Chloe Cherry, the Euphoria breakout actress, is facing charges of a misdemeanor in connection to a retail theft that took place in her hometown of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. A store in her hometown has since sued her for the alleged theft after she allegedly failed to pay for a blouse with her credit card, despite paying for other items during a December shopping.
Court documents showed that the star received the charges on Monday, January 2023, accusing her of a misdemeanor retail theft. However, the 25-year-old’s legal representative has since denied the claims, insisting the blouse incident was simply confusion. Speaking to TMZ, which broke the news on Thursday, February 2, he said:
“In December, there was confusion over a blouse that wasn’t properly charged to my client’s credit card.”
Euphoria’s Chloe Cherry’s Theft Incident May Drag On For A While
TMZ reported that the theft involving the Euphoria star Chloe Cherry took place at the Building Character shopping center. Per a witness, the icon allegedly left the store with a $28 blouse, without paying after trying them on in the dressing room. The incident was not easily dismissed as the actress paid for other items she purchased using her credit card. This prompted the store owners to involve the police.
The witness alleged that Chloe Cherry admitted to taking the blouse after officers confronted her over the theft. However, Chloe’s representative insists the witness’ claims were false, as his client never admitted to stealing from a retail store. He proceeded to accuse the store of riding on the actress’ fame, saying:
“In no way did she admit to taking the blouse since that was not the case. This story seems to be more about a local store trading on a celebrity’s name more than anything else.”
The varying versions of the story have made the theft incident more complicated. On the one hand, a store accuses a rising star of making away with a $28 dress. On the other is Chloe Cherry, whose career has been put on the line due to her alleged involvement in a case of theft which may not have happened to begin with, per her rep. The court scheduled a preliminary hearing on February 22, 2023.
