LAPD officers answered a call reporting a possible crime from the Highland Park neighborhood in Los Angeles at approximately 9:15 pm according to ABC 7.

The home evidently belongs to Maggie Baird and Patrick O’Connell who are Eilish’s parents. It’s unknown if anything is missing from the two-bedroom residence but there were no injuries reported.

ABC7 correspondent Chris Cristi noted that LAPD robbery detectives are investigating the incident. Evidently, the unnamed suspect was wearing dark clothing and a black mask. He reportedly jumped a fence on the property to gain access to the home. The man was apprehended about a block from the home by police during a sweep. Video footage shared on the Citizens app of the suspect’s arrest shows a man being handcuffed and detained by LAPD officers.

An unnamed source told TMZ that a housekeeper, who wasn’t there at the time, contacted police after receiving an alert on an electronic device about a possible intruder.

Eilish had to hire a security guard in 2019 after she was doxxed online, exposing her address according to PageSix. The guard slept in her living room as a group of fans showed up at her home.

It was really traumatizing,” she told Rolling Stone in an interview. “I completely don’t feel safe in my house anymore, which sucks. I love my house.”

“I’ve loved attention my whole life but I don’t think anyone knows what fame actually is. Because if I did want to be famous it wasn’t this kind,” Eilish candidly remarked.

Eilish and her producer brother Finneas O’Connell grew up in the home. Despite being worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $53 million, the 21-year-old says she still lives with her parents, according to Forbes.

The home is worth an estimated $800,000. Eilish’s brother noted that their parents sleep on a futon in the living room so each of the children can have their own bedroom.

The brother and sister recorded most of Eilish’s first album, “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” in a makeshift recording studio in O’Connell’s bedroom

According to ABC7, the break-in left neighbors concerned.

“Well, my aunt actually came running to me telling me that Billie Eilish’s house was getting burglarized and we quickly ran over here because we live down the street so we’re pretty worried about what was happening,” neighbor Jaslyn Portillo told the media outlet.

As crime skyrockets in the City of Angels, celebrities are no longer safe as they once were there. In fact, many are targeted these days.

An increasing number of wealthy residents and celebrities are obtaining private security because they are in “fear of their life,” according to Fox News.
