Thieves stole jewellery, computers and clothes in a raid on U.S. singer Nell Bryden's hotel room while she was performing onstage.

The pregnant star was singing for fans in Sheffield, England during her current U.K. tour when crooks struck at a hotel where she was staying in the city.

Two men ransacked her room and stole laptop computers, gems, and stage costumes in the raid earlier this month (Oct14).

Bryden, whose baby is due next month (Nov14), has now filed a compensation claim for $16,000 (£10,000), claiming security procedures at the hotel were inadequate.
