Stormzy has spoken out online after police reportedly kicked his front door through in the belief that he was a burglar.
The grime star said that he was awoken the sound of police ‘destroying’ the front door of his Chelsea home, and then called for them to pay for damages.
“Woke up to Feds destroying my front door coz apparently I’m burglar who burgles his own home,” he wrote on Twitter. “@MetPolice need your bank details still.”
The Metropolitan Police then told NME: “Police were called to an address in West Brompton at 00:55hrs on Tuesday, 14 February to a report of a conspiracy to burgle a ground floor flat believed to have been vacant.
“Officers attended and forced entry to the property, and found there to be two lawful occupants inside. Officers remained at the property until it was made secure.
They added: “Officers have since been in further communication with the complainant. ”

His followers then responded then responded in shock:
you must be special, i thought they were too busy to follow up burglaries. You normally get a crime number if lucky

Feds is Feds. But it shows that someone in your neighbourhood decided you didn't belong. That's the real worry.

The Metropolitan Police were unable to provide NME with a response.
The album is due for release on 24 February and will see Stormzy call at 16 shows across the UK and Ireland – culminating in two massive nights at the O2 Academy Brixton.
“This is the moment that I have been waiting for my whole life,” said Stormzy. “I am now ready to certify my position as a credible artist and someone who is here for the long run.”
