Nick Cannon

Impostor Pulls Off Jewelry Heist

People in Nick Cannon's life have a problem with Glitter ... someone pretended to be part of Nick's posse and stole thousands of dollars worth of jewelry from Fred Segal.

Here's what happened.  A guy who called himself Michael called the Santa Monica store and said he worked for Nick, and, being the hubby of Mariah Carey, he needed some jewelry STAT.

Michael asked the woman from Fred Segal to meet him at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood with the goods.  The woman obliged, put the jewelry in a bag and drove to the Hotel. 

A guy met the woman at the front door, but it wasn't Michael ... it was a guy claiming to be a security guard and dressed like one.  The guy apparently indicated he would take the goods up to Nick's room and come down with cash -- in order to avoid paying taxes.

You guessed it.  The woman gave the dude the goods and that was the last she saw of anyone.

The LAPD is on the case.

As for how much the jewelry is worth, let's put it this way.  You can't buy a pair of pants at that store for less than $300.

Wow is stealing jewelry really that easy? The robbers were probably saying "..that was the easiest one yet..like stealing candy from a baby..".

Guess the "woman" will be responsible for it for being so negligent in handing the jewelry to someone she did not know. Dah.

It wasn't like she was delivering a pizza. When you have thousands of dollars worth of merchandise you don't let it out of your control unless you are certain who you are dealing with and have the money in hand.

Nick Cannon Imposter....Very misleading headline.
*A guy who called himself Michael called the Santa Monica store and said he worked for Nick* Nobody tried to pose as Nick cannon. I wish these dumb people would tell the TRUTH once in a while....but then, they don't know the meaning of TRUTH.

I'm sure she had managements permission before she did this. It is Fred Segal after all they deal with celebs and rich folks all the time. This was probably the norm for them. She's not stupid at all more trusting.
