Jonathan Cheban Attacked After Posting Pic of $500K Watch on Instagram
Lifestyles of the rich and famous? More like rich and careless.
Kim Kardashian's BFF, Jonathan Cheban, was lunching at Southampton’s 75 Main when he decided to show off his new piece of arm candy to the world on Instagram, a decision that ended up garnering a bit more attention than he had bargained for.
Jonathan posted a photo of his blinged-out $500K Jacob & Co. watch, along with the epic humblebrag of a caption, “I think I overdressed my wrist today with my @jacobandco… 22 karats is a bit much for daytime LOL.”
According to the NY Post, after the pic went up, people started coming up to the Keeping Up With the Kardashians staple to inquire about the piece, including a one individual who wanted to do more than just take a look at Jonathan’s mounain of ice.
“A guy came over and started asking some questions,” a source told the paper. “Jonathan was very friendly. But then the guy grabbed Jonathan... and tried to steal his half-million-dollar watch! Jonathan fought back to stop him, and he pushed Jonathan to the floor.”
A security guard attempted to intervene, but the attacker ran from the scene, escaping capture. As for Jonathan, his feathers may have been ruffled, but with his watch still securely on his wrist, he wasn’t about to spend the rest of his day in a police station giving information over a few minor scrapes.
“He left the Hamptons. He was there for a private event. He was only [in town] for three hours. Disaster. He had to go to Europe... so he didn’t want to deal with [police] reports.”
The eyewitness added, “He wasn’t badly hurt... his wrist got banged up.”
