Kate Moss had three pieces of artwork stolen from her home while she was inside.

Diddy‘s East Hampton house was broken into earlier this month. Though the intruder didn’t steal anything (he was just looking for a cool hangout spot), the rapper should consider himself lucky. ¬†Other celebrities haven’t been so fortunate. In recent robberies, Kate Moss lost valuable artwork, Rachel Bilson an entire shoe collection and Paris Hilton lost $2 million in jewelry.

From 2008-2009, a group of mostly teens referred to as “The Burglar Bunch” and “The Bling Ring” robbed the homes of various celebrities including Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox and Hilton collecting nearly $3 million in stolen items.

Consequently, Sofia Coppola is directing a film titled “The Bling Ring” inspired by the actual events of the gang of six. The film is rumoured to star Emma Watson and Kirsten Dunst, stars who have had their homes broken into.

The burglaries occurred while in Canada with then fiancé Hayden Christiansen.

Stolen: nearly $130,000 in property including a television set, jewelry and tons of designer clothes and purses.

In April 2010 someone previously stole his credit cards amassing nearly $30,000 in charges.

While filming 'How to Lose Friends and Alienate People' Dunst's penthouse suite at a Manhattan hotel was ransacked.

Kate Moss

Stolen: Three pieces of artwork including a Banksy portrait worth nearly $140,000.

Diddy

When: Numerous times since 2001.

Stolen: Nothing.

What's so unusual about the Diddy break-ins are that the crazed fan didn't steal anything. He just wanted to live it up.

After breaking in through an unlocked basement door, 30-year-old Quamine Taylor ate his food, indulged in his alcohol and modelled around in his wardrobe for 24 hours before being detained.

What's more? This wasn't Taylor's first time in Diddy's palace. He's made trips to the East Hampton house several times fooling guards and police into believing he's part of the rapper's entourage and cousin.

Oh, Taylor also decided Diddy's digs aren't that grand.

'I got a good night's sleep, but it's not anything too special. It's just like a three-bedroom.'
