John Legend shut down reports that his luggage had been stolen by his cab driver when he landed at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York on Thursday (March 23).
The singer caught wind of the report on Twitter (March 24) and called the story false and confirmed that he had retrieved his bag after is was stolen by someone at the airport. Reports are saying the luggage contained nearly $30,000 in property. TMZ was told the bag contained a pair of Cartier Panther cuff links with clear green stones, valued at $30k. The clothes inside were valued at $500, and there was a $500 pair of eyeglasses.
“This story is untrue. We use a trusted car service and they did not rob me. Our Delta greeter made a mistake and left a bag on the cart,” he tweeted. “The bag was taken because it was left unattended. The airport police caught the person who took it (on video) and retrieved my bag.”
