      Not my area of expertise since I’m not into theoretical physics. My understanding is that a black hole is a region of spacetime that shows such strong gravitational effects that nothing (light or particles) can escape from inside it. But it has stellar mass so it still has energy. Energy would not be lost but converted to another form.
