The international jet set has abandoned St-Tropez this summer and gone to Ibiza, Greece’s Mykonos and other resorts with more fun and less crime.
Even Leonardo DiCaprio has cut back on his time there, canceling his star-studded environmental benefit gala usually held in late July.
“Without Leo’s party, a lot of the American richies who would fly in for it have gone elsewhere, too,” a local told me.
“Plus, folks are really tired of getting robbed here. Burglars hit the posh villas here nightly, drug you while you’re sleeping, and clean you out — Hermès bags, Vuitton luggage, jewelry, watches, cash. The super-rich are going other places where crime isn’t such a big problem.”
