L.A. thief stole laptop with unreleased music: ‘Please don’t listen’
She claims laptop was not stolen after all and that thief just wanted more than just the music: ‘They wanted me’
Lana Del Rey said that her $6,500 laptop, filled with unreleased music, didn’t end up with the thief who took it from her car in Burbank.
The pop star said she had a bad feeling when the thief started driving away with her new MacBook Air laptop, which had two USB ports.
“I thought it was a mistake,” she said. “It took me four days to find out that that was it.”
“It’s not the first time I’ve had something stolen out of my car,” she said.
The singer had gone to her friend’s house to watch a movie and left her car in her friend’s guesthouse at 8 p.m. Tuesday night. The friend’s daughter was at her friend’s home visiting and was in the guesthouse, police said. At 9 p.m., the friend’s daughter took the laptop with her to a friend’s house, where Del Rey was also staying, police spokesman Josh Rubens said.
The next morning, at 8 a.m., the friend’s daughter drove the stolen laptop to Los Angeles, police said. It was found a few hours later, not far from Del Rey’s home in Bel Air.
“Please don’t listen,” Del Rey said. “I don’t know where it came from. Maybe it had been in the garage or the carport. I had a big problem with it when I got home.�
