- R&B singer Beyoncé had broken into three storage rooms. Items worth a million dollars were stolen.
R&B singer Beyoncé (39, “Halo”) was robbed. As the US portal “TMZ” reports, thieves struck twice within a week at the beginning of the month and cleared three of the singer’s rented storage rooms in Los Angeles. During their raid, the burglars stole items worth a million dollars (the equivalent of around 850,000 euros).
The storage rooms had been rented from Beyoncé’s production company, but they contained items belonging to the singer. Among other things, expensive handbags, clothes, children’s toys, and photos belonging to Beyoncé’s stylists are said to have been stolen. The local police are investigating the case. So far, however, no suspects have been arrested.
Beyoncé isn’t the first celebrity to experience something similar. At the end of January, strangers broke into a storage room belonging to pop singer Miley Cyrus (28, “Plastic Hearts”) and stole clothes, family photos, and other memorabilia from the singer.
The burglars came twice
The storage units are to be rented out to B.’s production company Parkwood Entertainment, but the stolen items apparently all belong to the singer. Sources told the Mirror that the intruders returned within a week and broke into three storage units in the same facility.
The thieves are said to have fled with handbags, children’s toys, and photos of Beyoncé’s stylist. Police officers told TMZ that the LAPD was investigating without arrest.
28 awards including the last Grammy
The news comes for the musician after a triumphant start to the month as she won a record-breaking number of Grammy Awards – Beyoncé’s collection of awards now stands at an impressive 28.
This sum makes Beyoncé the most distinguished woman in Grammy history, overtaking “Bluegrass” singer Alison Krauss. “I’m so honored, I’m so excited,” said Beyoncé when she received the award for best “R&B” performance in early March.
