John Legend Luggage Stolen at JFK

3/24/2017 10:34 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

0324-john-legend-TMZ-03John Legend had a rough landing in NYC when someone at JFK airport stole his luggage with some very expensive items.

John arrived at JFK Thursday when a Delta greeter made a mistake and left his bag on the luggage cart. Someone grabbed the bag while it was left unattended.

We're told the bag contained a pair of Cartier Panther cuff links with clear and green stones, valued at $30k. The clothes inside were valued at $500, and there was a $500 pair of eyeglasses.

It's unclear if the thief knew he was stealing John Legend's suitcase.

Cops were able to use surveillance video to nab the culprit, and John got his bag back.

The police said the thief was John's livery driver, but Legend says that was not the case. We circled back with cops who say the thief was a livery driver who has had multiple problems with the law at JFK.

The story was first reported by the New York Daily News.

"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Kim DePaola's car is at the center of a double murder in New Jersey -- and her son's friend could be one of the victims ... TMZ has learned.

Two badly burned bodies were found in the 'RHONJ' star's torched car Friday -- both had reportedly been shot in the head ... execution style.

We've learned Kim's son, Chris, was the one who regularly drove the car. We're told a friend drove Chris to the airport  last Wednesday, and was in possession of the car while Chris was out of town.

Our sources say the friend was not supposed to drive the car around town ... rather, Chris told him to take it back to his house and leave it.  Apparently that didn't happen.

Family sources say Chris has not been able to reach the friend and is extremely worried.

Later Friday, police in Paterson responded to a call that shots had been fired on East 28th street ... when cops arrived, the car was fully engulfed in flames and the bodies burned beyond recognition.

White House Fence Jumper Lingered Nearly 20 Minutes Even Jiggled Doorknob

0317-white-house-getty-02The man who jumped the White House fence last week was able to prowl around the property for nearly 20 minutes, got right up to the White House, hid behind a pillar and even jiggled a doorknob trying to get in ... TMZ has learned.

Jonathan Tuan-Anh was arrested by Secret Service, but it has become one of the most embarrassing incidents for the Secret Service in years.

The Secret Service says Tuan-Anh first jumped a 5-foot fence and then an 8-foot gate. The agency says he was on the property for 16 minutes, but sources familiar with the situation tell us it was closer to 20 minutes.  

A source, who was fully briefed, tells us the man got right up to the White House but went undetected. President Trump was in the building at the time of the intrusion.

We're also told Tuan-Anh had a prior incident with the Secret Service earlier in the day, so it's all the more reason he should have been on the agency's radar.

After Tuan-Anh was arrested agents found 2 cans of mace.

Secret Service agents are angry over the breach, and believe they have been hindered by insufficient technology to detect intruders.

Chrissy Metz was her own opening act when she gave 2 die-hard "This Is Us" fans a surprise thrill in the middle of Bed Bath & Beyond.

The awesomely fun run-in went down Monday night in Studio City when newlyweds Kai and Naomi Hall were cruising the kitchen products aisle. Lo and behold, they almost literally bumped into Chrissy ... who happily improv'd this clip.

The Halls tell us they were beside themselves, obvious from the vid, and described Chrissy as "humble, sweet, generous" and more interested in hearing about them than herself.

One thing she wasn't? Loose-lipped. They tried like hell to get anything out of her about Tuesday's season finale, but she wouldn't crack.

So, yeah ... Jack's death ... still a mystery.
