John Legend had his suitcase containing over $31,000 of his possessions stolen at JFK airport in New York, but police quickly returned it to him.
John Legend had his suitcase stolen at JFK airport in New York - but police quickly retrieved it.
The 38-year-old musician was almost left without his luggage - which is reported to have included a pair of $30,000 Cartier Panther jewel-studded cuff links and a $500 pair of sunglasses, as well as designer clothes - when it was left unattended by his greeter and an opportunistic thief tried to grab it.
Luckily for the 'All of Me' hitmaker, airport police saw the events unfold on the CCTV cameras around the area, and managed to catch the culprit before he made off with John's possessions.
Taking to Twitter on Friday (24.03.17), John quoted a tweet from one fan asking whether the thief had approached him and said: ''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 (sic)''
He then 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.
''Thanks to the airport police/security. One could say it's been ''handled''. (sic)''
It is not known whether John was travelling alone at the time, or if his wife Chrissy Teigen and their 11-month-old daughter Luna were with him.
Meanwhile, the 'Love Me Now' recently said he credits Chrissy with helping him ''grow'' as a person.
He said: ''We were always different. I was always a little bit more buttoned up, and she was always more brash and free.
''I would get a little nervous at first with some of the things she would say because I didn't know how people would react. I usually played it more safely.
''[But now] I think she's brought me out of my shell a bit, and made me enjoy life a little bit more. It's been fun to grow together in that.''
