Hairstylist charged with stealing actor Kevin Costner's laptop

An upscale hairstylist has been charged with stealing actor Kevin Costner's laptop computer, which had private photos of the actor's wedding.

Pascal Bensimon, 44, surrendered to Pitkin County sheriff's officials this week after a 14-month investigation. He was charged with felony theft charge and freed on $5,000 (Ђ4,160) bond. He is due in court Monday.

The computer contained private photos of Costner's 2004 &to=http://english.pravda.ru/main/18/90/360/16279_ring.html' target=_blank>wedding to Christine Baumgartner, which took place at his Aspen-area ranch.

But Bensimon tells the Aspen Daily News that someone put drugs into his drink at the wedding, and that he never stole Costner's Apple Powerbook G-4 or a digital camera.

Bensimon, who has a salon in the posh ski town of Aspen, had been hired to style hair for some of the wedding guests.

The Aspen Times says Bensimon was born in Morocco, and raised in Israel and France. He reportedly worked in salons in Paris, New York and Atlanta before moving to Aspen last month.
