Valentino filed a report with police after Lady Gaga’s Golden Globes dress went missing.
The singer and actress wore the custom-made periwinkle gown by the Italian fashion house in January, teaming her one-of-a-kind dress with $5 million (£3.9 million) worth of Tiffany & Co. diamonds and dyeing her platinum blonde hair a matching shade of blue.
However, she allegedly left the dress in her room at The Beverly Hilton hotel, where the awards show was held, according to a maid who reportedly discovered the dress and handed it into the lost and found department at the luxury venue.
The employee, named Sara Corea, has since put the dress up for auction via Nate D. Sanders Auctions, after the hotel handed the Valentino dress back to Corea because nobody had come forward to claim it.
Now, a spokesperson for the Beverly Hills Police Department has told Entertainment Tonight that the luxury fashion house had in fact filed a police report notifying them that the gown had gone missing following the 2019 Golden Globes.
They added that Gaga had not filed a report and Corea and Valentino are resolving the matter privately.
“It was determined that no crime had taken place. The police do not have an active criminal investigation. The matter is being resolved between the concerned parties,” a statement from the BHPD read.
Gaga wore the gown when she scooped the Best Original Song – Motion Picture prize for Shallow – her duet with Bradley Cooper from the hit movie A Star Is Born.
The dress is currently available to bidders with a minimum bid of $8,000 (£6,230), and auction manager Michael Kirk says the sale will still go ahead on Thursday.
“We take provenance very seriously and do due diligence on all items we take on consignment, including consulting our attorneys when necessary,” he added.

Jameela Jamil has been praised by fans for wearing jeans under her dress at the 2019 Golden Globes.
The British actress stepped out at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday night (06Jan19) for the awards bash, where her TV show The Good Place, in which she plays Tahani Al-Jamil, was nominated for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy.
Jameela looked gorgeous in a coral-coloured Monique Lhuillier ballgown with matching earrings from Ricardo Basta Fine Jewelry, but shortly before she hit the red carpet, she took to Twitter to post a video of the denim she was sporting underneath.
“An experienced woman wears jeans under her Golden Globes gown because it’s forking COLD,” she captioned the clip, which showed her giving fans a glimpse of her blue skinny jeans.
While on her Instagram Stories she shared a similar video and added: “Wearing jeans under my gown because I refuse to be cold for fashion.” She added in a chat with USA Today: “I don’t believe in suffering for fashion. It’s going to be cold later tonight and we’re going to be out all night until the early hours. I would like to be comfortable.”
Accordingly, a number of Jameela’s online fans were impressed by her clever fashion trick.
“Just when I thought I couldn’t love you any forking more,” one user wrote, while another commented, “Jeans are so formal. I’d be doing cozy fleece with an elastic waistband!!
And a third added: “I’ve worn thermals under a tux before. No judgement here.”
In addition to her ensemble, Jameela carried a black clutch purse with Time’s Up ribbon attached as means of showing her support for the movement founded by Hollywood celebrities as means of fighting against sexual harassment.
“Celebrating @timesupnow effort to double the amount of women and minorities at the helm of Hollywood and the height of all women industries,” the 32-year-old wrote alongside a snap of her purse on her Instagram Stories.
