Cher Wig Stolen From Collection

Cher’s production company has reported the theft of a wig valued at $8,000 to $10,000, apparently stolen from the singer’s collection of tresses during a sold-out concert stop.

“The wig is described as half-black and half-teal, and it was braided,” said Christie Collins, a police spokeswoman.

While police did not release the wig’s value, they have classified the case as a grand larceny – meaning the value exceeds $200.

Cher’s tour manager estimated the value between $8,000 and $10,000, said Larry W. Wilson Jr., general manager of the Richmond Coliseum, where the “Living Proof – Farewell Tour 2003” made a stop Feb. 25.

Cher took off the wig after singing “All Or Nothing” and put it back in a room where her other wigs were stored, Collins said.

“We’re still not 100 percent sure the wig was stolen out of our facility,” he said.
