14 Celebrities Busted For Shop lifting (And What They Stole!)


From where we are sitting celebrities’ lives seem to be full of glitz and glamour. With unlimited funds in their bank accounts, luxury items, and free fashion products it seems unbelievable that celebrities would be caught shop lifting.

However, for some celebrities, money, and fame have not stopped the compulsion to shoplift and the thrill that they feel when trying to get away with it.

Some celebrities like the UCLA basketball players who were caught in China as a result, might simply be doing it for the high. Others like Stranger Things actress Winona Rider who was caught red-handed in 2001 may actually suffer from a psychiatric disorder, kleptomania or some other mental disorder.

Here are 15 celebrities who have been for shop lifting. You won’t believe the items they take.

1. Megan Fox

Megan Fox has come a long way since she was a teenager in Tennessee. The mom-of-three and Transformers alum admitted to take makeup from Walmart when she was much younger.

2. Amanda Bynes

In 2014, actress Amanda Bynes suffered a psychotic break which led to her blasting people on social media and having various public incidents of distress. At the time, the What I Like About You actress was charge of taking a $200 hat from Barney’s in New York City.

3. Kim Richards

We had no idea that this The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star even shopped in Target, but in 2015, Kim Richards was charge of taking $600 in merchandise from the budget shopping store in Van Nuys, California. Richards was jailed for the incident and released the next day after she posted $5,000 bail.

4. Winona Ryder

The Stranger Things actress has perhaps the most infamous incident of shop lifting by a celeb. In 2001, she was in coustdy for taking $5,500 worth of clothes and accessories at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills. She didn’t work in Hollywood again until 2006, but she also credits the event with saving her life. In 2013, she told Interview Magazine,

5. Lindsay Lohan

Mean Girls actress Lindsay Lohan has had her fair share of legal troubles. In 2011 when she was already on probation for a DUI incident, Lohan got in trouble again when she walked out of a jewelry store wearing a $2,500 necklace.

6. Kristin Cavallari

Though Kristin Cavallari certainly wasn’t the most dramatic star on The Hills, she was in coustdy in 2006 for taking from Tawny Kitaen’s Orange County store.

7. Stephanie Pratt

It looks like Kristin Cavallari isn’t the only star from The Hills who loves a five-finger discount. In 2006, Stephanie Pratt was caught trying to lift $1,300 worth of merchandise at a Neiman Marcus in Honolulu.

8. Farrah Fawcett

The late Farrah Fawcett was best known for her stunning blonde hair and her role as one of the original Charlie’s Angels. However, in the 1970s she was also in coustdy twice for takiing clothes from boutiques.

9. Shelley Morrison

Though you probably know Shelley Morrison from her role as Rosario on Will & Grace (the original series), you probably didn’t know that the retired actress was coustdy and charged with theft for taking costume jewelry from a Robinsons-May department store in 2003.

10. Kesha

Kesha take out of necessity. Before she was a major pop star, the singer was homeless and broke, so she took food to survive.

11. Caroline Giuliani

Even if your father is a Trump supporter, who delights in blitting the poor, and is tough on guilt, that didn’t stop Rudy Giuliani’s daughter Caroline Giuliani from taking tons of merchandise from Sephora. Perhaps the former mayor should have focused his attention at home.

12. Beth Ditto

In 2010, singer Beth Ditto admitted to frequently taking from Goodwill. She also said she had recently s-tole a dress from Marshalls.

13. Emma

The WWE diva Emma pled guilty to taking an iPad case worth $21.14, from a Connecticut Walmart. Upon hearing about the th-eft, WWE removed her only to rehire her two hours later.

14. UCLA Basketball players

Recently, three members of the UCLA basketball team, LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley, and Jalen Hill were in coustdy in China for taking from three stores — one of the items was sunglasses. The young men are now home and have apologized for the incident. However, now President Trump is at with Ball’s father, Lavar Ball. Trump seems miffed that Ball isn’t praising him for helping to get his son released from coustdy.

Cdog inth’houseCelebrities earn a whole lot of money from their films, music, etc. They dont have a reason to st-eal.

Tom H.Ryder’s case is a good example of the law concerning shop lifting. She didn’t actually leave the store before being apprehended because they had already seen her cut off tags and security devices. The case against her was very strong and she had no good defense or excuse.
