Usher's home has been burglarized.The musician's $4.2m home in Los Angeles, which is currently for sale, was broken into in late March
Rapper Usher's $4.2m home was reported burglarized at the end of March. The burglars stole jewelry and cash worth $820,000 according to a report by The Blast.
Usher's wife Grace Miguel reported to the Los Angeles Police Department about the breaking-in when she arrived at the house and the housekeeper informed her about the crime. She, "discovered a footprint on the second floor, a handprint on the pillow in the lower floor, and the curtains to the lower floor window were open" as reported by the Blast.
The eight-time Grammy winner lost $20,000 cash which was on the nightstand, a ring, six watches of which the most expensive one cost $220,000 and a rose gold Jesus necklace worth $200,000. Miguel reported to the police saying she believed the thieves must have unlocked a window in the home during a recent open house since the house is on sale. She also said she had contacted the realtor for a list of people who had been to the open house and would turn it over to LA PD when she had it.
Miguel also said, when the housekeeper went to check the recording box where the security camera footage was stored, “she noticed that the recording box was missing and connecting wires were cut.” In an alleged report, Miguel said she believed the thieves had stolen the jewelry earlier in the week and then returned to get the security footage.
Usher is one among many celebrities like Kanye West, Miley Cyrus and Chris Brown who have been victims of such burglaries.
The case is currently under investigation.
