Singer-choreographer Paula Abdul was collecting trophies at the American Music Awards show Monday night while burglars were helping themselves to valuables at her home.
Police said Tuesday that the popular entertainer discovered the robbery when she returned to her Studio City apartment after the awards show, where she was named Top Female Pop-Rock Vocalist and Favorite Dance Artist.
"But there was no sign of forced entry and there was no ransacking," said police Lt. Michael Ranshaw. "Mostly jewelry was taken."
A preliminary estimate of her loss was placed at $3,400, he said.
Studio City is about 10 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles.
