Things turned dark in the House of Deréon co-founder's life after thieves recently ransacked her Los Angeles-area estate. As revealed by TMZ, the entrepreneur's lavish home was invaded by criminals who made off with a portion of her wealth.

The harrowing incident occurred while the fashion designer was reportedly out of town, a window of opportunity the burglars exploited with little to no missteps. These crooks appeared devious experts as authorities were baffled about how they accessed Knowles' home.

The break-in time was also unclear, given the "Irreplaceable" singer's mother was not around when the thieves invaded. The 69-year-old was allegedly alerted about the burglary after an acquaintance visited the estate and discovered the misfortune on Wednesday, July 5.

The police were alerted about the invaders, who reportedly escaped with a safe filled with over $1 million in cash and jewelry. How these lawbreakers absconded with the vault of valuables remained uncertain; however, cops were diligently working to solve the mystery.

According to sources, authorities are searching for surveillance footage that might have caught the crime. They are also questioning Knowles' neighbors for information. Unfortunately, the efforts of law enforcers have not yielded any significant leads to date.

The "Talks with Mama Tina" host's home invasion came months after an unidentified man terrorized the media personality. The ACE Award recipient alerted authorities in April after discovering an uninvited guest at her Los Angeles-area estate.

What happened next came out of an action movie scene as the assailant bolted at the sight of the cops, running for his dear life. Fortunately, the chopper kept a close eye on the man and alerted the on-the-ground forces about his whereabouts.

A short foot pursuit occurred when authorities arrived at the offender's location, but the lawbreaker was successfully arrested. The man was taken into custody for causing a disturbance and damaging the Texas native's property.

However, because of the trespasser's alleged "erratic behavior," the suspect was placed on a 5150 psych hold. Despite causing minor damages to her mailbox, Knowles chose the high road and refused to press charges or file a report against the man.
