LONDON (Reuters Life!) - A Polish national has been charged with burglary, London police said on Monday, after British newspapers reported that he broke into the home of pop star Madonna.

According to the newspapers, Madonna and her children were in the United States at the time of the break-in, after the death of her grandmother.

A police spokesman confirmed that Grzegorz Matlok, 29, of no fixed address in the United Kingdom, was arrested on Saturday morning in central London and charged with burglary on Sunday.

He was due to attend a London court on Monday.

Madonna's maternal grandmother, Elsie Mae Fortin, died on Wednesday in Bay City, Michigan, aged 99.
