Lana Del Rey took to Instagram to inform her followers that a laptop, three video cameras, and several hard drives were swiped from her car while it was parked in Los Angeles.

Del Rey revealed the theft on Melrose Place “a few months ago” has resulted in a number of unfinished songs leaking, as well as personal photos finding their way online. She was also forced to delete the files on her laptop, which included a long manuscript.

“I had to remotely wipe the computer that had my 200-page book for Simon & Schuster, which I didn’t have backed up on a cloud. … And despite that, people are still able, this week, to remotely access my phone and leak our songs and personal photos,” she said. 

Lana expressed concerns about the footage contained within the stolen items, explaining that these recordings feature members of her family spanning the last two years. 

LDR implored her fans to avoid listening to any of the leaked tracks. “And, in terms of the book, I loved the book that I lost with all of my heart and put a lot of passion into it,” she said. “And in terms of the camcorders, we shall see what happens with that.”

Lana Del Rey is set to appear on “Snow on the Beach” on Taylor Swift’s 10th studio album Midnights, which arrives this Friday, Oct. 21.
