Cornell Loses $30,000 In Argentine Flood

Former AUDIOSLAVE star CHRIS CORNELL lost over $30,000 (GBP15,000)-worth of valuables after his Argentinian hotel room was flooded. The star and his wife Vicky were staying at the Faena Hotel in Buenos Aires last week (ends14Dec07) following a gig in the capital - but their visit was ruined when many of their possessions were damaged. A source tells the New York Post's gossip column PageSix, "After performing in front of a sold-out 20,00 capacity arena, Chris returned to his room and was relaxing with Vicky when the walls started trembling, like in an earthquake. "Then, Chris smelled something burning, and suddenly, the entire entrance of the hallway collapsed and gallons of freezing cold water entered the room. Within a matter of moments, Chris and his wife were up to their knees in water... They finally scrambled out but lost a lot of stuff." Cornell's representative adds, "Chris was understandably shaken - however, he was just happy no-one was injured in the flood."
