Rapper Kanye West is the latest victim of burglary as his house in L.A. was broken into Wednesday afternoon.
TMZ reports that the rapper was not home at the time of the break-in because he is in Birmingham, England on tour. According to the site, a friend close to the rapper found the home broken into and alerted authorities. It is uncertain what the thieves made off with, but some of the “Stronger” singer's possessions were seen lying outside the home.
Kanye’s day in the media began early when headlines exploded when a certain photo that resembled girlfriend Kim Kardashian was posted on Twitter. The nudie photo was later laughed off when porn star Amia Miley claimed that it was her booty in the photograph. A rep for West also told MTV, “This phantom tweet never occurred on his account. This is obviously the desperate, sad act of someone seeking to gain media exposure by exploiting Kanye's notoriety. Kanye doesn't even know this person, has never seen this picture, and hasn't been on his Twitter account for a day."
American Idol winner Phillip Phillips’ parents’ Georgia pawn shop was also broken into this week. Thieves made out with $4,000 in handguns, jewelry, TVs, antique coins as well as any money in drawer.
