Another celebrity has been victim to home invasions in the Los Angeles area. The rapping duo, Rae Sremmurd, unfortunately, had their San Fernando Valley home busted into at 4:30 Saturday morning. Swae Lee was not home at the time, however, Slim Jxmmi was.
TMZ reported that 4 armed robbers knocked on the front door of the home and once answered, attacked the security guard by pistol whipping him.
A source says that the men's faces were hidden with ski masks as they rushed into the home and demanded to be taken to the safe. Reports say that it is unclear what items were inside, but the robbers stole the entire safe and fled.
The news comes about just a few days after rapper Wiz Khalifa also fell victim to a home invasion. The Black and Yellow artist was fortunately not home at the time of the attempted robbery, however, a member of the Taylor Gang entourage was present.
Pop Star Online reports that two men wearing hoodies broke into the home around 4:45 AM. Wiz's friend who was house sitting heard the noise and when he went down to check, scared off the would-be burglars. No property was stolen, however, police are still investigating the incident.
Unfortunately, multiple groups are targeting celebrity homes in the area. Authorities were able to catch some would be burglars who had planned on targeting Demi Lovato's home when news broke that she'd be entering into a rehab facility. Law enforcement authorities arrested a group for unrelated crimes where they discovered through electronic communication, their latest scheme.
LAPD went ahead to position extra patrols around Lovato's home to keep it safe. Demi has since returned home and appears to be safe. The artist has suffered a rough past couple of months as we've witnessed her much-publicized overdose.
TMZ recently interviewed Brandon Johnson, the man who supplied the pop star with the "aftermarket pills" that caused her near death experience. The dealer claims that he had no idea the drugs were a bad batch that he picked up from Mexico and laced with fentanyl, which is the same drug that killed Prince and Lil Peep.
"I disclosed to her that these are not pharmaceutical. They're aftermarket pills. They're much stronger," he explained. "[Demi] understood fully and it's unfortunate what happened. I'm not here to hurt anybody. I care for her very much."
"When I was with her she was fine. When I showed up she was a little drunk, but nothing out of the ordinary," he continued. "When I left she'd fallen asleep. She'd passed out, but it was already 7 AM or 8 AM. I tucked her in."
