Kirsten Dunst’s hotel suite burglarized by thugs wanting drugs
Hollywoodnews.com: An attorney defending James Jimenez, the thief who broke into Kirsten Dunst’s SoHo Grand hotel suite in 2007, revealed a bit too much about the actress’s temporary domicile on Tuesday.
Apparently, Jimenez, who had snatched Dunst’s purse, broke into her room because there were drugs in the room. Jimenez was accompanying drug dealer Jarrod Beinerman who according to his attorney Robert Parker, “is a major New York drug dealer.”
According to the New York Daily News, Dunst wasn’t present in the Manhattan Supreme court, but her spokesman denied the actress’ connection to the drug dealers.
“That is completely false and clearly a desperate ploy by the attorney,” Stephen Huvane said.
Jimenez broke into the hotel room where Dunst and actor Simon Pegg were staying while they filmed “How to Lose Friends and Alienate People.” Jimenez was unaware that his co-hort stole the actress’ $2,000 handbag and Pegg’s iPod and camera.
Assistant District Attorney Tricia Stolfi Collins accused Jimenez of knowing full well that he was breaking into the celebrities’ hotel room.
