Could this be karma for rudely shading Madonna on Ellen? After all, how many cross the Queen of Pop and get away with it?
Just before her well-reviewed ABBA tribute album Dancing Queen was released [today], Cher’s Malibu mansion was raided by police on Thursday, as reported by TMZ.
The 72-year-old wasn’t home at the time of the raid; she’s on an international tour.
Police executed a search warrant after a Ventura County resident’s drug-related death earlier this month was traced to 23-year-old Donovan Ruiz, the son of one of Cher’s assistants. He was living at Cher's pad at the time.
Cher’s $40 million-dollar home was a spectacle on Thursday, with a massive swarming of law enforcement, firefighters and paramedics on the scene. Paramedics were on hand in case violence erupted, which apparently it didn’t.
Ruiz was taken into custody for a felony: supplying drugs to someone who dies.

Don’t do drugs, kids! On a more upbeat note, Dancing Queen is available to stream or purchase now.
