Wasn’t this the plot of that Kristen Stewart movie?
Kevin Hart’s personal shopper, Long Island City resident Dylan Syer, was indicted in New York on Wednesday on charges including grand theft. Syer allegedly used 41-year-old Hart’s credit cards to fund a lavish lifestyle that included Patek Philippe watches, Louis Vuitton bags and a Sam Friedman painting.
Queens County Prosecutor Melinda Katz alleges that 29-year-old Syer, hired by Hart in 2015, started small with legitimate and authorized purchases for his client, before using Hart’s credit cards to funnel cash to your personal accounts and purchase items that you had later shipped home by FedEx and business. The alleged charges total about $ 1.2 million over the course of two years.
Syer’s alleged hoard of ill-gotten goods, including more than 20 collectible art world dolls from Bearbrick and Bieber’s beloved KAWS, is currently being hunted down by prosecutors. He returned to court on February 17 and faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
DA Katz thanked Hart for his cooperation in his press release; presumably this will be your preferred legal interaction from February 2021.
