Singing superstar Cher is livid after learning one of her prized – and very expensive – wigs has been stolen.
The “Believe” singer’s production company has reported the theft of the hairpiece valued at $8,000 to $10,000 – apparently stolen from the star’s collection of tresses during a sold-out concert stop in Richmond, Virginia.
Police spokeswoman Christie Collins says, “The wig is described as half-black and half-teal, and it was braided.”
While police did not release the wig’s value, they have classified the case as a grand larceny – meaning the value exceeds $200.
Cher’s tour manager estimated the value between $8,000 and $10,000, says Larry W. Wilson, Jr., general manager of the Richmond Coliseum, where the Living Proof – Farewell Tour 2003 made a stop on February 25.
Cher took off the wig after singing “All or Nothing” and put it back in a room where her other wigs were stored, says Collins.
He notes, “We’re still not 100 percent sure the wig was stolen out of our facility.”
