Mal­ibu burn­ing: Kar­dashi­ans, Lady Gaga, Cher fear for homes

The Philippine Star - - WORLD NEWS -

LOS AN­GE­LES (Reuters) — Kim Kar­dashian and Lady Gaga were among thou­sands flee­ing their homes on Fri­day as a fast­mov­ing wild­fire en­gulfed Mal­ibu and nearby celebrity neigh­bor­hoods.

Kar­dashian, who on Thurs­day evac­u­ated the home she shares in nearby Cal­abasas with Kanye West, tweeted on Fri­day that she “heard the flames have hit our prop­erty...but now are more con­tained and have stopped.”

Mal­ibu and Cal­abasas are home to hun­dreds of celebri­ties and en­ter­tain­ment ex­ec­u­tives at­tracted by its ocean views, rolling hills and large, iso­lated es­tates. Cur­rent and for­mer res­i­dents in­clude Barbra Streisand, Tom Hanks, Judd Apa­tow and Brit­ney Spears.

Celebrity web­site TMZ re­ported that the Mal­ibu home of Cait­lyn Jen­ner, Amer­ica’s best-known trans­gen­der ac­tivist, was de­stroyed by the flames on Fri­day. Her pub­li­cist could not con­firm the sta­tus of her house, but told

Reuters that Jen­ner was safe. Cher, who said she had lived in Mal­ibu since 1972, tweeted that the wild­fire was com­ing close to her home, although she said she was not on the prop­erty.

“Friends’ houses have burned. I can’t bear the thought of there be­ing no Mal­ibu,” the singer posted.
