Reality TV girl jailed for Bloom home raid

An aspiring model and reality TV starlet has been jailed for breaking into the home of actor Orlando Bloom.

Alexis Neiers pleaded no contest to burglary and was sentenced to up to six months.

Neiers (18), a would-be model who appeared in the E! Entertainment channel reality show Pretty Wild, did a deal with prosecutors shortly before her trial was due to begin in Los Angeles.

Bloom, star of the Pirates Of The Caribbean and Lord Of The Rings film franchises, had been expected to give evidence.

Neiers was sentenced to three years of formal probation and six months in jail for the July break-in. She also agreed to stay away from Bloom.

She is among six people accused of targeting homes of celebrities such as Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan and stealing millions in jewellery, clothing and luxury goods.
