A MAN HAS been charged with burglary after a break-in at Madonna’s London home.

The singer’s Georgian mansion was burgled over the weekend, while Madonna was in the United States with her children following the death of her grandmother, according to the Sun.

Police confirmed that 29-year old Grzegorz Matlok was arrested early Saturday at a house in the city’s Marylebone area, where the queen of pop has a home. The singer’s security team reported told police that Matlok has stalked Madonna in the past.

He was due to appear in a London court later Monday, charged with burglary.

Madonna’s maternal grandmother, Elsie Mae Fortin, died Wednesday in Bay City, Michigan, at the age of 99.
