On Thursday, a man was arrested by the police in Cher’s home in Malibu while she was touring throughout Australia. Mr. Donovan Ruiz, 23, the son of Cher’s assistant, Jen Ruiz, was taken away by the police.
Jen Ruiz has been working alongside Cher for approximately 25 years, so undoubtedly, Cher will not be happy with the news. Reportedly, the Ventura County police went to the home due to a recent drug overdose in Thousand Oaks, California.
ABC News reported on Friday that the police acquired the legal right to search Cher’s home. Sergeant Eric Buschow said to People Magazine on Thursday that they arrested him due to a “narcotics overdose” that happened in the last two weeks.

A litany of first-responder vehicles arrived at Cher’s home on Thursday night. However, Sergeant Buschow said to People that the 72-year-old superstar has nothing to do with the altercation.
Regardless, they have taken the 23-year-old into custody. Authorities charged Ruiz with the sale of a controlled substance and there will be additional charges due to the death of one of his customers.
He is currently sitting in jail while held on a $500,000 bail. On Thursday, Cher tweeted that things happen in this world we often have no control over.
As you may know, fentanyl has proved itself to be a matter of national concern for its role in the opioid epidemic. Drug users, who are taking a narcotic to have a good time, often believe they’re ingesting something less harmful such as cocaine or MDMA, but end up taking fentanyl, which is toxic even at low doses.
