The reality TV star, 20, lost £10,000 and designer clothes including a Hermes tan belt, a pair of orange Ugg boots and an Alexander McQueen T-shirt, reports The Sun.
Essex is currently in the Costa Del Sol with girlfriend Sam Faiers and the rest of the ITV2's show cast, celebrating their successful BAFTA Award-winning second series.
The club promoter was left with nothing after the robbery other than the clothes he was wearing. His manager is apparently heading out to join him on the island with more clothes and cash.
"Joey thinks he was targeted because they knew about him being on TV and thought he'd have a lot of valuables and money," said a source.
