Comedian Kevin Hart’s Los Angeles home was robbed over the weekend. The looters stole about $500,000 worth of personal belongings even though the home was well equipped with security devices.
Police tell People magazine that clothes, watches and jewelry were included in the stolen merchandise. No one was home when the robbers broke in, and they likely entered the home through the back door. Officials are currently reviewing security footage from surveillance cameras located inside the Hart home and out. They are looking into possible leads.
The stand-up comic posted a response to the incident on his Instagram page today. Citing his late mother Nancy Hart as his angel, the actor tells fans to “always put things in perspective.”
He continues, “Material items can be taken away at any time but a positive outlook and understanding of life and what’s really important can never be compromised in the Hart Household…. I have what I value the most which [are] my family and my health.”

The star of the upcoming “Central Intelligence” film is not the first celebrity who has fallen victim to a home robbery. Chris Brown’s house was broken into twice last year. First, Brown found a nude 21-year-old woman in his kitchen who wrote “I love you” on the kitchen counter and threw away his daughter Royalty’s toys. Then, last July the singer’s aunt was held hostage at gunpoint and he believed friends stole the $50,000 in cash he received for an appearance, according to Hollywood Life.
Similarly, TMZ reported in December that Big Sean believed his home robbery was an inside job since the burglars seemed familiar with the house’s layout. The rapper was away in Dubai when looters stole $150,000 in jewelry along with some unreleased music from the mini-vault.
