The musician's $4.2m home in Los Angeles, which is currently for sale, was broken into in late March. Thieves took off with $820,000 worth of jewelry and cash, according to a Tuesday report from The Blast.

The mansion was equipped with security cameras, but the thieves stole the tape from inside the camera too which will make it almost impossible to trace the criminals.
