Will.i.am Robbed in Los Angeles
Black Eyed Peas-leader, stadium performer and social media hustler Will.i.am fell into some bad luck in Los Angeles on Monday night. Apparently, the multimedia artist left his expensive Bentley unattended with about $10,000 worth of assorted possessions and goods. TMZ reports that burglars hit up the car and stole everything in sight, including jewelry and several “personal items.”
The robbery took place in the Hollywood Hills — an area with an extreme celebrity presence and tons of expensive cars. According to the official police report, Will.i.am actually personally discovered the situation before calling the local brass to report the missing items and associated costs. Police have already obtained a few of the items and remain on the trail to finding the rest of the loot.
Will.i.am’s loss should be a reminder and lesson to all. If you drive a Bentley, don’t leave $10,000 worth of items in open view that could easily be stolen.
This week also marks the one-year anniversary of the infamous beef between Will.i.am and blogger Perez Hilton. If you’ve forgotten, Hilton apparently felt slighted by some comments that the Black Eyed Peas member made at the Much Music Awards in Canada, got punched by Will’s manager and then made a total freak-out video that created a good deal of vicious back-and-forth between the two that resulted in a lawsuit.
