Ex-child star Nick Prugo (Norgo) increased his net worth to more than $372,000 after subsequent robberies.

He was a member of the Bling Ring, a gang of thieves in Calabasas, California.

The American native convicted criminal and his gang members robbed the houses of celebrities in 2008 and 2009 of an estimated USD3 million in cash, jewellery, and possessions.

In the nearly ten years following the release of Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, in which Emma Watson and Taissa Farmiga played teenage burglars who broke into celebrities' houses in the late aughts, Channel 4 is delving into the real-life events with its newest docuseries.

Nick is now a part of a crew member of the 2022 three-part mini-documentary series with access to the criminal organization that carried out the burglary.

According to a report published by Celebs Week, the former convicted criminal Nick Prugo has an estimated net worth of USD 372 thousand.

Although most of the assets earned through robbery were spent or confiscated by law enforcement, Nick has managed to gather a modest wealth for himself. His earnings and investments are expected to rise by this year with his newfound career in show business.

He runs an online business selling home essentials and everyday gadgets on Amazon. He and his husband, Per Norgo, run an Instagram business, Porgo Essentials, that sells home goods. The couple uses social media platforms like Instagram to reach out to potential customers for their business.

After landing a small role in the 2003 TV quasi-documentary Little Lost Souls: Children Possessed, he initially intended to pursue a career in acting. However, he gave up acting while still in school and made friends with Rachel Lee, who would later become the leader of the Bling Ring. Rachel Lee, who initially bonded with Nick over their interest in fashion and social media, would later become the ringleader of the Bling Ring.

Early Life

Nick grew up in Los Angeles and studied for a few years at Calabasas High School before he was expelled for excessive absent records. After the expulsion from the Calabasas, he transferred to Indian Hills High School. In 2003, he landed his first role as a child actor to play a character, Kenny, in Little Lost Souls: Children Possessed. The movie was about the exorcism of children whose parents believed them to be possessed by the devil.

During his time at Indian Hills High School, Nick befriended Rachel and made friends with other members who would later become the Bling Ring members. He soon became hooked up in nightlife, enjoyed the intoxication of drugs, and began stealing from his parents. 

Bling Ring's Robbery Timeline: Nick Prugo Narrates The Story

In a new documentary that aired on Channel 4, the leader of the Bling Ling gang, who was responsible for stealing $3 million from the homes of celebrities such as Paris Hilton and Orlando Bloom, stated that he "never in his wildest dreams" thought heists would "reach the levels of criminality it did."

Nick Prugo gained notoriety aged 18 for masterminding a series of celebrity home robberies by Calabasas teens.

Total Seven Members

Initially, the robbery gang started with only Nick Prugo and Rachel Lee. The two began small by stealing cars in affluent neighbourhoods before moving on to bigger targets.

Eventually, they started recruiting more people to get involved, and reportedly there were seven total teenagers and young adults who helped commit the crime.

However, one particular member, Neiers, claims that Lee began it all. Apart from Nick Prugo and Rachel Lee, Neiers, Courtney Ames, Diana Tamayo, Johnny Ajar, and Roy Lopez Jr. were the seven members who robbed celebrities' homes at one point during the crime spree.

Eight Celebrities Reported Their Home Were Robbed

The first celebrity property that Prugo and Lee went after was that of Paris Hilton. They obtained Hilton's address and, with the help of gossip websites such as Perez Hilton, determined the times when Hilton would be absent from her home. Prugo and Lee successfully stole items worth thousands of dollars on their first attempt because of the information they gleaned from using Google Earth to plan the most direct route to Hilton's home.

Audrina Patridge, Orlando Bloom, Miranda Kerr, Rachel Bilson, Brian Austen Green, Megan Fox, and Lindsay Lohan were some of the other celebrities that were victims of theft at the hands of the Bling Ring.

Repeated Bulgary At Same Celebrity Home

Apparently, stealing once was not enough for the robber gang Bling Ring; going through the robbery details on Wikipedia, it appears that stealing from certain celebrities just once wasn't enough for the Bling Ring since they stole from them many times.

The group attempted to break into Rachel Bilson's home between three and six times and Hilton's home on multiple occasions. Because Lee and Prugo took so many garments and accessories from Bilson's house, they were forced to sell a good portion of them on the boardwalk at Venice Beach. They did not have enough space to retain everything for themselves.

The A24 Production Made It Seem Like Alexis Neiers Was The Mastermind Behind The Bling Ring

A24 production company released a movie based on the teen burglars titled The Bling Ring. The film stars Israel Broussard as Prugo and Emma Watson as Neiers. Neiers is portrayed as the brains behind the burglaries in the movie; however, both Neiers and Prugo refute that she was the one who initially organized the gang. The only thing that got Neiers involved in the crime spree was when Prugo asked her on a heist with him.

Nevertheless, Alexis was convicted and sentenced to serve time in prison. In a wild coincidence, she unexpectedly found herself in the same cell block as one of her victims. Neiers boasted in an interview with E! Online about occupying the same area as one of her victims. Lohan was placed in the same jail block as Neiers just before his term concluded.
