Beverly Hills hairdresser to the stars, Maria Gabriela Perez, was arrested today, for credit card fraud. She is accused of ripping off her celebrity clients including Jennifer Aniston, Anne Hathaway, Melanie Griffith and Liv Tyler.
The crazy stylist, Maria Gabriela Perez, 51, is accused of using the credit card numbers, of her star clients who frequented her salon. It’s reported she stole over $240k from Liv Tyler, her daddy new American Idol judge, Steven Tyler must be mad.
Maria Gabriela Perez, owner of the upmarket Chez Gabriela Studio, was arrested today in front of her clients, faces 25 years in prison if convicted. In addition to the credit card fraud allegations, Perez is also accused other crimes including pick-pocketing and social security fraud. Is this chick crazy?
Perez, whose self proclaimed “temple of beauty” salon is seemingly frequent stop for a number of youth-seeking celebs, including several not named in the court filing like Penelope Cruz, Brad Pitt, Halle Berry, Angelina Jolie and surprisingly Val Kilmer, is accused of bilking Aniston and others of hundreds of thousands in false charges over a two year period.
I’m curious how Maria Perez thought she would never get caught. Poor Liv Tyler must have fainted when she received her credit card bill. I wonder how much she stole from Jennifer Aniston? Astrochicks thinks it’s weird how trusting Hollywood stars can be. Stay tuned!
