Mariah Carey Robbed of $50K After Thieves Hit Her LA Home
Mariah Carey has been robbed of $50,000 (£38,000) worth of accessories after thieves stormed her LA home on Thursday.
The burglars reportedly hit her home and made away with a number of expensive bags and sunglasses, though they decided to spare her valuable jewellery collection.
It is understood that no one was home at the time of the robbery, allowing the bandits to gain access into the house either through a window or door on an upper floor, as a ladder was found in the back yard.
The burglars were said to have tripped a silent alarm, but the singer’s security team didn’t discover the break-in until around 6 or 7am.
Metro reports that Mariah – who has six-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe with ex-husband Nick Cannon – was away in New York at the time the robbery occurred.
Mariah, 47, now joins a long list of stars whose Los Angeles homes have been burgled in recent months, with the likes of Jason Derulo, Scott Disick, Kendall Jenner, Alanis Morissette, David Spade and Emmy Rossum previously targeted.
“He told me every time someone asks, make sure they know it’s a gift from Floyd,’ she said.
Lucky for her, the Hermes bag is still intact as it wasn’t listed among items carted away in the heist.
Mariah also recently revealed her most treasured possession during a tour of her home in a recent video for Vogue magazine.
“I have Marilyn’s white piano upstairs in my living room and it’s from when she was a child and it’s my prized possession.
“I love the glamour. There’s just something about that specific era where it’s, like, magical.”
That prized possession also survived this robbery.
