Florida Mother and Son Allegedly Stole $70,000 From Kim Kardashian, Other Celebrities

A mother-son team in Lake Mary, Florida, carried out their own personal Robin Hood dreams earlier this year when authorities say they stole over $70,000 from hot-shot celebrities like Kim Kardashian, her mother Kris Jenner, and Ashton Kutcher.

But it's not exactly a Robin Hood story. Kyah Green and Luis Flores are accused of using the stars' personal information to conduct wire transfers and credit card transactions on their behalf -- but giving the cash only to themselves.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, the pair is believed to have used the personal information that hackers leaked several months ago to change the addresses and phone numbers on celebrities' credit card accounts. Then they had replacement credit cards shipped to their apartment, and voila! Money for nothing.

Nothing except a little jail time, anyway. Green was released following her arrest and is awaiting trial, but Flores remains in the Seminole County Jail without bail.

In addition to the Kardashian empire and Ashton Kutcher, the scheme also targeted Mel Gibson, Tom Cruise, Beyonce, Michelle Obama, and FBI Director Robert Mueller. The couple also applied for credit in Paris Hilton's name, the Sentinel says.

If that's true, the duo has managed to piss off the President, the FBI, the Scientologists, and the Illuminati in one fell swoop. That's a lot of powerful enemies. On second thought, maybe these two would sleep easier at night if they were in prison.
