West, who found himself in headlines this week when he tweeted a photograph of a naked woman's rear end rumored to be that of Kim Kardashian, but which later turned out to be an old photograph of porn star Amia Miley, was targeted Wednesday by burglars, according to the TMZ report.
The LAPD received a call from one of Kanye's associates who discovered the robbery while the rapper was gone, according to TMZ.
TMZ reported that there was nothing obvious missing from the home after the burglary, said police, who fingerprinted the scene and were reportedly waiting for West to return to identify any belongings that may have been stolen.
A source also told TMZ that there was some evidence that the breaker-and-enterers dropped some of Kanye's personal belongings while leaving his Hollywood Hills home. The house is currently on the market for $3.995 million, as Kanye plans to move in with Kardashian soon.
Kanye West was reportedly on tour in Birmingham, England, at the time.
The reported burglary comes on the heels of an incident of alleged stealing from Kim K., in which the reality TV personality claims British Airways employees stole irreplaceable sunglasses and other items from her luggage on a return flight from Europe, according to TMZ.
The LAPD is continuing to investigate the Kanye West break-in.
