This is scary!
You'll remember we reported recently about Simon Cowell's home being burglarized while he and his family were sleeping — now, the same thing has happened to Rita Ora, and cops believe it's the same burglars!
The singer and X Factor judge was robbed back on November 28 — only a week before the burglary at Cowell's house — with thieves taking jewelry, cash, and electronics from her London home.
Now, London police believe the same burglary gang is responsible for both of those robberies, as well as six more in the neighborhood that have all gone unsolved!
While Rita wasn't home at the time her house was burlgarized, the crime did hit VERY close to her heart, according to a source speaking to the Daily Mail:
At least nobody was injured!
Simon Cowell and his family — girlfriend Lauren Silverman and son Eric — were fast asleep on Friday when their west London home was robbed by unknown intruders!
The 56-year-old TV personality and his family were apparently not harmed, according to the London Metropolitan Police.
Law enforcement issued a statement on the robbery, saying:

Regardless, the 56-year-old revealed that he knew that the former 1D member was going to split from the boyband before it even happened. Say what??
Simon Cowell Finally Opens Up About His Affair With His Best Friend's Wife In A Wide-Ranging, Vulnerable Interview
This is an inneresting interview!
The affair, between Cowell and Lauren Silverman — who is now his partner, and had previously been the wife of Cowell's best friend Andrew Silverman — apparently dates all the way back to 2009, and it of course resulted in the birth of Simon's son, Eric, who is now nearly two years old.
the 56-year-old at the center of the scandal was surprisingly blunt in speaking to DailyMail.com's Mail on Sunday Event magazine:
ICYMI: Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan were presenting the music mogul with an award at the Music Industry Trusts event, when he made a very interesting comment about the boy band's former member!
The 56-year-old had said:
"Just my luck I get the award I've been wanting all my life and I'm completely hammered. Guys, who misses Zayn?"
Well, the American Idol alum found out very quickly that, actually, a LOT of people miss Zayn.
Sure, the 22-year-old walked out on the guy group earlier this year to pursue a solo career. But, since Perrie Edwards' former fiancé used to be one-fifth of 1D, there are still plenty of Directioners who love him regardless of his relationship with the other boys.
That means it was only a matter of time before the UK native backtracked on his controversial quip. Hey, he said he was drunk, after all!
The TV personality recently went on Fresh 102.7 in New York to tell radio hosts Trey and Ghia that he didn't mean any harm by what he said, confessing:
Too Soon? Simon Cowell Makes A Hilariously Awkward Zayn Malik Joke — Right In Front Of One Direction! See What He Said!

But the memorable part of the night was definitely when Cowell went on stage to collect his trophy, and gave some cheeky banter about the former band member!
He said to the audience, grabbing the mic:
