Will Smith

Cops Sweep House

For Michelle Obama Shindig

10/23/2012 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Will Smith
and Jada Pinkett Smith got a visit from L.A. County Sheriff's deputies Monday, who were there to secure the property for a little lunch the Smiths are throwing for the First Lady of the U.S. of A.

Will, Jada and Salma Hayek are hosting the $2,500-a-head lunch for Michelle Obama this Thursday. That's the bargain basement price. If people want their pic taken with Michelle Obama, the price of admission goes up to $10k a couple -- the good news, that includes lunch.

Several units from the Emergency Operations Bureau of the Sheriff's Dept. showed up to sweep the grounds ... inside and out. 

The Smiths live in Calabasas, behind a massive gate with a long, winding road that leads to the main house. Sheriff's deputies -- along with Secret Service -- were everywhere, looking for possible security breaches.

You know it bugs when you see what the 5% can afford but you know what they work hard for what they have. They are only reaping what they sow from their hard work. If we want something like what they have we have to work hard and long hours, are you willing to sacrifice your time like they do? Bet you don't. My boss makes 5 million pays the IRS 1.5 to 2 million. He works for what he earns. Quit blaming the rich for what they have or can afford, they worked for it.

Did you say house! Looks more like an industrial complex to me, which is what it probably is. Makes sense to your business into your domicile I suppose.

Okay - firstly, my old studio apartment - the entire thing - was about the size of that trampoline in the bottom right corner. I now live in an even smaller room, thanks to the economic downturn.

But what I REALLY want to know is: When is some high-falutin' bazillionaire going to buy her or himself 2 MODEST homes and donate a huge chunk to a local health clinic or something so that MASSES of people can benefit from their generosity? If Brad Pitt can spend his own dough to rebuild homes in Louisiana, why can't more wealthy people help out the little guy? Why are we waiting on government to bail us out when wealthy people alone could change this nation? When are the uber rich going to start dumping money into food banks for those independent contractors who need help but don't qualify for food stamps or unemployment? I think so many celebs and politicians are way out of touch because they isolate themselves in these gargantuan houses the size of small countries and then preach to everyone else that they understand when clearly they don't. You can't take this s.h.i.t. with you when you die, so why keep it all and buy a house that looks like a small university? What good is that? How happy does that make you feel? No one is saying they can't live very well, when they can AND help others. Who needs a gift wrapping room or an indoor bowling alley in their home? How many days of each month will they spend bowling? And how much money would they spend at a real bowling alley bowling as much as they normally would at home? $500 maybe? The truth is, this whole article screams of the irony of the great divide .... wealthy people give to powerful politician in hopes that that politician even wins and then turns around and bails out the banks. Okay, not cool. I vote for these politicians but I have come to realize we can do more to help one another rather than to sit around and wait for Congress to get their heads out of their behinds. If this country's going to change, we all need to pitch in and Jada & Will can start by matching what they give in these fundraisers by giving an equal sum to a local food pantry that could literally help tens of thousands.

This is really sad, to see so much house being wasted, as you can't possibly live in all this house. Why don't they share some of this money wasted this way with the poor and homeless who have to shovel thru trash cans for food? I would never want anything like that when others are suffering, and today there are many suffering .They need to put there money where it can help others

The First "Lady" should be ashamed of herself. In these economic times she could not be more inappropriate. However, considering her travels low these last 4 years, why should today be different than any other day. Jackie Kennedy she ain't.
