We’re told security at the recording studio saw it all go down on surveillance cams, so they called the cops and then went out to confront him. They asked what he was doing, and the guy allegedly claimed it was his Porsche. He then got out and started walking.
According to TMZ, the Los Angeles Police Department was called out to a recording studio on Monday afternoon (November 21) after security guards spotted a man approaching the singer’s car. After calling the police, security approached the man, who had opened the door and gotten into the vehicle and was looking for the keys or another way to start the car.
When asked what he was doing, the man claimed the vehicle was his, then proceeded to get out of the car and begin walking. John Legend was unaware of the incident, as he was inside of the studio recording at the time.
John Legend has been having a pretty great year otherwise. In August, he and wife Chrissy Teigen announced that they are expecting their third child.
The news came two years after the couple lost a baby boy to a miscarriage. Tiegen, who shared the news in an Instagram post, admitted that she was nervous about announcing the arrival of their new child.
“The last few years have been a blur of emotions to say the least, but joy has filled our home and hearts again,” she wrote. “1 billion shots later (in the leg lately, as u can see!) we have another on the way.
When the cops found the guy, he took off running. After a brief foot chase, cops took him into custody.
The suspect was taken to jail and booked for a felony — attempted grand theft auto. He’s being held on $85,000 bail.
