Woman Breaks Into Drake's 'YOLO Estate', Drinks His Soda
Looks like another celebrity's Southern California home has been burglarized. Though, this time, the perpetrators didn't whisk away with $2 million in jewelry (like they did with Alanis Morissette) or a set of NBA championship rings (as with Derek Fisher).
The pilfered items in question? A can of soda and a water bottle. The celebrity victim? None other than Drake (a.k.a Aubrey Drake Graham). As reported at the L.A. Times, a woman had broken into Drake's home (dubbed the "YOLO Estate") up in Hidden Hills. She was in a locked room when Sheriff's deputies arrived at about 10:30 a.m. to respond to the call. Upon entering, the deputies discovered an opened can of soda and a water bottle in her possession. There was no evidence that she'd taken anything else, reports the Associated Press. The woman was later identified as 24-year-old Mesha Collins.
It's unknown if Drake was at home during the time of the incident.
Collins was arrested for entering a residence with intent to steal the victim's property. Her first court appearance has been set to Wednesday.
While the arrest was announced Tuesday, a spokesperson at the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station told LAist that the incident happened about three weeks prior. We could not confirm if the soda in question was, indeed, a Sprite:
And in case you weren't familiar with Hidden Hills, it's a gated community for the rich and famous. Residents include Kim and Kanye, Justin Bieber, and Miley Cyrus. If TMZ died and went to heaven, this would be it.
