“Not Okay” star Zoey Deutch has joined the growing list of celebrities whose homes have been broken into and valuables were stolen. The Disney alum rose to fame due to her recurring role in “The Suite Life on Deck” over a decade ago and several other titles like “The Politician” and “The Outfit.”
Raiding celebrities’ homes and making off with their goods has occurred more often than not in the past years, with Tamara Ecclestone’s 2019 robbery being the most notable. The British model was reportedly robbed of £26 million worth of jewels and was desperate enough to issue a £6 million reward for their return.
According to reports, Deutch was not at home at the time of the robbery and discovered the break-in when she got home. Over a quarter of a million dollars was reportedly stolen from her in cash and jewelry.

Zoey Deutch Was Robbed
In a recent report by TMZ, “Not Okay” star Deutch returned to her Los Angeles home to discover her door smashed in. Upon inspection, the actress realized that her home was a mess and around $300,000 in both cash and jewelry had been taken away by the thief.
The incident reportedly occurred earlier this month, and Deutch was out for only a few hours. She did not reveal her intention to leave her house on social media; hence, it isn’t certain how exactly the robbers discovered her absence and struck.
TMZ further revealed that no arrests relating to the robbery had been made; however, the police are currently trying to identify the thieves via a video taken in Deutch’s neighborhood.
Arsenio Hall, Other Stars Were Targeted Recently
The 27-year-old Deutch is only the latest of the recent robbery attacks targeted at celebrities. According to TMZ, in an incident last month, rapper Tee Grizzley was robbed of more than a million dollars in cash and jewelry. At the time, the rapper was mourning the passing of his friend, PnB, but that didn’t seem to deter the robbers.
At the time of the L.A. break-in, no one was at home, and the jewelry stolen alone was worth over a million. In addition to the cash stolen, Grizzley likely lost closer to $2 million.
Arsenio Hall, known for his role in “Coming to America,” also recently faced not one but two robbery attempts between August and October. Both times, the talk show host was in his house, and the robbers apparently got frightened enough to abandon the heist. The police are reportedly exploring the possibility that the break-ins were related incidents.
Zoey Deutch Starred In ‘Not Okay’
Deutch’s most recent movie, “Not Okay,” was released in July this year and saw the actress play an aspiring writer named Danny Sanders. The film was written and directed by Quinn Shepherd, who also starred in the project. Actors like Dylan O’Brien and Mia Isaac were also part of the movie’s cast.
“Not Okay” follows the life of Sanders and her attempt to be noticed and loved by Colin (O’Brien), her work crush. She works for a sited named Depravity as a photo editor. Things started taking a wild turn after Sanders faked a writer’s retreat to Paris in a bid to alleviate her loneliness and amp her popularity on social media.
Sanders gets even more famous than she expected after several terrorist attacks occurred in Paris during the period she claimed she was in the city. Deutch’s character tries to keep up with her already lengthy list of lies in an attempt to keep up the facade.
Zoey Deutch Spoke To Several ‘Canceled People’
In an earlier interview with Insider, Deutch revealed that she did not have to do much digging concerning her role in “Not Okay” mainly because she had much experience with the bad side of social media and its influencers. The 27-year-old revealed that she consumed “so much of it all the time.”
Deutch explained, “This movie is a satire, and it’s sort of, at times poking fun at a lot of different corners of our culture, and I’m one of them. I am part of this. So it is by no means a takedown of anyone; it’s a commentary on a lot of things.”
The “Vampire Academy” actress further revealed that she and Shepherd spoke to several “canceled” people to get them to play a role in the movie. Deutch said the search was for “people who had actually been canceled and who were willing and interested in poking fun at themselves and being a little bit self-aware.”
Although each conversation seemed like they were making headway, the actress was informed by the “Not Okay” studio that the people declined to participate in the film. “It was funny,” she said. “We felt scammed by them. They lied to us.”
