An unexpected fire has burnt down a portion of rap star Ludacris‘ multi-million dollar estate last night near Atlanta.
According to the Associated Press, the rapper/actor was not present during the blaze that destroyed his pool house, but a spokesman for the Fulton County Fire Department said that one of Luda’s relatives was at the main residence when the incident began. The flames were reportedly put out within 30 minutes of the fire department’s arrival. While no one suffered any injuries, investigators are currently searching for what sparked the fire.
As previously reported by SOHH‘s Ya Heard blog, earlier this month Luda threw a pool party at his home celebrating Labor Day weekend dubbed “Luda Day.” Invited celebrity guests included DJ Drama, Bryan-Michael Cox and Sean Garrett.
In related news the Grammy award-winning artist is currently prepping the release of his sixth solo album, Theater of the Mind, for a November 11th release date. The disc, which features a star-studded guest line-up including The Game, T-Pain, T.I., Lil’ Wayne, Common and Spike Lee, is led by his new single “What Them Girls Like” featuring Chris Brown and Sean Garrett.
