What Happened

TMZ reported last week that a safe containing important valuables was stolen, and the theft was uncovered when someone close to Knowles-Lawson came by the property and noticed the safe missing. She was not home at the time of the theft.

It is still unknown how they obtained entry to the property, and as of reporting, it is unknown if there are leads on who is responsible.

According to reports, police are asking Knowles-Lawson’s neighbors for any information regarding the break-in and are analyzing surveillance video.

Other Problems at the House

The burglary is the second occasion in which Knowles-Lawson or someone close to her phoned the police to investigate an unusual event at the home.

On April 1, cops detained a man outside of what could be the same Los Angeles house after he allegedly caused minor damage to her mailbox by hurling rocks.

The suspect was apparently acting strangely and was placed under psychiatric hold.

There were no injuries, and Knowles-Lawson and her 76-year-old husband, actor Richard Lawson, chose not to press charges or submit a complaint at the time.

There is limited information available about the exact location of Knowles’ mansion, but what is known is that it is in Hollywood Hills. The residence is a 4263-square-foot property that she bought for $4.4 million. It consists of four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a swimming pool, and a tennis court.

In addition to her Hollywood Hills home, Knowles-Lawson, whose net worth is estimated at $20 million, also owns a mansion in Houston, which she received as a gift from Beyoncé. Beyoncé spent more than $6 million on an exquisite Houston, Texas, house for her mother in 2011.

Another Stolen Safe

It seems Knowles-Lawson’s house was not the only celebrity recently hit in the L.A. area. “Snowfall” actor Damson Idris’ home was also robbed just before hers, Radar reports. And just like with the Knowles-Lawson theft, thieves took his safe. Thieves in the July 3 robbery, however, only got away with about $500 worth of items in the safe.
