Mariah Carey just joined the list of unlucky celebs who’ve been hit by theft in recent months. According to reports, thieves struck the singer’s LA home and stole $50,000 worth of possessions from her superstar-worthy closet in a middle-of-the-night burglary.
According to TMZ , which cited law enforcement sources, the criminal(s) entered the “Heartbreaker” singer’s mansion around 3am on Thursday, by using a ladder (which was found in the backyard) to reach and enter a window on an upper floor.
TMZ reports that although the burglar(s) tripped a silent alarm, Carey’s security personnel didn’t discover the break-in until about 6 or 7am.
Thankfully, the songstress wasn’t at home during the burglary, as she’s currently in New York. And while she owns a selection of jaw-dropping (and very valuable) pieces of jewelry, those items were apparently left untouched by the thieves. Instead, TMZ reports, the robber(s) made off with thousands of dollars’ worth of purses and sunglasses.
The police are now on the case, though it’s just one more in a string of celebrity burglaries that have occurred this year. Other stars who’ve been hit by thieves include Jason Derulo, Alanis Morissette, David Spade, Emmy Rossum, and Scott Disick.
The list also now includes Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, whose three cars were broken into and ransacked at their Bel Air mansion at around 4am this morning. According to TMZ, the burglar made off with an iPhone belonging to one of the couple’s staff members.
