The Shade Room explores…
Things started when “PrettyLo” sent Munroe a friend request on social media. On November 4, “PrettyLo” shows off her date with a friend wearing red hair.
Everything seemed normal, they were chatting and laughing. Munroe says she went to show “PrettyLo” where the bathroom was when the episode ended, and her friend stayed behind.

He said it happened in seconds while he was cleaning his work area. Surveillance video shows “PrettyLo” standing in the doorway as her friend fumbles with her bag, before placing it on the couch next to Munroe’s bag.
Then the friend can be seen taking money out of his wallet and putting it in his wallet.
“For a friend who didn’t have her makeup done, she asked me like ‘do you have anything to do after? I want to do my makeup.’ I told him ‘yeah, I’m here all day.’ Find out after taking the money,” Munroe said.
Munroe says she didn’t even know her money had been stolen until she went grocery shopping that day with snacks.
She reportedly texted “PrettyLo” immediately.

“I told him, ‘Yes, your friend stole money from my wallet, can you please give it back before I call the police?”
Munroe goes on to say that “PrettyLo” told her that it doesn’t look like her friend stole money, but it looks like she stole lipgloss from her purse.
He also said that he remained on good terms with the two, as he was not sure whether “PrettyLo” was part of the conspiracy or not.
But when he reviewed the CCTV footage, he saw “PrettyLo” standing at the door, as if chasing his friend.
When she didn’t receive her money, Munroe posted the video on her social media page, and that’s how she learned “PrettyLo’s” real name – Alexia Spears.

“Yeah, suck it up, you’re a makeup artist.” You’ll get it back if you get it,” PrettyLo said in the video.
Munroe said The Shade Room that after watching the video, he felt like there was nothing else he could do: “they were already laughing at me in front of me (about it).”
The Shade Room reached out to “PrettyLo,” who said she had nothing to do with the stolen money.
“They made it look like I was the one who took it, but I was clearly visible in the video and I’m not taking money or anything,” he said.
The client said he would return the money, but he did not apologize
He said that the friend eventually admitted to stealing the money, adding that he would return the money because “he is not that type of person.”
However, he stopped apologizing. For now, Munroe says he’s leaning on his faith and knows he’ll get the money, saying “what goes around, comes around.”
