On the early hours of Sunday 11th July, the 34-year-old Slim actress, Jodie Turner-Smith took to Twitter to reveal that she had to file a police report after robbers reportedly broke into her hotel room and stole jewelries worth thousands of dollars.
Eyewitnesses shared with Variety that the alleged break-in took place at Jodie‘s hotel room while she was staying at the Marriott on the Croisette.
On Friday (July 9), Jodie had stepped out for breakfast with her one-year-old daughter. While she was away, the robbers broke into her hotel room, stealing thousands of euros and several pieces of jewelry, which included her mother’s wedding ring.
After learning about break-in, Jodie was moved to a different hotel and has been given a large security detail.
It is being speculated that the robbers target Jodie after she attended the After Yang premiere during the film festival, where she wore lots of rings, necklaces, and earrings. The sources believed that the robbers thought that Jodie was still in possession of those jewels.
