Orlando Bloom: Robbed Of $500,000!

Orlando Bloom: Robbed Of $500,000!

Orlando Bloom takes a spin on his motorcycle in New York City while his home in the Hollywood Hills was being robbed on Wednesday (July 15).

Thieves entered the home of the 32-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean through a window and, according to TMZ, made off with roughly $500,000 in jewelry — including two very expensive watches.

No suspects have been apprehended yet but cops fingerprinted and photographed the scene.

    Yeah, blame the victim.
    That’s really smart.
    He may own forty, but I doubt t hat there were forty in one place. He has more than one home, remember. These were watches that he wore, not watches that he bought simply for their value. Plus, the house had a security system. What else was he supposed to do?
    Blaming him is like blaming a person who owns a nice car for having it stolen. “Why were they driving a nice car? How stupid?”
    It makes that much sense.

    Cars are not kept in safe deposit boxes.

    Many people, celebrity or not, do collect watches and all sorts of other small items of jewelry, and many other collectible items just for the sake of collecting them.

    As many others have said, it does not cost that much to have a safety deposit box and keep things in it you may one day wish to give to your children someday.

    I feel very bad for him myself. How many of those collectible watches do you think he was hoping to pass on to his children and grandchildren someday.

    Who cares about cars? Those are being constantly stolen, and no one blames the victim in that case.

    But if there is a way to keep your valuables safe where no one else can get to them, until you retire, and then you can have a room where you can display all the stuff you collected over the years to share with those you love, why not use that system instead.

    But as has been said…he WORE those watches. They weren’t just part of a ‘collection’, they were part of his everyday life.
    Do you keep jewelry that you wear every day in a safe deposit box? No. I bet that you don’t. And your jewelry may not be worth 500,000, but I bet it is as large a percentage of your net worth, as half a mil is to Orlando’s 30 or so million.

    @sweetness: We didn’t say the paps were the robbers. Please learn how to read. We said that the paps take the pictures, report on their whereabouts and other more duplicitous individuals use this information to rob celebs.
    .
    Sweetness, please try to keep up. Your illiteracy is an embarrassment.

    It’s said that Orlando spent a lot of money in security systems, but the burglars managed to get through them. IMO a deposit box would not have been an obstacle for them, but a banner with “Please steal here” written on it.

    Well, he certainly puts things in perspective, doesn’t he.
    He’s such a good guy.
    Looks like Miranda was with him in the SUV (and Sidi). He didn’t waste any time getting home, did he? Poor thing.
    My guess is that Sebastian is the relative that notified the police. Unless Orlando has other relatives in LA that we don’t know about.

    I was on a bus tour in LA last year and we passed his house. I can see why his house would be a target. It’s secluded and surronded by many trees. You can barely see the house.

    @33 Says:

    Thanks for the heads up – didn’t realize that was Miranda driving until you said she was there, with Sidi, of course.

    Glad no one was there especially the dogs. My mother’s home was broken into and only the dog was there – small dog, must have hid under some furniture. Anyway, that was everyone’s main concern – the dog. The rest of that stuff is just stuff – even if it is expensive jewelry.

    Kudos to Orlando for keeping it all in perspective.

    @ 35 Says:

    not that it matters really. even though Miranda was in the suv with him, she was not the one driving. If you look at this pic, you can see the driver is an older gentleman.

    glad everyone is okay, and that he has friends and family around to be there for him.

    @35 Says:

    Miranda wasn’t driving, she was with him and Sidi in the back seat.
    The thing to remember is that as horible as this is, it could have been much worse. What if they were home and the intruder had a weapon? What if Miranda was there by herself? What if the thief had poisoned Sidi? It almost makes me sick just thinking about what COULD have happened.
    I’m sure that he feels violated. But I’m also sure that the knows how lucky he is.
    He has a very strong sense of self. He will be just fine.

    @ 38 Says:

    well said. thank you for saying it.

    thoughts and prayers are with him and his loved ones.

    everyone expresses emotional trauma differently. some it doesn’t hit them until much later after the incident has occured.

    I would be terrified to breathe let alone stay in my house ever again.

    They are now reporting that artwork was also stolen.
    Vintage watches and art. Sounds like they knew what they wanted.
    Poor guy.
    In the Radar Online video, you can see a security camera trained on the driveway. Unless they just installed it, they should have a pretty good shot of the thief (thieves) coming and going. I hope that they catch the rotten b***ards.
    Orlando is too nice a guy for this to happen. I wouldn’t care as much if it happened to someone like Russell Crowe. But Orlando is a sweetheart.

    Too trusting? Says:

    I agree. Sometimes he’s almost ‘too nice’ for his own good. He seems a little too trusting sometimes and willing to give everyone the benefit of the doubt. In this hard-nosed cynical old world we live in, guys like him are more easily taken advantage of – even by so-called ‘friends.’.

    Hope they find the ******** that did this .
    Orlando is a strong smart and optimist person I doubt he will let this get into him and I am sure he feels lucky that nothing worse happened as someone said what if Miranda was there all by herself what if those horrible persons were armed .
    Still a pity this had to happen to him
