Alanis Morissette's Brentwood home was allegedly burgled by unknown thieves who stole $2 million worth of jewelry. TMZ reports that the alleged burglary happened last Thursday at a time when the singer was not home. Morissette lives in the home with her husband, musician Mario "Souleye" Treadway, and their two children.

This theft comes less than a month after the singer's former business manager, Jonathan Todd Schwartz, admitted in court that he stole over $6 million from Morissette and other clients. Schwartz, according to the New York Times, was an employee at a company that helped people manage their financial assets. He admitted that he had removed $4.8 million from Morissette's various accounts from 2010 to 2014 without telling her.

Morissette occasionally posted photos of her jewelry to her Instagram account, and indicated that she had been collecting various pieces over the last several years.

Despite all of her recent bad luck, however, she appears to be in good spirits.
