Kim Kardashian’s best friend and hair stylist, Jen Atkin, was the victim of home invaders last night, but fortunately for the celebrity stylist, she caught the entire incident on tape!
According to People Magazine, in a surveillance video acquired by the publication, Jen wrote that “whoever is in my closet right now stealing my jewelry, we have you on camera and the police are on their way.”
The stylist was busy working on a photo shoot at a beach around the time of the robbery. Despite the incident, Jen said they “feel ok,” as well as “happy and blessed.” She added that it’s weird thinking that the people who robbed her obviously must need the items more than she does.

As you may know by now, the Kardashians are no stranger to burglaries, as men in Paris robbed Kim Kardashian of millions of dollars worth of jewelry when she was on vacation at the time.
In March of this year, home invaders attacked Kendall Jenner’s home as well. Reports at the time claimed that it could be an “inside job” involving some of the staff.
After the incident, Kris Jenner reportedly fired some of their employees for letting such an ordeal take place.
Additionally, one of the criminals went straight for her pair of Yeezy’s; the brand made famous by rapper Kanye West. Atkin claimed that none of her designer shoes are missing.
2017 is famous for being the year of celebrity burglaries, as many prolific stars had their homes robbed including Nicki Minaj, Anthony Young, and Alanis Morisette among many others.
The LAPD stated that it could be due to the rise of social media, where potential victims show the world their whereabouts.
