10 Filthy Rich Stars Who Were Caught Stealing

By KK Angus, 2 January 2018


Hollywood’s penchant for shoplifting and petty theft is not unknown. It doesn’t matter how rich a celeb is, taking something that’s not theirs is always a thrill to the stars, apparently. From youth icons Lindsay Lohan to Britney Spears, to prolific actors like Winona Ryder, they have all been charged with stealing. Now, you may ask why they need to shoplift or steal, when they earn millions. But nobody knows…

1Lindsay Lohan


Mean Girls star and your definite early 2000s crush Lindsay Lohan has had a troubled life. From addiction issues to abusive relationships to a shaky career, Lindsay has had it tough. But things went ugly in 2011 when she was accused of stealing a gold necklace worth $2,500 from a swanky California boutique.

Lindsay had the most hysterical response to these charges. The actor said that she was simply borrowing the jewellery, and would have returned it. Though many designer stores have a lending policy in lieu of deposits, the store Lindsay stole from had no such records claiming that the actor had ever requested for borrowing the item.

In 2009, during one of Lindsay’s magazine photoshoots, £250,000 worth of Christian Dior jewellery went missing. Lohan was obviously the prime suspect after the magazine staff overheard Lindsay repeatedly asking if she could keep the Dior jewellery used in the shoot.

2Britney Spears


In 2007, one of the biggest pop stars of the century had a famously crazy year. Britney Spears had a number of public meltdowns, had hilarious gaffes on-stage, went through tumultuous personal problems, shaved off her head and had to go to multiple rehabs.

It was during that year that Britney was seen stealing a lighter from a gas station. It is possible that the pop sensation was just doing it for fun. “I stole something. Oh, I’m bad,” Britney was heard saying into the camera after she took the lighter. It was also reported that Britney stole a wig from a shop after the staff wouldn’t let her try some underwear.

3Megan Fox


One of the hottest Hollywood actors also had a pretty rough childhood. Not only did her parents split up when she was very young, but she was also bullied a great deal in middle school. As a teenager, maybe as a way to vent out her angst, Megan started to grow a penchant for shoplifting and petty stealing.

As a teen, Megan would steal candies and small goods from gas stations and small convenience shops. Although she did not face charges and escaped the law several times, she was once caught stealing a tube of lipgloss from Walmart. Upon being held, the Transformers star came clean about her crime and burst into tears. She is reportedly still banned from Walmart.
