Marc Jacobs

Hurricane Sandy

DESTROYED My Apartment

11/3/2012 8:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

110212_marc_jacobs_launchDesigner Marc Jacobs was among the hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy last weekend -- telling TMZ, he completely lost his Manhattan apartment due to flooding ... and now, he's looking for a new place to live.

Marc was out walking his dog Friday in New York -- and he told us, he had to move uptown temporarily because Sandy completely destroyed his West Village apartment.

Marc says it's so bad, he hasn't even been able to go back to try to salvage some of his belongings.

Sucks ... but something tells us he'll be just fine.

Give me a break!    

He's a gazillionaire. Its hard to muster up extra sympathy for him. I feel bad for the elderly that lost their homes after a long life of hard work and struggle.

booo hooo marc
it destroyed a lot of my neighbors
and my building is safe but a lot of my neighbors lost a lot
but marc, you should be the last one complaining
like me, you have the means, so no one feels sorry for you
donate and be charitable in these times

Okay is West Manhattan apartment was destroyed, there are others who don't have electricity, have loss family members and are homeless as a result of Hurricane Sandy. I feel his cir***stance but I have more sympathy for families that don't have the means to move to upstate NYC or secure a warm place to lay their heads down at night while they sort out their affairs.

'Hardest hit' TMZ? Really?? I thought the people who died or lost loves ones were the hardest hit. p.s.: Don't blame the designer, he was just being polite by answering TMZ's question.

TMZ, your udders must be getting sore. In your clip, Marc was definitely not complaining. He mumbled a few words as he was being pestered by your crew … the rest was added by TMZ writers.


Since Sandy is a National tragedy, I think the viewers would forgive you if you were serious just this once, and posted a REAL story about this horrible storm.

First of all he was out walking his dog, minding his own business when TMZ approached HIM, so it's not like he is out there crying poor me. Second, yes he has the money to replace the building, but I'm sure he had personal, irreplaceable belongings, in his apartment just like everyone else. Just because he's rich doesn't mean he doesn't deserve compassion.

You know TMZ, I just dont know where your f****ing priorities lie...you guys are on the West Coast...maybe Harvey you should get your egotistical ass on a plane and come see for yourself the devastation here on the East Coast...who cares that these rich celebrities lost their homes? They can well afford to rebuild, go stay in a luxury hotel for an unlimited time, etec etc...unlike people here who have lost everything and dont have the monetary means to rebuild etc. Stop with the Boo Hoo Hoo friggin celebrity storms...ie KK got her fat ass back on a plane to Miami so that she could advoid the storm...Really TMZ...you need to stop printing this crap now...how some heart and a social concious for everyone on the East Coast who has beeen devastated by this storm!!!
