Sad! Gerard Butler, Miley Cyrus Lose Homes In Californian Wildfire; Lady Gaga, Orlando Bloom, Kim Kardashian & More Affected
Thousands of residents have fled their homes as wildfires swept over a large part of Southern California on Friday (Nov. 9).
Celebrities whose coastal homes have been damaged or destroyed in a Southern California wildfire or were forced to flee from the flames expressed sympathy and solidarity with those hurt worse by the state’s deadly blazes, and gave their gratitude to firefighters who kept them safe.
“Returned to my house in Malibu after evacuating,” Gerard Butler wrote in an Instagram post next to a photo that showed a burned-out structure and a badly scorched vehicle. “Heartbreaking time across California. Inspired as ever by the courage, spirit and sacrifice of firefighters.”

Returned to my house in Malibu after evacuating. Heartbreaking time across California. Inspired as ever by the courage, spirit and sacrifice of firefighters. Thank you @LosAngelesFireDepartment. If you can, support these brave men and women at SupportLAFD.org. Link in bio.
Miley Cyrus also lost the home she shares with Liam Hemsworth due to the Southern California wildfire.
The singer/actress was last seen in Cape Town.
The Hannah Montana star wrote on Twitter: “Completely devastated by the fires affecting my community. I am one of the lucky ones. My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE made it out safely & that’s all that matters right now. My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family & friends stand strong.”
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s home in the gated community of Hidden Hills was among those in danger.
The flames were reportedly on the property of their multi-million-dollar estate, but did not reach the main house. The entire community has been evacuated, along with other nearby areas.
“I heard the flames have hit our property at our home in Hidden Hills but now are more contained and have stopped at the moment,” tweeted Kim. “It doesn’t seems like it is getting worse right now, I just pray the winds are in our favor. God is good. I’m just praying everyone is safe.”
A grateful Kim also thanked the firefighters for their help. “Fire Fighters, I love you and thank you for doing all that you can to keep us safe!” she added.
