A ‘fake’ Kazakh millionaire has allegedly stolen £500,000 of jewellery from F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone’s daughter Petra Ecclestone’s London home.
The billionaire heiress discovered she had lost diamond earrings and a diamond Rolex watch following a viewing at her Belgravia home. She was not as the property at the time of the viewing.
A friend told MailOnline: “Petra thought that anyone going to see her home would be thoroughly vetted.
“She was out with her sister Tamara a few weeks ago when the viewing took place. As soon as this man left, it was discovered that the jewellery, which was on a bedroom nightstand, was missing.”
In an interview with Grazia magazine in 2011, Ecclestone said she has a collection of seven Rolex watches, worth an average of £20,000 each.
A spokeswoman for Ecclestone said: “The theft occurred at the London house during a property viewing. The family were not home at the time. No further comment will be made.”
Earlier this year, the 24-year-old bought a French chateau-style property in Los Angeles, the most expensive home ever listed for sale in the United States, for £55m.
The 57,000ft mansion has more than 100 rooms, including 14 bedrooms.
