Kyle Richards husband, Mauricio Umansky is finally speaking out after their new $8.2M home was broken into and robbed of nearly $1m worth of items.
Mauricio spoke out about the robbery via Instagram, telling fans “Nothing replaces Family. They can steal your belongings, but they can’t steal your memories or your love.”
Meanwhile, more details about what was taken from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills couple’s home has emerged.
TMZ reports that the robbery was a professional job and that the robbers knew exactly how to break in the Encino home without being detected. The robbers used a ladder to climb to a second story balcony, then broke a window and ransacked the two master bedroom closets.
Initially, we reported that thieves stole $150,000 worth of watches Mauricio had, and now we’ve learned that one of the watches was given to him by his late grandfather.
As for Kyle’s items, the burglars took everything but the few things she brought with her to Aspen, where she and her family are currently vacationing.
Among the items stolen were her gold wedding band with the inscription,“Mauricio forever.” The burglars also took all Kyle’s handbags including her Birkins and Chanels, some which were given to Kyle by her mom and were to be passed down to her daughters one day.
Also taken were the $100k earrings Mauricio got Kyle for their 20th wedding anniversary last year, which Andy Cohen presented to Kyle on Watch What Happens Live.
Despite initial rumors that this was an inside job, the cops tell the RHOBH couple that they don’t believe that to be true and say that this robbery is similar to hits on the homes of Mariah Carey, Yasiel Puig, and other celebrities.
Apparently, this robbery was a freak event and was able to happen due to a series of unfortunate events.
The robbers were able to gain access because of three key factors. First, the house’s state of the art security system was not turned on due to a misunderstanding, second, the family’s dogs were away at a 5-week obedience course, and third, the surveillance system was turned off because of renovations.
Currently, there’s an armed guard at the RHOBH couple’s property.
I cannot believe that the robbers were able to steal so much from Kyle and Mauricio.
Thoughts on Mauricio’s statement? Are you surprised the thieves stole so much from the Umansky’s? Do you think Kyle and Mauricio will be able to recover any of their stolen items?
