Yahoo! Heiress Injured From Hot Box Springs

6/17/2010 3:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We've learned Courtenay Semel -- heiress to the Yahoo! fortune and former GF of Johnson & Johnson heiress Casey Johnson -- was hospitalized this week after someone in her apartment accidentally ignited a mattress.

Yahoo! Heiress

Courtenay was sleeping Saturday when she was awakened by firemen who were banging down the door.  It seems a house guest had left a flat iron on the bed and the mattress got so hot it exploded in flames.

Courtenay suffered through the weekend ... vomiting and such.  On Monday she went to the hospital ... where she received oxygen. 

She's out of the hospital but says she's still the worse for wear, suffering from bad headaches and labored breathing.

sure it was a flat iron. Crack pipe or bong is more like it. And of course we get the pictures of her doing a breathing treatment. Breaking news......... *eyeroll*

If she had a waterbed this would not have happened.
She does seem to be good looking however.

She's not an heir to Yahoo! at all. Her father, Terry Semel was formerly the CEO of Yahoo!, but he got canned and he had no ownership stake in the company other than the stock he options he may have received while he was CEO.



Institutional investors own far more of Yahoo! than any one person, so let's not make things up just to make a story seem more interesting.

Who cares! This fame whore is nothing except a trust fund lesbo trying to garner some media. This is not celebrity news. TMZ must be that desparate for stories.
