Seinfeld's ex victim of $US1.5m robbery

Associated Press Associated Press 21/07/2016

Thieves have broken into the New York City home of fashion designer Shoshanna Lonstein Gruss, who gained fame when she dated comic Jerry Seinfeld, and stole $US1.5 million ($A2.01 million) worth of jewellery.

Shoshanna Lonstein Gruss tells the New York Post she is heartbroken and feels "beyond violated" by the burglary.

The 41-year-old Gruss discovered the break-in on Tuesday when she returned to her Manhattan home from a weekend at the beach.

She says she lost "lots of sentimental stuff that can't be replaced".

Gruss and Seinfeld were involved in a four-year relationship that started in 1993 when she was 17 and he was 38.

Gruss went on to a career as a designer of swimsuits and dresses.

She married Round Hill Music chief Joshua Gruss in 2003. They divorced in 2014.
