There have been several robberies of celebrities in California lately. Earlier this year, singer Alanis Morissette, Lakers star Nick Young, and even hip-hop artist Nicki Minaj all had their homes robbed. Well, you can now add a new celebrity to that list — MMA superstar Ronda Rousey is the latest big name to lose her valuables to thieves.

Rousey disclosed that her home had been robbed when she appeared on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” this week. Rousey told the hosts that the Venice, California, home she shares with her fiance, fellow MMA fighter Travis Browne, had been broken into.
According to Yahoo, the two MMA stars were in New Zealand on vacation when they found out their home had been invaded.
“(The crooks) stole my Olympic rings, stole my guns, stole all my precious jewelry, every headphone in the house, credit cards,” Rousey said.
Instead of letting the local police handle the investigation, Rousey and Browne looked at their security tapes and discovered that a group of young adults with skateboards had approached their door in the dark. According to Rousey, they live next to a “famous skatepark.”
“We saw that they were a bunch of kids with skateboards,” Rousey said. “So my man’s 6-7 like 260 (pounds). He like beelined it straight to the skateboard park, finds the guys right away. He’s smart enough not to (hit them), we’ll get sued pretty hard, but he found the police right then and they caught them.”
Two of the suspects were identified by TMZ as 21-year-old Zhamila Bolat and 20-year-old Alim Young. Both of the suspects were arrested at the scene but neither was charged.
As if finding your house has been robbed isn’t bad enough, Rousey said: “Someone had been squatting in my house for like three days, sleeping in my bed.”
The MMA champion had some choice words for the robbers and squatters. “They knew it was my house. There’s no way you can’t not know it’s my house. What little punks.”
It’s probably safe to say that if the suspects had been found inside the home when the two MMA fighters arrived home, this story would have had a much different ending.
