Pop singer George Michaelís north London home was burgled while the pop singer was in Los Angeles last week, police sources have revealed. Thieves ransacked the £3 million Hampstead mansion and made off with a number of valuables before using Georgeís Aston Martin as a getaway car.
Property loss and damage have been estimated at upwards of £200,000, including the missing £80,000 Aston Martin DB7. Police have refused to confirm newspaper reports that paintings, jewellery and designer clothes were among the items stolen.
Neither the 38-year-old singer nor his spokesman were available for comment on the incident. ďWe are still awaiting a formal statement from the victim,Ē said a spokeswoman from Scotland Yard. ďThere have been no arrests and inquiries are continuing.Ē
George Michaelís new single, Freeek is set for release on March 18 and his new album is due to come out in October.
