Miley Cyrus' Stolen Maserati Has Been Found, But Who Was the Culprit?
Miley Cyrus might have recovered from her allergic reaction and hit the road all over again, but she hasn't seen her end of troubles. Cyrus' house was robbed on Friday and the criminals made off with some jewelry and her brand-new 2014 Maserati. There were reportedly some other items taken as well, but the car cost $102,000, which is about the amount in items that burglars took the last time Cyrus' house was robbed in 2013. Luckily, Cyrus' stolen car was recovered in Simi Valley, California on Monday, parked in plain view in the street.
The culprits are still unidentified and the LAPD's North Hollywood station is asking everyone to contact them with any information they might have about the crime. Meanwhile, Cyrus appears to be having the time of her life abroad, if her Instagram feed is anything to judge by. The fact that the police managed to recover at least some of her stolen items in only three days probably doesn't have anything to do with Cyrus' good cheer, but it probably helps.
In the meantime, there are no solid details about the burglars except that it was a man and a woman who scaled the fence at Cyrus' car and made a beeline for her garage. They left Cyrus' car unharmed and in plain view, which makes me think that they were only planning to borrow it for a little while. And, if that's the case, then it could very well have been some other celebrities who thought Cyrus would be totally cool with them borrowing her things for a while. In fact, here's a potential list of suspects.
We all know that the Biebs has a fondness for fast cars. He was arrested for drag racing and driving while under the influence, after all. Considering Bieber has yet to reform himself like he's promised to do in the past, who's to say he wouldn't borrow Cyrus' new car for a test drive? As for the woman with him, well, he's been seen with a lot of models lately. Nothing impresses a model like a Maserati, I assume.
Jay Z and Beyoncé
Jay Z and Beyoncé filmed an elaborate On the Run tour video that had the world begging them for more. Stealing a Maserati from Cyrus' garage would be a perfect part two to promote their tour. The fact that it turned up unharmed further supports the theory that it was just a publicity stunt. They're the '03 Bonnie and Clyde, you guys. They probably know how to steal a car.
Considering Rihanna has an album called Good Girl Gone Bad and a song called "Shut Up and Drive", is it really a stretch to think she might take a joyride in a Maserati? Maybe Cyrus gave Rihanna permission to borrow the car and just forgot to tell her assistant about it. Then again, if it had been Rihanna, then we'd probably have seen a selfie on Instagram of her posing on the hood by now.
Franco is now known for his outrageous stunts and creepy ideas of marketing. At least, I'm still hoping that whole thing with Franco hitting on a teenager was just his idea of marketing. Maybe he has a movie coming out where his character is a car thief and he borrowed Cyrus' car in order to do some method acting with one of his female co-stars.
"Prince Harry"/Matt Hicks
The real Prince Harry is sort of known for royal misbehavior, so it's fair to guess that I Wanna Marry Harry might be in the midst of filming a second season, right? Granted, if I were on this show, I wouldn't believe that Prince Harry would want to steal a car with me on a date, but then I wouldn't believe that Prince Harry was using a reality dating show to get with me to begin with. At least the producers made sure that Cyrus got her car back.
Before you tell me that Blue Ivy is too young to have stolen a car and then taken a three day joyride in it, let me remind you that Blue Ivy had a song out before she could take. You are never too young for a life of crime and it's better that she's getting it out of her system now than later in life, right? Besides, she could just be upset that she didn't get a role in the On the Run Tour video.
