PSR Blazing Showdown Early This Morning!
Yesterday, we used the word "Fire" to refer to a hot song released by PSR, today we're using the word fire to describe the real hot stuff. In the early morning hours of today, at around 4am, Keri Hilson and some PSR security were the only ones inside the building. the security were asleep down on the main lobby level of the label, and Keri was in her studio on the 6th floor finishing up her seriously overdue 2nd PSR album. Sources say at around 3:35am, Keri got hungry and decided to go down to the 4th floor where the kitchen is at and cook something on the stove, some sources say it was a cheeseburger others say it was steak, but regardless of what it was, she sat in the kitchen texting on her phone and at around 4am she was so tired and she fell asleep while the food was still cooking. At around 4am the entire Kitchen was on fire while she was in it, she was woken up by the intense heat and the smoke alarms going off. She woke up and panicked and ran out and got the fire extinguisher and tried to extinguish the fire but the fire was too intense for her to put it out. The emergency sprinklers came on but even they weren't enough to put out the huge fire. Keri then looked for her phone but it exploded in the fire that was in the kitchen, at this point the fire was getting bigger and was beginning to spread outside the kitchen, and Keri ran inside NiNi's office to use the phone and call the fire department. They arrived within 3 minutes and after about 20 minutes they were able to get the fire under control without it blazing down the entire building. Sources say that Keri was burned badly on her arm and inhaled too much smoke to the point she couldn't breath for at least 6 minutes and had to be transferred to the hospital and the entire PSR kitchen is destroyed along with half of the 4th floor which has NiNi's office and Katy Perry's studio on it as well as the elevator which is not functioning. All in all, sources say that the fire has caused at least 62 million dollars worth of damage and although that's a lot, that's a hell of a lot less then losing the whole label or a life, luckily no one was in there and the security guards were downstairs. NiNi has stated that she does not blame Keri for the fire even though she fell asleep, NiNi has said when you work that late its possible to fall asleep, its not like she fell asleep on purpose. But although NiNi doesn't blame her, sources say she blames herself and she feels terrible and she has offered to use her entire paycheck to pay for the damages. It is unknown if NiNi will keep her paycheck to pay for damages. As of right now, construction is beginning to start the repairs and the construction company says at least a weeks time it will take to rebuild the entire 4th floor so all of the artists are not actually off work, they still have shows and interviews and whatnot, but no one will be at the label until early or late next week. A fan that was out late night recorded the smoke from inside of the building and the fireman pulling up click here to check out the video.
