Drake's Home Burglarized, Suspect Arrested
Drake was the victim of a home burglary.
A man allegedly tried to break into the rapper’s Los Angeles mansion on Thursday night. According to TMZ, Drake’s security called the police after seeing an unknown man leaving the house carrying something.
The suspect was gone by the time cops arrived and a search of the neighborhood ensued. Just a few hours later, a man who matched the suspect’s description was seen walking down the street.
Cops arrested the man who was reportedly carrying an item, which is believed to have been taken from Drake’s Beverly Crest home.
Drake purchased the 10-bedroom mega-mansion, which was once owned by Robbie Williams, for $75 million in an off-market deal last year.
The rapper was not at home at the time of the incident. Over the weekend, he performed two shows in New York at the Apollo Theater.
This isn’t the first time Drake has encountered an intruder. Back in July, a 23-year-old man was arrested at the same property and charged with misdemeanor trespassing after he claimed that Drake was his father and he was waiting for him to come home.
Prior to that in 2017, a woman was arrested and charged with breaking into his L.A. home. She later sued Drake for $4 billion, claiming that he defamed her and invaded her privacy by sharing private information on Instagram, but the defamation case was dismissed.
