John Mayer’s new home robbed of over six figures worth of property

He’s definitely never going to be on my “celebrities I’d like to date” list, but I will admit that back in 2001, I had John Mayer’s song “No Such Thing” on repeat. As much as he is kind of terrible (especially if you’re a woman), it’s never cool when anyone gets robbed, so I do feel a twinge of sympathy for him right now.

The 40-year-old singer’s Beverly Hills home was burglarized on Friday. According to TMZ, the home was ransacked and the bad guys made off with between $100,000 to $200,000 of John’s personal possessions, including music equipment and some items from his large collection of watches.

The 7,000 square foot home, which John bought from fellow singer Adam Levine for an estimated $13.5 million, was reportedly broken into around noon on Friday. The cops were called after a security guard noticed a broken window. John, who has been touring with Dead and Company, was not home at the time of the incident.

Regardless of what you think of him, being robbed sucks. I speak from personal experience here. Let’s hope law enforcement can track down the burglars before they strike another victim.

    We were robbed a couple weeks ago when we were on vacation. Happens in every neighborhood here, doesn’t matter how fancyz Our city has a big divide of halves and have nots, so it’s expected, unfortunately.

    • Esmom says:

      Yup. My son’s g-f’s house was robbed a couple hours after they left on vacation. A neighbor noticed their front door wide open and called the police. They live not far from the expressway so robberies are happening more and more in that neighborhood, so perpetrators can make a quick getaway.

      Along with the material loss, robbery seems like such a personal invasion. Sucks for Mayer and anyone who’s a victim.

  2. Mariposa says:

    I’d never want to date him, but as a musician he’s the real deal. When he gets a song right, he REALLY gets it right (for example, In your atmosphere. I have cried so many times listening to that song!)

    Karma the bitch strikes again.

    • magnoliarose says:

      Agreed. I have no sympathy for him. Ever.

      • Bella DuPont says:

        Yup Magnolia…..there are lots of people I feel sorry for, in all sorts of ways, for all sorts of reasons, but this semi-racist, entitled, smug little man is just not really one of them.

    • Anners says:

      Haha! Glad I’m not the only snarky one. My first thought was “couldn’t have happened to a more perfect person”. Sorrynotsorry

      • Bella DuPont says:

        Lol….i know right?

        I didn’t really know much about him until I very recently stumbled across his hilariously obnoxious oxford union talk……then I looked a little bit more and….lmao.

        What a dick.

  4. RBC says:

    So there was a security guard but no alarm system? To ransack a home that size the intruders would have to be on the premises for more than a few minutes. Something about this robbery just seems “off”.

  5. OriginalLala says:

    I used to be into him (like wayy back in 2003) so much so that I dated a string of dudes who looked like him and were also musicians. Ah, to be 18 again lol.

    Being robbed sucks, it feels so invasive and like your sanctuary was violated.

  6. Crowhood says:

    Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy 👋🏼

  7. girl_ninja says:

    Ugh…what a violation. He’s quite wealth ( I think) so things can be replaced, but there’s probably sentiment attached to some items. I adored him, every album from Room for Squares till Continuum I bought. Then he David Duked it and I was done.

  8. Loopy says:

    Haha some of you are stone cold. But I really don’t get how these people in these lavish high tech security estates constantly get robbed. They should build vaults..unless it was an inside job.

    • Veronica S. says:

      The assumption people make is that criminals are stupid or desperate. After working retail for a substantial portion of my life, I can tell you that a lot of them are well organized, clever, and technologically proficient. Whatever security system you have, believe that there is somebody out there with the tech savvy to break it. Crime pays very well as long as you don’t get caught.

  9. Rescue Cat says:

    Reminds me of The Bling Ring.

  10. Veronica S. says:

    Eh, if he can afford a $13.5 million mansion, he can afford to replace the property. I’ll save my sympathy for the peasant classes.

  11. sara says:

    So this is probably why he’s been quiet on Instagram stories lately. His Instagram Stories feed is quite enjoyable and often very funny.

  12. Keira says:

    John’s house was *burglarized*, not *robbed*. The words are not interchangeable. “Robbed” means a person was held up with a threat to their body or their home was invaded and they were aware of it in real time; “burglarized” means they were asleep or out of the house and the burglar avoided them. They are two different crimes.

  13. Cantgoogleme says:

    I know this sounds awful, but I love seeing this guy go through hardship for some reason.

    My mom’s theory is that he staged the burglary for publicity and insurance money. Don’t know how he would have pulled it off exactly, but it’s the most interesting take yet.

  14. CityGirl says:

    I was robbed when I was about 20 years old. I never felt safe there again and had to move. It was so amazing to me because I had hardly nothing and they actually took stuff. But it was the breaking in part that did it for me. Ever since, I always live up in the air in a high rise.

  15. Mle428 says:

    My 2 year old loves John Mayer’s music, so he’s a regular on my Spotify playlist. It seemed like he really went of the rails, from an emotional perspective, when he was having significant vocal cord issues. Like, he was faced with a significant blow to his livelihood and it affected his behavior. I see it a lot, professionally, with people who suffer functional loss. It’s a seriously overlooked mental health issue, the grief that comes with functional loss.

  16. Originaluna says:

    Sucks. I still enjoy his music and there are no bounds to my love of continuum and battle studies. I swear he wrote “Edge of Desire” for me.
    I know he’s mostly a douche but he seems to be improving and in this case,besides being human filled with flaws, I don’t know of an actual crime he might have committed to make me stop enjoying his music.
    And his guitar playing skills are.. unbelievable.

    I guess the good thing about this is that he was not harmed. Everything else is replaceable.

    • AMA1977 says:

      “Room for Squares” spoke to me in a very profound way when it came out; I was having the sort of struggles personally that the songs dealt with between the ages of 23-25, and I still have a lot of affection for that album (yes, album, I’m an old!) that residually transfers to JM, even though I objectively know that he’s a douche at best.

      All that to say…I still would. Shamefully, but I would.

      I’ll see myself out.

      • Muddy says:

        That made me laugh out loud. Bravo.

      • Originaluna says:

        YES room for squares as well. He has a great repertoire. No doubt.
        I wouldn’t but i have a friend who was a die hard fan for a long time. But again, she ships johnny depp so i dont trust her taste levels.

    Sorry to hear this, I love his music, I love his dancing in this video. Such a great musical talent.
