Lohan, Hilton, Bloom All Testified Secretly In 'Bling Ring' Case
The likes of Lindsay Lohan, Orlando Bloom, Paris Hilton, Audrina Patridge and Rachel Bilson testified before a county grand jury about how it felt to be victims of the alleged "bling ring" of burglars who authorities said targeted their homes and those of other celebs. The previously unrevealed testimony was reported Tuesday in an Associated Press exclusive.
Lohan was in court before the jury about two weeks before she was sentenced to jail for violating terms of DUI-related probation. The stars' testimony lead to the grand jury indictment of five suspects in the case.
"That night I went back to the house, I just felt, to be honest, so violated and uncomfortable that I literally packed as much stuff as I could," Lohan told the jurors, according to AP, "because it wasn't about the things that were taken, it was just the fact that someone came into the only private space that I have in my life at this point."
The ring allegedly struck in 2008 and 2009. Reality show star Alexis Neiers, who was charged as part of the ring, took a plea deal and served 30 days behind bars. Four others are awaiting trial.
