money, but that does not translate to riches of their own. Are they comfortable? Yes. Do they have the same wealth of the celebrities with whom they interact? No. It is even less so for our thief who relies on others to pick up dinner checks and who has not felt the trickle down effects from his family.

It was several years ago that our thief, who is well versed on what is worth money and easily flipped for money that he began to take careful note of homes and yachts of celebrity. He is not someone who goes in to a place in the dead of night and breaks locks. He is a thief who will make several visits to a home or yacht for parties or as a guest for a week and sees where cameras are and how efficient everyone is. He looks to see if it could be blamed on someone else, perhaps a crew member. He looks to see if the owners care about it or even know about the items he wishes to purloin. For each of these visits, he always has a date. He prides himself on well known European models or actresses who provide another level of distraction. They don't know what he is doing as he takes an item here or an item there. He never strikes the same place twice and he has never had help, until now. Our thief, who has taken millions of dollars worth of items over the years, now has someone to help him gain access to places even his other companions could not. This particular companion is very well known and is in high demand as an A lister. She also knows a great deal of secrets about many of the elite being robbed because they have had illicit affairs with her they would not want known. It is another reason, they would remain tight lipped in case they did catch on to the identity of the thief. The thing is, she is impatient and wants more and more. The thrill of a job gets her adrenaline rushing. Our thief takes his time and is content with three or four thefts a year. Our A lister would prefer three or four per month. That is how you get caught.

I meant James Middleton/puppy’s brother

Tricia13 said...

Actually Vito Schmabel/Amber Heard

Tricia13 said...

*Vito Schnabel/Heard

Brayson87 said...

Unless he's using bows and arrows and has a real British accent who GAF?

Do Tell said...

If you know someone is a habitual thief, and at this point isn't it well past grand larceny, shouldn't you be calling Interpol?

MDAnderson said...

Vito definitely fits better. He owns art galleries and may not make a lot of money. I just hate that it would then make Heard the A lister

Tricia13 said...

MD same here RE: Amber.
But VS and family definitely play in those circles. And “Puppy’s” brother lol and the interchangeable looking hubby et al definitely have real money I think

Nutty_Flavor said...

Interesting the bit about him scoping out the cameras on previous visits. Wouldn't people of this income level also have less visible cameras?

Also, the kind of assets he is taking couldn't be mass-produced products - it wouldn't be valuable enough. It has to be rare or one-of-a-kind stuff, art or jewellery, maybe watches.

So who is the fence? And who is the ultimate buyer?

It wouldn't really do to steal an object d'art from Rich Person A and then have the victim see it on display at Rich Person B's mansion.

Ukhomegirl said...

Juicy blind!!! James Middleton and don’t know who for the actress?

Lauren said...

James Middleton is dating a French financial analyst her dad gave an interview in the DM.

SDaly said...

With a name like Vito, he had no other options.

(Clue is "frequently deal" as in art dealer.)

cc423 said...

Middleton's GF is a big ole nobody. So that seems off.

Jennerationb said...

Vito is a great guess!! The only question would be what kind of people can Heard provide access to that he or ex Heidi Klum wouldn’t have been able to associate with before

Humor Me said...

As per the DM (yes, it is my guilty pleasure) - James Middleton has been seeing a French financial analyst who works in London for the past six months.

Makes me think of all those 60s movies - Cary Grant, et al.

Roxanne said...

Vito was arrested for drug dealing in 2017
It's him. His dating history is as described. Even tho he's fug

Lurky McLurkster said...

@Nutty - Probably should be a mix of both. You want visible cameras as a deterrent and hidden ones in case the visible ones are disabled

gauloise said...

ex=yachter Megan Markle for the A lister companion?

gauloise said...

James Murdoch, RUpert's son, who has had a failed business career, so not really getting the family money.

milli said...

James Murdoch is suppose be the next chair of Tesla and worth 500 million

Mahogany1 said...

Wasn't this the plot from Animal Kingdom

plot said...

@Nutty

The objects disappear to the highest bidder in China or the Middle East, never to be seen again on Mediterranean yachts. It happens with a lot of "art" these days - forgeries and real art sold for millions, as a money laundering thing or a tax evasion - to Chinese and Saudi billionaires who toss it or throw it in a bank somewhere (if it's real.)

Vito, being an poor art dealer with a more famous father who started out as an art commodity, knows how this works.

LydiaJosepg said...

It's never who you think it is.
That's how they get away with it.
I found out something on an old acquaintance this month. I was simply gobsmacked.
Never thought he could be that low.
People will surprise you.

Sourcandy13100 said...

First thing that I thought of as well.

emeraldcity said...

"our thief, who is well versed on what is worth money and easily flipped for money"
.....Vito for sure, an art dealer knows the selling price of everything, knows the good stuff when he sees it and knows where and who to sell to, plenty of shady buyers in the art world.

hothotheat said...

Amber knows rich folk from hanging out with Musk. This is definitely VvS/AH.

Lisa said...

Thanks for the props hommie!

Enty, GREAT BLIND!

Also, I have no idea.

But Vito sounds good.

Just another day on this stage we call ... life said...

Vito dated Demi Moore at one point!!!

Miss Meow said...

I'm gonna guess it's the younger Hilton brother, is his name Conrad?

Gator said...

Middleton was the first one who popped into my head, and he's been covered alot in the DM the past couple of days. If it's Schnabel & Heard, I hope they do get caught, so she can stop playing the victim.

Depeche Model said...

Vito is an excellent guess. He's not as wealthy as the people he hangs out with in the art world, he knows the value of an object d'art, and he has the right connections to sell it without having to go public.

Small paintings, valuable prints that might disappear from a guest bedroom or bathroom, expensive knick knacks on display for decoration, and for people like that I wouldn't put it past the to honeytrap somebody and swipe their watch while they're in the shower or bathroom. Then disappear and profits can be shared between the model/hooker and Vito.

This might not be exactly like Lindsay Lohan's level of a cheap fur coat, but we're not talking about stealing a Picasso either here. Uberwealthy people do sometimes have outrageously expensive little decorations standing around worth hundreds of thousands, but in my experience, those get put away whenever there's a sizeable party. If he goes to 2 parties a week, or 1 each weekend , it would make sense that his opportunities 'only' amount to 3-4 worthwhile pieces a year. To steal more, he'd have to really go for it hard.

Hortensia said...

that guy who got busted by the LA police for posing as a real estate broker.

Jennacheryl said...

For some reason I thought Leo. Could not tell you why.

Aquagirl said...

Enty, can you please stop referring to Amber Heard as A-lust? That was a typo but I’m gonna leave it.

C G said...

Agreed!

HushHush said...

Would Tom Parker-Bowles work for this?

Temi said...

I was thinking Donald Trump Jr.
The blind uses the word 'deal' - the hotels/realestate/golf courses would lead the fam to interact with 'friends' with money (more money), they are perceived to be more wealthier than they are, and Jr. has a new GF who is thirstier than his soon to be ex-wife.

Marianne Duer said...

What about that guy who is dating Princess Beatrice?
