“NeNe’s bridesmaid was at the store Friday night and paid for the Rolex and ring and left about 15 minutes before the robbery,” a source close to the situation told

“She could have been there when the robbery happened!”

Sgt. Greg Lyons of the Atlanta PA told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that burglars smashed into the story and in 30 seconds stole an estimated $500,000 worth of watched.

While the star studded wedding went off without a hitch, the source said that the jewelry store quickly gave them a replacement ring and watch for the ceremony just in the nick of time.

“NeNe was really upset about what happened, but the jewelry store took care of everything,” they said.

Police are working to review surveillance video to help identify the thieves.
