Burglars ransacked the Los Angeles residence of rapper Nicki Minaj, damaging her personal property, and taking off with an estimated $200,000 worth of items during a recent break-in.

The thieves stole a sizable amount of jewelry and other items from the singer’s 11,500 square foot home and left the inside of the residence destroyed, with flipped furniture and other displaced objects spread around the house, according to TMZ.

In addition to stealing the items, someone allegedly vandalized other areas in her home, including breaking frames, smashing perfume bottles, and cutting up some of the star’s clothes.

Nicki Minaj wasn’t at home at the time of the robbery, and the incident was reported to police early this week.

Authorities are currently investigating the burglary and are searching for footage that might show the possible suspects.

Similarly, when Rihanna was playing a show in Australia, her Los Angeles home was broken into as burglars used a chair to smash into a sliding door. Fortunately, the alarm frightened the robbers away as they were only able to take a few items nearby.

Minaj is the latest star to fall victim to a high-priced break-in and burglary. Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in her Paris hotel last October, with the criminals stealing over $10 million worth of jewelry.

Even more recently, Soulja Boy’s Hollywood Hills home was robbed of over $20,000 worth of assets in January.
