Find the answers below as you scroll down this article.
Who Is Bling Ring Rachel Lee?
Rachel Lee was one of the members of Calabasses hoodlums AKA Bling Ring. The Bling Ring raided the homes of equally young, unequally loaded celebrities for whatever their hearts desired in 2008 and 2009. Rachel was accused of stealing at Lindsay Lohan’s home.
She and her peers, Alexis Neiers, Nick Prugo, Diana Tamayo, and Courtney Ames — were exposed as the burglars who had made headlines for breaking into the homes of Lohan, Hilton, Audrina Patridge, Orlando Bloom, Rachel Bilson, and many others. She and her band of goons robbed an estimated $3 million worth of designer clothing, jewelry, and cash.
Rachel Lee is a Korean-American who was raised in Calabasas, California, according to Vanity Fair. She first met Nick Prugo in 2006 while they were both students at Indian Hills High School in LA’s upscale Agoura Hills district. The teenagers, who had a common interest in fashion, quickly found themselves robbing LA’s richest.
Rachel was considered the mastermind behind the robbery and was sentenced to 16 months in prison for her participation. Initially, Superior Court Judge Larry P. Fidler dismissed Lee’s felony charge, calling evidence of her involvement “woefully insufficient.” The crazy, careless burglary outburst by the high school pals was described in a Vanity Fair piece from March 2010. It makes the blatant assumption that Lee committed the robbery of Lohan.
Rachel’s accomplice Nicholas Frank Prugo told the magazine: “Rachel’s, like, biggest conquest was Lindsay Lohan. It was her ultimate fashion icon.”
When Rachel was taken into custody by the LAPD, she notoriously asked, excited: “What did Lindsay say?”
Following Rachel’s arrest [in Vegas! ], police reportedly seized a number of things from her father’s house, including laptops, images of a woman who was only half-clothed, images of Lee’s acquaintances, $100 dollars, a Korean passport, and a small quantity of marijuana.
According to reports, police also discovered several items that might have belonged to the famous people, including Lindsay Lohan’s cap, trousers associated with Rachel Bilson, and images of Paris Hilton, nude.
Where Is Bling Ring Rachel Lee Now?
In 2018, Bling Ring’s Rachel Lee spoke about after nearly a decade.
“As a teen, I was chasing love in all the wrong places and by the time I realized, it was too late and I was in prison. I truly feel prison was a blessing in disguise — the best thing that ever happened to me,” Rachel exclusively told Us Weekly. “It made me realize you can only trust yourself at the end of the day.”
She and the group’s antics were adapted into a show named Pretty Wild, and her accomplice Alexis Haines’s role was played by Emma Watson at a bar during the Super Bowl in 2017. “I walked up to her and I said, ‘Hi, my name is Rachel I just wanted to introduce myself because you were in a movie based upon my life. I actually had the chance to work on the movie but I didn’t feel comfortable at the time.’ And she put out her hand and said, ‘It’s nice to meet you.’”
After her time in prison, Rachel withdrew from the public eye and most recently earned a cosmetology degree. However, she is aware of her errors and is willing to get past them. “If I could do it all over again I would’ve made the right choices instead of the wrong ones,” she tells Us. “I would’ve changed a lot.”
Wendy Feldman, Rachel’s jail counselor, recently revealed to FOX411’s Pop Tarts column that Rachel actively started attending treatment while she awaited her day in court. She also entirely quit drinking, and she and her mother became much closer. Rachel accepted full responsibility for her acts and admitted her involvement in burglaries.
Rachel served two years. She earned her freedom but was on parole on March 28, 2013.
