Gerard Butler's House Is Partially Destroyed From California Fires

Gerard Butler has taken to Instagram to show his fans the massive destruction at his home from the California wildfires.

The 48-year-old actor posted two videos on his Instagram Story to show the destruction.

First, Gerard could be heard saying, “Welcome to my home in Malibu” while showing down debris. He then showed the structure of his house. He can also be heard saying, “half gone,” indicating that some of his property survived.

Gerard also posted on Instagram, writing, “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,” including a link to donate.

Our thoughts are with all of those affected by these terrible wildfires that have destroyed parts of Malibu.

    Shouldn’t have donated his money to Israel. This is just karma happening.

  • Yeah Right

    This is so heartbreaking for Gerry. A house and possessions can be replaced but a life cannot. I thank God that Gerry is safe. Praying for Gerry and all those involved in this tragic fire.

    B.S. It wasn’t just his house that burned down and what a nasty thing to say when so many people just suffered a huge loss. Sorry for your loss GB and to all the people who lost their homes and/or lives. It’s heartbreaking but glad your okay. That’s what matters most. Thoughts and prayers with everyone during this difficult time.

    “He says half of his property is gone” – according to TMZ. He says it’s ‘half gone’ in his IG story, actually. Still awful, of course, but at least he’s safe…

  • Sorcina

    Sorry for all you’ve lost, but happy you are ok.

  • Wondering

    I cannot believe that some people cannot feel the loss people have when something like this happens. So many have died and the destruction that the survivors are living through can be heartbreaking. I am glad he is safe and maybe part of his property can be salvaged. Material things can be replaced but you still feel the loss of the things that had memories attached to them. You have thousands of people without a home to go back to. Everything they owned gone. Yes it can be rebuilt but that takes time and where do they go until that happens. God bless the survivors and all the firefighters and emergency people who have put their life on the line for this horrendous event.

  • Wondering

    He isn’t to blame for this fire and maybe you should hope karma doesn’t bite you for these comments.

  • AJ

    Very true and well said! Glad you are okay Wondering! Been thinking of you.:)

  • Sunkist

    I just tried to post a link to a site which featured this property, JJ “moderated” it. SAD.

  • Sunkist

    This was just the guest house, and Morgan’s truck.

  • Wondering

    AJ, I live in New York, but thanks for your concern.

  • Sonia

    I read the comments in the TMZ story and some of them are just disgusting. Racist, anti-immigrants, they deserved it cos California is a liberal state etc. I know they’re just trolls but it’s still gross that people say such things. And to think that Trump’s initial response to the fires was to tweet like a troll too, setting a great example for all trolls.
    I know he’s a multi-millionaire and he didn’t lose his entire property and he will recover and there are loads of others in far worse conditions with no money etc but it’s still not nice for this to happen to anyone.

  • Data Miner

    I think Gerry fell under the California bad luck…the way they murder, lie, rape, and steal. Everybody suffers. It’s why I wouldn’t live in that hellhole. A lot of trash evil people live there and make it horrible for normal decent people like Gerry.

  • AJ

    Exactly! A tragedy is a tragedy no matter who or where it happens.

  • Data Miner

    As much as I would love to say it isn’t possible but raw evil takes place in California. We all know it. And that is a spiritual aspect too. Evil makes everyone unsafe.

    I know Christians who had homes burned. But that’s the risk you take.

  • Guest

    God blesses those who bless Israel. This is sad for him but had nothing to do with his support for Israel. He will rebuild and be like new in a year. Your hate will destroy you.

  • Wondering

    You know whatever insurance people have will never cover everything that is lost. Some people have owned their homes for years and costs of building new homes have doubled or more. Trump is a fool and doesn’t have an ounce of empathy for anyone. TMZ and the DM have people commenting that I swear have no hearts or sense at all. The death toll is at 32 now with so many still not known if they have survived. I just can’t believe that people are so hard hearted. Has their life been so hard it has made them so jaded. The hurricanes, fires, tornadoes destroy not just material things but people. Some never recover from it. The house I grew up in was destroyed and even now when I visit my brother I see the empty lot where it once stood and feel the loss and the memories. I’m glad that part of what Gerry has been saved and he is ok.

  • Dorothyfromoz

    Thank God they are safe, personal possessions come and go but lives can’t be replaced. My heart goes out to Gerry, Morgan, and all those who have lost so much in these fires. Keeping them all in my prayers. Life is nothing more than a test to see what we are all made of.

  • les

    MB lives in central LA she hasn’t lost anything, now she has full control of Butler

  • Sunkist

    So, you marvelled at the spontaneous pics of Gerard hugging his longtime girlfriend for emotional support?(sarcasm) He purposely only posted a video of the destroyed guest house, and Morgan’s truck. Why not show the house? The pretty much untouched house? He wouldn’t be revealing anything personal. The property pics have been out there for over two years. And you can’t see it from the street, it is set far back. Perhaps just no PR value in good news? It would have been a perfect opportunity for some positive PR. Hugging his “supportive” girlfriend, while his home was “Miraculously” spared. Cuddles with happy puppy, smiles. “I have been truly Blessed!”.
    But no…
    I hope this all was Jillie’s doing. Most of the mainstream media who chose to run with this, are sticking with the ” totally destroyed”, “poor, poor Gerry” angle. In new matching jackets.
    Pandering for P/R during a disaster?
    What’s next, “stroll-by-ruins”?
    Please no.

