Thieves broke into pop singer George Michael’s mansion and drove off with his $114,000 Aston Martin sports car and $140,000 in paintings, jewelry and clothing, according to a tabloid report Sunday. Scotland Yard officials declined to confirm the victim’s identity, but said they received a call about a stolen vehicle Wednesday morning. Officers went to a home in Hampstead, where the pop star’s $4.3 million home is located, and found it had been burglarized, a police spokesman said.
Police were still awaiting a statement from the victim and had made no arrests, he said.
The News of the World reported Sunday that Michael, who rarely uses his London home, was in Los Angeles at the time. Michael’s manager and publicist did not immediately return calls for comment Sunday.
