Police have arrested a man suspected of robbing Usher’s $4.2 million home back in March.
According to TMZ, the suspect burglarized a number of celebrity homes in Los Angeles, and was caught with over 2,000 items valued at more than $2 million. About $800,000 of that included property taken from Usher.
Some of the items stolen from Usher’s home include six watches, the most expensive of them being $220,000. A $200K Jesus piece and $20K in cash were also allegedly stolen.

Bobby said. “They want the title they gotta battle me.” As the self-dubbed “King of the Stage,” he added that this “battle” would have to go down on his territory—live on stage.”

Kelly an honorable mention as well. But of the three, Usher would be the only R&B icon to take the crown without needing to put up a fight. “That’s like my son,” he said. “He’s that good. I think he should battle, like, Chris Brown.”
“He’s not even recognizable,” Bobby said. “I don’t even know his music.”
