Heiress Allegedly Breaks into Home, Steals and Gets Naughty
A recent Los Angeles crime story is making headlines in New York City. Johnson & Johnson heiress Casey Johnson was arrested in Los Angeles yesterday for grand theft, after model Jasmine Lennard, a friend of hers, returned to her Hollywood apartment from a trip to find various items stolen, a wet towel on the floor and, well, a used dildo in her bed, reports the New York Post.
It was a confusing moment until Lennard, a former contestant on Britain's Make Me a Supermodel, received a text from Johnson's on-and-off-again girlfriend Courtenay Semel, daughter of Yahoo! CEO Terry Semel.
"There's a problem, Jaz, Casey Johnson just got into bed with me and she is wearing your underwear," the text read. "You need to call police. There are documents here, your shoes and your clothing -- you need to call the police." And so the police were called and Johnson was booked yesterday afternoon at the Van Nuys Division station.
Lennerd told the Post she considered Johnson a little sister, who she helped through a drugs and alcohol problem. But for now, the friendship appears to be off: "She breaks into my Hollywood apartment, masturbates in my bed, has a shower in my bathroom, takes every thing in my apartment," she said. "This time she really messed with the wrong lady. I am going to teach her a lesson."
