One week earlier, the Australian actor shared a photo of what was left of the longtime couple’s Malibu home after fire had ravaged the area.
“It’s been a heartbreaking few days. This is what’s left of my house. Love,” he captioned a photo show of the destruction on November 13. “Many people in Malibu and surrounding areas in California have lost their homes also and my heart goes out to everyone who was affected by these fires.”
He continued, “I spent the day in Malibu yesterday and it was amazing to see the community pulling together to help each other out in any way they can. Malibu is a strong community and this event is only going to make it stronger. Thankful for the all the great local guys that helped keep smaller fires out around my property. I love u guys. I love you Malibu. Thank you to all the hero firefighters around California. It’s going to be a journey to rebuild. Stay strong all. To help/donate visit @malibufoundation and @happyhippiefdn.”
Miley’s older sister Brandi Cyrus exclusively opened up to Us Weekly about the loss of the couple’s house at Bumble and Moxy Hotel’s BumbleSpot #attheMoxy launch event in Chicago on November 15. “It, like, just doesn’t seem real,” she told Us. “And unfortunately, Miley is halfway across the world working right now, so for her, she’s probably feeling the worst of it because she feels so helpless from so far away.”
The “Your Favorite Things With Wells & Brandi” podcast cohost, 31, added, “They’re fortunate enough that they have another house to live in, so they’re trying to help raise money for all the people that don’t through the Malibu Foundation … it really is a special place.”
Other celebrities, including Robin Thicke and April Geary, Camille Grammer and Gerard Butler also lost their homes in the fires, which have left more than 80 dead and hundreds of thousands more displaced.
