Just when you thought you’ve seen it all in Tinsel Town, something else comes along to shock you. Lupita Nyong’o’s stunning Calvin Klein pearl dress, which was stolen earlier this week has been returned by the thieves! Before you think those bandits had a change of heart or a guilty conscience over the entire thing you may want to sit down and grab a glass for this interesting tea. Now the dress which the Academy-Award winner wore at this year’s Oscars ceremony which allegedly was made out of 6,000 Akoya pearls was snatched out of her hotel room in West Hollywood and is reportedly valued at $150,000.  According to TMZ, video footage didn’t help police nab those responsible for the crime due to the surveillance cameras being “spotty” and none of them directed on the area surrounding Lupita’s room door. What made the culprits return the dress then?

Apparently the pearls are fakes! A person claiming to be responsible for stealing Lupita’s dress contacted TMZ to let them know they brought the dress back to the hotel because it wasn’t worth squat. The guy claimed he saw Lupita’s room door open a bit and others snagged two pearls from the dress and headed to the downtown garment district in Los Angeles. There, they were told the pearls weren’t real and decided to take the dress back! The culprit contacted the entertainment site to notify them of what they did because they wanted people to know, “Hollywood’s fake bulls**t.” Um ok, guy.. Meanwhile CK’s reps are claiming they never said to police whether or not the pearls were real or knockoffs. They allege Lupita’s stylist is the one going around charging the pearls were the real deal and it being worth $150,000. So now they are gonna blame Lupita’s camp? C’mon now. Sources close to Women’s Creative Director of Calvin Klein, Francisco Costa told the site,

Did anyone ever say they were real from Calvin Klein? I always assumed everyone knew they were fake, but I guess not.

Ya’ll sure didn’t shoot it down when Lupita was wearing it though…
