Recently I wrote about the amusing anecdote JJ Abrams was telling about the script for Episode IX being stolen and leaked on eBay. I felt the story was potentially a lie because in one version JJ says it was taken from the actor’s home, but in another version JJ says it was taken from the actor’s hotel room.
However, Daisy Ridley went on GMA to plug TROS, and hinted that it was John Boyega who left the script under his bed, allowing it to be stolen.
But then Boyega went on GMA, and admitted it was him.

Boyega also admitted it on Twitter.

But the questions remain; did this occur at Boyega’s house, or did this occur at Boyega’s hotel room? What happened to the individual that stole it? Did they pay the eBayer to get the script back? How much? Were charges pressed?
