IT’S CHER & SHARE ALIKE FOR SINGER
BIG-HEARTED Cher has thrown open the doors of her Malibu mansion to neighbours who lost their homes in the California wildfires.
The singer and actress, 72, has already offered refuge to more than a dozen displaced victims of last month’s inferno.
They include a family of four who are still staying at her £35million estate.
Cher’s 13,000-squarefoot gated property boasts seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms as well as a guest house on
1.7 acres with views of the Pacific.
Her spokesman said: “She is doing all she can to help locals who have lost everything.”
And a source close to the If I Could Turn Back Time singer added: “Most stayed only a few days while they made more permanent plans.
“But she has told everyone they can stay as long as they want. An entire young family of four was in tears when she told them they could have the run of the guest house and there are still five or six people still staying with her.
“Locals already loved her for what she does in the community but so many are now also grateful she has turned her own home upside down to accommodate them while they figure out how to rebuild their lives.”
Flames came within feet of Cher’s security gate at the height of last month’s Woolsey Fire, which killed three, destroyed 1,643 buildings and led to the evacuations of more than 295,000 residents.
The celebrities whose homes burned down include Hollywood stars Kim Basinger, Gerard Butler and Daryl Hannah along with singers Miley Cyrus, Neil Young and Robin Thicke.
Twice-married Cher mainly lives alone in her Italian Renaissance-style mansion on Pacific Coast Highway.
She gets visits from her two sons Chaz, 49, who was born female but underwent gender transition in 2008, and Elijah Blue, 42, a musician.
