Paris Hilton’s home was burgled several times between 2008 and 2009 by the Bling Ring, a group of fashion-obsessed thieves. It wasn’t until nearly $2 million in jewels, clothing, cash, and other goods were stolen from Hilton that she reported being burgled. Netflix is known for its engaging documentaries, and it has recently produced one inspired by Paris Hilton.
Page Six reports, that Paris Hilton will not be watching “The Real Bling Ring: Hollywood Heist” on Netflix. “She has no interest in reliving this after all these years,” a source exclusively told the outlet. The upcoming docuseries is about a group of criminals that stole millions of dollars in designer goods from the famous hotel heiress.
According to the outlet’s source, Hilton was asked to participate in the Netflix documentary but had to “respectfully decline” owing to her hectic work schedule and the imminent launch of her new company 11:11 media. In 2013, the DJ allowed a crew to film inside her home in preparation for a film about the crimes, “The Bling Ring,” and accepted a cameo role in the film. However, the outlet was also told that it was because “Sofia Coppola was directing.”
Nearly a decade after the film’s release and more than a decade after Hilton’s home was burglarized, the “Stars Are Blind” singer wants to put that chapter of her life behind her. However, Netflix released the teaser for their three-part docuseries on Tuesday, and in it, a former “Bling Ring” member reminisces on how Hilton’s house was their “personal ATM.”
“Really? another unlocked door? Well, we can do it again,” Nicholas Prugo, who served a year in prison for his actions at the time, stated in the series of the culprits’ mindset at the time. In her book “The Bling Ring: How a Gang of Fame-Obsessed Teens Ripped Off Hollywood and Shocked the World,” writer Nancy Jo Sales stated in 2013 that the group deliberately targeted Hilton because she would leave her door unlocked.
One robbery resulted in the theft of $2 million in jewels, including “heirlooms that had been in her family for generations.” Lindsay Lohan, Audrina Patridge, Rachel Bilson, Orlando Bloom, and Brian Austin Green were among the victims of the “Bling Ring.” The robberies happened between October 2008 and August 2009, when more than $3 million in high-end clothing, jewels, art, cash, and other items were stolen from celebrities.
The premiere of “The Real Bling Ring: Hollywood Heist” is set for September 21. It goes without saying that no one will wish to relive an unfortunate event in their life. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
