Less than a month after it was reported that Alanis Morissette’s ex-manager had been stealing millions from her, another person has stolen from her. Damn, Alanis is starting to become one of the bad-luck examples she sings about in Ironic. Did an old carnival machine put a curse on her or something?
TMZ says that last Thursday, burglars broke into Alanis’ home in Brentwood, CA and went to town on her jewelry box. While Alanis wasn’t named by name, a police spokesperson confirmed today that a safe containing $2 million worth of jewelry was taken during the robbery. They also said that the bandits made off with other items or property, although it’s unclear what those other items are. No one was home at the time of the break-in.
As for how the burglars knew that Alanis’ house contained $2 million in jewelry, who even knows. Maybe they used specially-trained diamond-sniffing dogs or something. Or maybe they just follow Alanis on Instagram and thought “Those look nice, I think I’ll take all of them.”
About two weeks ago, Nicki Minaj’s house was broken into and $200,000 worth of jewelry and property was stolen.
The most surprising thing about this story is that Alanis Morissette had a $2 million jewelry collection. Alanis does not seem like the type. She seems more like the kind of person whose favorite piece of jewelry is a hand-carved wooden pendant of Gaia hanging from a string of hemp. I’m honestly shocked that the burglars didn’t pop open that safe and find a note that says “The greatest treasure is love.”
