SOCIAL media happy celebrities, let Hilary Duff be a lesson for you.
The singer and Younger star has fallen victim to a home robbery that may have been sparked by her latest Instagram post — alerting her millions of followers that she was far away from home enjoying a holiday.
Duff, 29, posted a short video to her 8 million Instagram followers four days ago. In it, the star can be seen doing a handstand off a pier, a vision of holiday relaxation.
“CANADA,” she captioned the video, letting the world know she was many thousands of kilometres away from her Beverly Hills, Los Angeles home
It was the latest of several posts that appeared to show the star on holiday. “Losing track of days,” she captioned an earlier photo.
TMZ reports that the very same day, someone broke into Duff’s house, making off with jewellery and valuables to the tune of several hundred thousand dollars. It’s understood that Duff and her family are still on holiday, so police do not yet know the full extent of her loss from the burglary.
“This is a scary and upsetting situation for anyone to go through, but Hilary is thankful that her family, her staff, her home and her pets are all safe,” her rep told Us Weekly. “That said, she has a significant security team in place that will work with the authorities on this incident and handle security measures moving forward.”
