Miley Cyrus' Malibu Home Burns Down in California Wildfire
The "Malibu" singer is having a "very hard" time coping with the loss of her and Liam Hemsworth's house that was destroyed during California's wildfires.
Miley Cyrus revealed overnight she is one of the many people who have lost their homes due to the California wildfires. "I am one of the lucky ones. My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE made it out safely and that's all that matters right now. My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family and friends stand strong. I am grateful for all I have left," Cyrus tweeted. "Sending so much love and gratitude to the firefighters and L.A. County Sheriff's department!"
Cyrus' fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, has yet to comment on the tragedy.
The couple, who owned a $2.5 million four-bedroom home in Malibu, are among the hundreds of thousands of California residents who were forced to evacuate as flames ripped through the area. Cyrus asked her followers to support various relief efforts, writing, "I love you more than ever." She shared links to Airbnb, the California Community Foundation's Wildfire Relief Fund, the California Fire Foundation, Direct Relief, the Entertainment Industry Foundation's Fire Relief Fund, the Red Cross and the United Way's Disaster Relief Fund.
"Miley is currently out of the country and has not seen her house but is incredibly sad over losing everything in the fire," a source tells E! News. "She is so thankful her horses and her pets are all out, but she is taking the loss very hard right now and feeling helpless since she is not close to home." Cyrus has stayed in constant contact with Hemsworth, and the "trauma of losing their belongings" has brought them "closer together, even though they're not physically together." Although the couple is "still in shock," the source adds, "They've been leaning on each other for support and constantly telling each other how grateful they are for each other."
Other celebrities, including Gerard Butler, Camille Grammer, Neil Young and Robin Thicke, also lost their homes due to the wildfires. Thicke posted a statement on Instagram, in which he thanked the firefighters and volunteers who had "risked their lives trying to save our home."
The Woolsey fire is one of three major blazes burning across California.
As of Sunday night, it had spread to 85,500 acres and is about 15 percent contained.
"This is truly a tragedy that all Californians can understand and respond to," Governor Jerry Brown said at a press briefing. "It's a time to pull together and work through these tragedies."
