Libbie Mugrabi blows her own tunes at Hamptons hotspot

At least the thieves didn’t get her Balenciaga boombox.

When art-collecting socialite divorcee Libbie Mugrabi arrived at Almond in Bridgehampton over the weekend, we learned that she didn’t like the music for her weekly gay party and started blowing up her own instead.

Sources said Mugrabi, who was the victim of a high-fashion robbery in Europe last month, entered Almond with a Balenciaga “speaker bag”.

(For the fashion-challenged, the obscure bag is a new collaboration between Balenciaga and high-end audio line Bang & Olufsen. There are only 20 of them, and they can only be purchased at Balenciaga’s Paris store for around $13,000.)

A source told us about Mugrabi: “Libbie wasn’t happy with the disco music playing, so she packed her bag and played Kanye West’s song ‘Gold Digger'” instead.

The source said Mugrabi’s table began to “dance and sing along” when “the maitre d’ came forward and said to Libbie, ‘You have to put your bag out! It’s distracting from our own music.’ It was hilarious!”

A hotspot manager confirmed the incident to Vidak For Congress, but downplayed Mugrabi’s revelry, telling us: “They came in early, it wasn’t a party, they sat at a table — and she just started making music.”

The staffer added: “Guests said, ‘It’s too loud! We can’t hear each other,” and one of the managers went to Mugrabi to turn off her music.

According to the Robb Report, the speaker bag was unveiled last month at the fashion house’s couture show in Paris. It’s made of “solid aluminum” and “bead blasted, anodized and hand-polished”, and it even has an 18-hour battery life.

Last month, the Post reported that Mugrabi, who has her own line of accessories and is the ex of artificial scion David Mugrabi, was the victim of a robbery when thieves stole $500,000 worth of clothing and jewelry.

She said, “My entire jewelry box with $200,000 worth of jewelry… was gone. I bought a lot of things from Balenciaga in Paris… and those things were all gone.”

Apparently they overlooked the speaker bag!
