HOLLYWOOD HILLS—Rapper and performing artist Megan Thee Stallion’s home was robbed of a large amount of assets while she was away in New York preparing to perform on SNL.
On Thursday, October 13, two men were caught on camera shattering a glass door in the back of the home making their way into the rapper’s bedroom. The pair stole an estimated $300,000 to $400,000 in jewelry, cash, and electronics before fleeing the scene. The suspects were wearing hoodies and gloves. There have not been any arrests made in the case which is currently being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department.
Authorities are reviewing surveillance footage from rapper’s home and her neighbors’ security footage as well.
Megan Thee Stallion wrote on Twitter shortly after she was notified of the robbery that, “Material things can be replaced but I’m glad everyone is safe.” She added, “Hotties I’m really sorry but after SNL I really gotta take a break I’m so tired, physically and emotionally.”
The rapper is one of the many celebrities who have fallen victim to theft in the Los Angeles area.
Megan Thee Stallion, whose real name is Megan Pete, was born in Houston, Texas and was discovered on social media platforms after videos of her freestyling became popular. She was signed to 300 Entertainment in 2018 where she released “Fever” in 2019 and “Suga” in 2020. Both singles made it to the top ten of the Billboard 200.
In her career, she has received several accolades, including six BET Awards, five BET Hip Hop Awards, four American Music Awards, two MTV Video Music Awards, a Billboard Women in Music Award, and three Grammy Awards. At the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards, she became the second female rapper to win Best New Artist, after Lauryn Hill did so in 1999.
