Flea's House: "Burnt to a Crisp"

11/26/2007 2:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

One house lost. Another spared.

Red Hot Chili Pepper's bassist, Flea, lost one of two homes he owns after a fire spread through Malibu Saturday morning. Flea told an L.A. Times reporter in a text message that his house had "burnt to a crisp." TMZ had reported that Flea's house was fine because his manager said his home hadn't burned. The confusion was in the fact that Flea has two homes; the one that burned is a French country-style home that he rents out and is for sale for $4.8 million. The home that didn't burn -- Flea's current Malibu pad -- is a $10 million home Flea bought last year.

The Malibu fire is expected to be contained by tonight; 53 homes were destroyed and 5,900 acres burned -- causing $100 million in damages.

Go Away Paris......You are a SKANK    

I am sure he is fully insured. By the way he dresses, I am sure that he hasnt lost much.
Looks like a bunch of unlaundered rags to me.
The next royalty check will buy some new furniture or go behind the nearest supermarket and pick up some more free milk crates.
Flea will be ok!

He has the money to buy another house, and he'll get even MORE money out of that lawsuit against that TV show.

OK, dig out YOUR (meaning you, dear poster) checkbook and prepare to pay increased charges for real estate insurance, even if you don't live in California.
