TMZ is reporting that a new search warrant has revealed that Cher’s Malibu home was doubling as a drug den apparently without her knowledge.
According to the media house, the singer’s mansion was swarmed by cops last Thursday who presented a search warrant, leading to the arrest of Donovan Ruiz, the 23-year-old son of one of Cher’s assistants, who lives at her residence.
The police found 1.3 grams of fentanyl powder, a Xanax pill, an unknown white pill, tin foil and a pink straw with brown residue in the house. Drug paraphernalia was also found on Ruiz and in his room, along with boxes of .22 caliber bullets. A
“Ruiz’s room was then searched, where cops say they found 16 yellow pills marked “215,” 2 pink pills marked “K40,” 3 Suboxone strips, 4 fentanyl patches, 2 boxes of .22 caliber ammunition and a Gucci box containing burnt foil and a straw,” the media house continued, adding that the “ammo is interesting…cops called in paramedics during the search … anticipating things might turn violent.”
The police reportedly believe that Ruiz was selling drugs from Cher’s mansion and had sold heroin to a Ventura County resident in September who overdosed and died, which is why they got the search warrant.
Ruiz was arrested on a felony charge for supplying narcotics to someone who dies.
Cher had yet to speak about the incident as at press time.
