The ‘Queen and Slim’ actress has reportedly fallen victim to jewelry theft at the annual French International Film Festival after walking the red carpet in style.
AceShowbiz -Actress Jodie Turner-Smith was a victim of jewellery theft at the Cannes Film Festival in France on Friday (09Jul21).
Representatives for the star, who is at the festival promoting her new film “After Yang“, and the Cannes Police Department have yet to confirm the news but, on Sunday, the actress tweeted, “didn’t think i would be spending 2.5 hours in the police station on my final day in cannes, but here we are…(sic).”
The actress was photographed on the red carpet last week (08Jul21) wearing a Gucci gold necklace, bracelet and earrings from the Hortus Deliciarum High Jewellery Collection. The stolen items, which are not confirmed to be the Gucci pieces, are reportedly worth thousands of Euros.
Local publication Nice-Matin reported the burglary, but did not name the victim. An investigation is underway.
It’s not the first major jewel heist at the prestigious festival – in 2013, $1 million (£719,000) worth of Chopard jewels, which were to be worn on the red carpet by various stars, were stolen from the Novotel hotel.
Cannes was not the only major event happening right now in France – celebrities also flocked to the country for Paris Fashion Week.
