Lupita Nyong’o’s missing Oscars dress has been found!
Well, it wasn’t exactly ‘found’ — it was returned to the hotel by the person who took it.
A guy called us at around 2:30 PM Friday and said he had taken the dress from Lupita’s hotel room after he noticed the door was ajar. He said he and others took 2 pearls off of the dress and took them to the garment district in downtown L.A. … where we’re told they weren’t real.
The thief says he decided to take the dress back to the London in a garment bag that was inside a trash bag that he deposited in a 2nd floor bathroom adjacent to a fitness center.
We contacted the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. and gave them the info. They went over to the hotel and retrieved the bag and they found a garment bag with the dress inside.
Here’s the kicker — the thief only returned the dress after discovering the 6,000 pearls on the dress were fake and that the dress is ‘worthless’ because he wants the world to know “Hollywood’s fake bulls**t.”
Check out photos from the police’s recovery of the dress.
