Rapper Nicki Minaj's LA mansion vandalised by burglars in £140,000 raid
Police are investigating a burglary at the home of rapper Nicki Minaj after items worth more than 175,000 dollars (£140,000) were stolen.
The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed the incident took place at Minaj's luxury mansion in Beverly Hills but the musician was not at home at the time.
An LAPD spokesman said: "It is still undetermined how burglars got inside the home.
"They took jewellery and other property totalling approximately 175,000 dollars."
No suspects have been identified yet and an investigation is continuing, the spokesman said.
The burglary took place between between November 24 and January 24, he added.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the mansion was vandalised during the raid, with furniture destroyed and some of Minaj's clothing cut up.
Minaj - who has scored 10 top 10 hits in the UK - has not commented on the burglary but shared a photo of herself on Instagram on Thursday, which she captioned: "Secret shoot."
A spokesman for Minaj could not be reached immediately.
