Over the holiday period, Lana Del Rey tweeted a plea for the return of irreplaceable family mementos that were stolen from her.
“Hoping everyone had a great holiday — wanted to make a quick announcement,” her statement began.
The singer went on to share that “family mementos including [her] sister’s entire retrospective” were taken from her, although she didn’t specify any details of where the robbery took place, or what other items were stolen.
“I’d love to encourage whoever took it to please consider sending any of the scans of her previous work back to us for a no questions asked reward,” Lana continued, pleading: “The work we lost can’t be reproduced and exists nowhere but where it was.”

Lana’s sister is photographer Chuck Grant, and the sisters have worked together many times over the course of Lana’s career. On Chuck’s photography website, she states that she shoots her images primarily on film, which would explain why her work would be irreplaceable if the negatives were stolen.
Chuck Grant is often the photographer behind Lana’s most iconic images, having shot most of her album covers, as well as the 14-minute recently released film clip that accompanies Lana’s latest album, Norman F**king Rockwell.