    Karma because he donated money to a cause? Do you even know what “karma “ means? You need to do some reading!

    You’re a nasty piece of work. After days of ridiculously hysterical posts about how you can’t breathe (or whatever shite you said) cos you didn’t know if he was okay blah blah blah..now that you know he’s fine, you’re back to finding negative things about everything Gerard Butler says/does and I’m sure your conspiracy theories will come soon too. You sound almost disappointed that his house didn’t actually burn down.
    If he had done what you suggest here, I’m 99.9% sure you would’ve reacted in one of two ways:
    1. Chided him for being insensitive about having his home and rubbing it in when so many have suffered losses, or
    2. Blamed Avi/JC or your new target Jillie for bringing in MB to show a more human side to him during a difficult time
    You would’ve called anything he had posted PR/BS (which is an irritatingly stupid term, by the way), as you always do. You’ve not approved of 99% of the things Gerard Butler has done in the last few years so why the hell are you still checking up on him every day? Sorcina was spot on about you – this is some sort of punishment isn’t it, cos he didn’t live up to your fantasies? (Sorry, Sorcina, hope I remembered what you said correctly) Cos it’s either that or you’re trolling.
    If news/entertainment outlets don’t fact check (his IG story gave the full picture) before posting stories or use clickbait headlines, you can’t blame Gerard Butler if they get things wrong. Look at JJ, which changed its headline and added the ‘half gone’ comment after initially saying his home was totally destroyed. Credible entertainment sites like ET and TMZ reported it accurately too. Besides, it also depends on how you interpret his post and his property…even if only a part of it has burned down, some might say his property has been destroyed, full stop. (Not everyone is a nutcase like you who knows the layout of his property) He doesn’t need to go through complete and total devastation for it to be deemed destroyed. But, of course, you’re Debbie Downer so everything is negative and wrong to you.
    You’re no different than the trolls who post racist/political crap to push their agenda during difficult times. It’s just that your agenda is that Gerard Butler is a hopeless, useless man who is surrounded by losers and you’re the only one who can help him. I’m surprised you weren’t offended by him going to watch a film during this time too. I haven’t replied to you in a while cos I see you as pure entertainment on this site (your posts really are hilarious to me) but I just had to say this in this situation. Don’t bother replying, please get help instead cos you have an extremely unhealthy obsession with a celebrity.

    This is so sad. I am just glad Morgan put on her best jeans to go into a fire zone.

  • Nox

    Hey!! Pick on your own State.

  • Sonia

    Lol, it was the only way she could show some flesh and we know she always needs to do that.

  • Data Miner

    Oh don’t worry, I clean house here in Georgia. But California is beyond repair.

  • Data Miner

    Example 1. Tony Robbins.

  • Nox

    It’s just so…..there aren’t any words. You go into a burned out area where embers are still hot and smoke is so thick you can’t breathe and you wear clothes exposing your skin. I rolled my eyes when I saw her. I am of the opinion that she is an absolute idiot. Not a brain cell floating around in that giant forehead.

  • Nox

    I watched woman on TV yesterday say 3 generations of her family lost their homes in Paradise Ca. All of their family pictures are gone. I know it is just stuff. But some stuff is precious and can’t be replaced. It’s heart breaking.

  • Data Miner

    I’m pretty sure you nor “Yeah Right” care about people and their pain, since you like coming on here and causing pain.

  • Sonia

    I’ve said it before, she’s a bimbo without the good looks.

  • Data Miner

    Yep, come on here and causing people pain. I think you’re the tubby bimbo that does that

  • Data Miner

    I think it’s time to pay california a visit though.

  • Dorothyfromoz

    Damn woman, have you no heart? I don’t think that poorly of anyone who was in even close to this disaster. He was quite obviously upset, cut him some slack. At the very least just don’t post or read about it if you care so little. All weekend long I have been watching pictures of this devastating fire and the ruins it has been leaving in its path. Just being exposed to it has left many in that community with psychological and emotional scars that won’t heal quickly. Maybe they had matching jackets because they had to leave their residence so quickly they didn’t pack a coat so they went out and bought one together. Who cares what they are wearing, be glad they are alive. That’s what really matters.

  • Yeah Right

    Excellent post Sonia!

  • Yeah Right

    I know what you mean Nox. I would rather lose everything I own/have/cherish than lose a person I care about.

  • Data Miner

    I doubt you have anyone who cares about you really. You or Nox.

  • Data Miner

    Unloved people come on here and bash other posters and Morgan.

    You Californians deserve everything bad that happens to all of you.

    You know what they say, destruction and the cops cops quickly. Be careful, you evil people.

  • Wondering

    Sonia and Dorothy, thank you ladies for seeing her for what she really is. I don’t think any other poster here is as bitter as she is.

    You’re right Wondering. The other twisted poster on here has such a limited vocabulary she can’t write a post unless it is filled with profanity.
