Jean-Claude Van Damme unwittingly aids in jewelry heist

Jean-Claude Van Damme seemed to be an accessory to a crime through no fault of his own… and without even knowing it.

Earlier this week, the action star was reportedly visiting an eye wear store in Paris. Unbeknownst to Jean-Claude, at the same time he was at the optician, a crook was robbing a nearby jeweler, to the tune of about $3.5 million in jewels.

This One-Time Jewelry Faux Pas Is Now A Massive Trend

Hot take: There isn’t a fashion rule out there that wasn’t meant to be broken. No navy and black together? Psssh. Not wearing certain cuts because of your height, age, and/or body type? Puh-lease.
