The I GOT ROBBED IN BARCELONA face Bag stolen. Passport stolen. Wallet stolen. $60K in watches stolen @meesterstore. …How? All over me getting a damn coffee for the team in #Starbucksbarcelona …. I literally look away for one second and my backpack is gone from the chair. Nobody saw anything. Still can’t believe it happened. But hey, it’s just possessions, right? As sad as this is it really challenges my emotions while I feel anger and shock. Like at least I wish I saw the coward and could catch the thief. How could somebody do this and why did I not see this? I’m always on the look out for danger and I’ve never been robbed from my personal belongings like this before. I worked hard to afford this stuff and had them with me for the shoot today. I remember life happens for me, not to me. When @bobmarley was asked ‘are you a rich man, do you have a lot of possessions?’ He replied: “I don’t have that kind of richness in life, my richness is life.” And it’s really so true…it hit me… the experience of traveling is ultimately what matters, not a damn #louisvuitton bag or #audemarspiguet and #breitling watch. I hope the thief enjoys his/her catch of the day. After this day, I saw this event with an outside eye, from another perspective. I realized how things are so easy to lose. It’s crazy when you think that everything you own can disappear in a second. I thought more about it and I realized how it’s the same thing with people you love. Like my best friend who passed away. You can lose anything anytime. Finally, it was so clear in my mind. Life’s all about enjoying and appreciating every single moment that comes your way. Just live in the now and enjoy everything while you can. That way, you will never be sad or mad if you lose it someday. I lost 60K and a passport this day, but I still have my coffee moment in Barcelona. Nobody takes that away from me. Thank you all for your sweet messages. It means a lot as this was (and still is) a hard reality to swallow. Love you guys.

The 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days cast member Jesse Meester went to get his photographer and others some Starbuck’s coffee and took his eye off his bag for only a moment. He said he would be the one in jail if he’d caught the thief.
He suspects someone may have followed him. And, it seems the police think he could have been the target of a “professional organization” of thieves. He said he works hard for the money he makes. And, he is really hurt that someone came along and did that. Certainly, it will be interesting to see if there are any leads in the coming days.
In the aftermath, Jesse Meester thanked all his 90 Day Fiance fans and followers for their support during this time. He said the “sweet messages” from fans mean a lot to him. Interestingly, his trip to Barcelona was supposed to be a way to relax. He also hinted at an upcoming project a few days ago and some fans think he could be on a new season of The Bachelorette. But, it looks like this trip definitely took a turn.
Jesse Meester said he would likely go to the embassy because he needs his passport to get back to New York. Whether or not he gets any of his items back will definitely be something to watch out for – along with whether or not the thief is caught.
