Danielle Steel's Former Assistant Swipes $400K!

| Filed under: Busted!

Holy crap!

Kristy Watts, the former aide to Danielle Steel, stole $400,000 from the romance novelist.

Watts worked for Steel for 15 years, primarily performing financial and accounting duties. Apparently, Watts would deposit checks from Steel's account into her own personal accounts as well as using the writer's credit cards for her own purchases.

She has pleaded guilty to wire fraud and tax evasion.

She will be sentenced on February 4th in San Francisco.

Yikes!

You'd think Danielle would have looked at the records once in awhile and noticed that money had gone missing.

We guess when you're making millions publishing steamy and successful novels, $400,000 doesn't seem like much!

    Boo-fucking-Hoo — a rich person is too rich to know they're being ripped off.

    That broad is too old for long hair.

    If she didn't miss the money, then she didn't need it in the first place.
    And her books are hardly classic literature.. In fact, they're horrible.

    Danielle Steele's alive?!?!

    All things considered, she did it right. She averaged about $27,000 a year in theft. Split that between credit cards and checks over 15 years. So… that's not too bad a plan. I wonder how she got caught.

    So,it's HER fault that some she trusted screwed her over? Are you that incredibly stupid? This bitch worked for her for 15 years,Danielle trusted this scum bag! Holy shit,imagine that?

    Two things: PEREZ'S INTERNS WRITE THIS SITE, NOT PEREZ HIMSELF SO WHEN PEOPLE ADDRESS HIM IN THEIR COMMENTS, IT'S A WASTE OF WRITING. Second: While Steele's books are mundane and predictable - hardly MIT material - theft is theft and nobody deserves being ripped off. She visits The Gap on Fisherman's Wharf, where my friends work in San Francisco, all the time and they say she and her daughter are super friendly.

    I thought the same thing. A woman this old looks terrible with long hair, just doesn't fit the face.

    She trusted this bitch. 15 years is a long time. That person was considered family. Given such an important task as handling the finances requires much faith. I hope she goes down. Fucking cheating accounting whore!

    One of the worst writers in recent history, she should pay money to anyone dumb enough to read one of her books.
