Bloom Bling Burgled

Orlando_Bloom Sorry, but when the opportunity to do an awesomely ridiculous alliterative headline à la Page Six arises, you gotta carpe the diem, know what I'm saying? But, you guys, it is totally not funny that Orlando Bloom's Hollywood Hills home was robbed of over $500K worth of jewelry, so you just stop your giggling. This is serious business.

I am probably not the first to do so, but I would like to implicate Lindsay Lohan in this case, because if something in Hollywood goes missing, there's like a 60% chance that Lindsay thought you said she could have it one time and then pocketed it when you went to the bathroom.



According to the trashy but typically reliable TMZ.com, LAPD investigators believe the burglary to be an inside job, so if Orlando has ever partied with LiLo, I certainly wouldn't rule it out. However, I'm mostly just curious what kind of jewelry Orlando has that totals $500K? TMZ mentions two "very expensive" watches, but we're talking half a mil, here. Did he score the One Ring To Rule Them All in his LOTR deal? A chest of doubloons from the Pirates franchise? Seriously, just what kind of ice did Orly have in that house? 

This becomes especially more intriguing to me with the knowledge that Orlando Bloom is a practicing Buddhist. Aren't believers in the Four Noble Truths supposed to eschew materialism, seeing as how life is suffering because of attachment to the material world, with cessation of suffering attainable only by letting go of that which is material? However, Bloom belongs to Söka Gakkai International, which I'm pretty sure is like the Scientology of Buddhism though I'm no religious scholar unless you count reading Wikipedia entries on Buddhism as scholarship. Regardless, virtually everyone in Hollywood that's not into Scientology is into SGI and, last I heard, the Cartier on Rodeo is still doing okay, financially speaking, is what I'm trying to say.

All religious and secular snark aside for just a second, I do hope LAPD finds the person who stole Orlando's family jewels. Snort. Okay, okay — sorry, but I'm, like 13 years old, mentally. Being serious now. It truly sucks to be robbed, no matter how well off you are, because the feeling of invasion often stays with you far longer than the financial loss, and I know how much of a violation it is when someone unknown to you has broken into your home or even your car, whether the thieves got anything of value or not. If this turns out to be a simple B&E rather than an inside job by someone close to him, he's very lucky he happened to be in New York at the time.

I know! What on earth could a guy have that could cost that much in JEWELRY, of all things?

Well, I guess it could be watches, after all: http://stylecrave.com/2009-05-29/luxury-watches-10-of-the-worlds-most-expensive-watches/

But it's much more fun to speculate that he has a stack of expensive jewels that he can give out to his lady loves....

michele

yea, what is up with the half million in "jewelry?" uh, ok. that is crazy. i was thinking how did he get so rich, then i remembered he managed to be in more than one highly successful trilogy and uh, now is totally rolling in the dough. can he adopt me? or can he just hire me to watch his valuables?

JellyBean

Were there any "man furs" missing? If so, Lilo was definitely in on the job.

Well, once again the rich are different. So every time I see Orlando Bloom I'm going to think about how his pocket change could pay for my kid's college.

Clearly, all those rich Hollywood people would not be Buddhists if it meant that you did not get to be rich and buy crap that rich people have.
