Todrick Hall Says His Friend Broke Into His Home & Stole Over $150,000 Worth Of His Luxury Goods
Musician and YouTuber Todrick Hall shared more details about the robbery that occurred at his home–including who’s responsible for it.
Todrick Hall has a message for the people who broke into his home and stole his belongings back in July. According to one of Todrick’s most recent Instagram posts, his friend, friend’s fiancé, and a friend of his friend’s swiped over $150,000 in luxury goods. He wouldn’t name the perpetrators, but he did insert surveillance footage of the three stealthily creeping up a flight of stairs inside his home. In the open letter of sorts, Todrick stated:
“For those who keep asking. I DO know who broke into my house, and it broke my heart. It would’ve been sad for a stranger to take advantage of me, but the fact that it was a friend and someone I paid very well for almost 8 years crushes me and honestly made me lose a little faith in humanity. I am not going to put him on blast and tag him in this, but I want him, his fiancé and his friend to know that I know what they did.”

Todrick also included photos of the broken glass window used for entry, along with the walk-in closet that his associates ripped through. He noted that the thieves knowingly placed his cats in the backyard, where a family of coyotes frequented. Despite the awful crimes that they allegedly committed, Todrick will not be pressing charges against them. He continued:
“They stole over $150,000 worth of luxury bags from me, destroyed my floor to ceiling windows and worst of all put my cats in danger as he knows I have a family of coyotes living in my backyard. Out of the kindness of my heart and the respect I have for the relationship we built ONCE AGAIN Todrick is going to take the high road and not press charges or throw your ass in jail.”
“I have now stepped my security system all the way up, have to have a live in security guard (which is ridiculous, but ya know…I’m going on tour so it has to be done) and now I know to truly trust no bitch. Not even the ones who pat you on the back and tell you how proud they are of you and your success 48 hours before they decide to rob you blind. Stop texting me and acting like you don’t know what you did. I never want to see you again.”
The former American Idol contestant mentioned that the burglary caused him even more trouble. A so-called private investigator charged him $5,000 and never performed any services, suddenly cutting off all contact after receiving the payment. He alleged that his insurance company, Momentous, was skeptical of the incident and wouldn’t cover the damages. Todrick claims that–even after producing valid receipts from the luxury stores where his stolen items were originally purchased–they still wouldn’t believe him. He said that white artists in the same situation have received better treatment from the brokerage.
“Oh and get this, I hired a “private investigator” who asked me for $5,000 up front and then never followed through and basically ghosted me so that was fun. What a fuckin year. Lastly, hey Momentous insurance brokerage, I pay for insurance for a reason. I want my money back asap. I know plenty of white artists who have gotten things stolen and received their money immediately because you “believed them.” This was national news when it happened. I shouldn’t have to be begging Louis and Gucci in London to print out paper receipts and having my friends get them and mail them to me from every luxury store I’ve shopped at all over the world because you don’t believe me and won’t accept legitimate verified email receipts.”
“Anyway, I’m excited it’s Christmas, 2022 will be a better year. On to bigger and better things. Here’s to new music, new tours, big moves and BIG locks on all my doors.”
The news of the robbery first broke on July 4. Todrick was in London when the incident took place.
