Last week, Sean Young got caught stealing two Apple laptops with video-editing software (total value: $12,000) on them from a production company in Queens, NY. Sean later claimed that she wasn’t stealing, she was just retrieving her own belongings. I was really hoping this situation would resolve itself during a visit to Judge Judy, because stolen property messiness is second only to doggy drama. But it’s not going to, because Page Six says that Sean has returned the laptops.
Last Thursday, Sean, along with her 30-year-old male accomplice, took the laptops from the offices of School of Old Productions, which hired her direct a film titled Charlie Boy. The film’s co-writer Greg Kritikos claimed he hired Sean, but then she was let go from the production. After she was sought for questioning by the NYPD, Sean claimed she planned on returning the two laptops she mistakenly took in exchange for the two laptops she believes belong to her.
School of Old has confirmed that the laptops came back yesterday, via Sean’s lawyer. That’s not to say there’s no more drama here. The new director of Charlie Boy, Timothy Hines, told Page Six over the weekend that he believes Sean was lying when she claimed she thought she’d grabbed the right laptops, and describes the situation as being like an “episode of the Twilight Zone.”
Still, the charges should be dropped sometime today, as Timothy Hines and the rest of the crew decided that Sean didn’t need to be punished, with Timothy adding: “We wish Sean the best of luck.” Greg Kritikos was just as diplomatic (with just a hint of shade), by saying:
“I’m glad we can finally put this behind us. I wish her all the best. Pray she gets the help she needs.”
Greg previously claimed that he hired Sean because they were both recovering alcoholics, and he saw it as a way to help get her life on track. Greg’s request that we pray she gets help sounds a bit like he’s implying things aren’t great for Sean right now. Which is kind of a duh-and-a-half when you remember she just got caught stealing laptops. But I think Greg is missing the silver lining here. If things are really bad with Sean, everyone is lucky she only took laptops and not became that disgruntled employee who took a dump in an HVAC vent.
