We are happy to report that Tina Knowles Lawson is well after burglars invaded her home then dashed with jewels and over $1 million in cash.

According to police, Knowles Lawson’s Los Angeles estate was robbed when intruders snuck in and left with her entire vault. The break-in was reported to take place sometime last week after a member of her camp went to her home and found that her safe was missing.

Sources also say Queen Bey’s mother was not home when the incident occurred and it is unclear how the thieves were able to enter her home.

An investigation is currently underway. No surveillance video has emerged and neighbors have been unable to provide any leads.

It was in April when a perpetrator was arrested outside the 69-year-old Texas native’s home after the suspect was accused of throwing rocks at her mailbox, therefore damaging it.  

The news comes on the heels of a string of celebrity burglaries in recent years. In 2018, three teenagers were accused of burglarizing the homes of over 20 celebrities, including Rihanna, Christina Milian and Yasiel Puig. Police say the teens were able to track the celebs’ movements through social media, then targeted their homes stealing money, jewelry, designer bags and other high-priced items worth millions of dollars.

Two years before, Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint at the No Address Hotel during Paris Fashion Week, when masked robbers stole millions of dollars worth of jewelry, including a $4 million ring.

“They ask for money. I said I don’t have any money,” she recalled of the harrowing experience one year after the incident. “They dragged me out onto the hallway on top of the stairs. That’s when I saw the gun clear, like clear as day. I was kind of looking at the gun, looking down back at the stairs.”

She continued: “I was like; ‘I have a split second in my mind to make this quick decision,'” she continued. “Am I going to run down the stairs and either be shot in the back? It makes me so upset to think about it. Either they’re going to shoot me in the back, or if I make it and they don’t, if the elevator does not open in time, or the stairs are locked, then, like, I’m f*cked. There’s no way out.”
