Comedian Kevin Hart was reportedly robbed of $1 million (nearly R15m) by his personal shopper.

Dylan Jason Syer, who the actor hired in 2015, allegedly made unauthorised purchases – which included jewellery and fine art – using Kevin’s credit cards. 

According to People, Queens district attorney Melinda Katz filed an asset-forfeiture action against Syer in a civil court, “seeking to seize, restrain and ultimately forfeit Syer's assets up to the amount that he allegedly stole”.
