Sharon Osbourne thanks rapper Jamal Rajad for saving daughter Aimee’s life from studio fire

Sharon Osbourne has thanked rapper Jamal Rajad for helping save her daughter Aimee’s life following a Hollywood studio fire that killed a young producer and injured two others.

Producer Nathan Avery Edwards – who professionally goes by Avery Drift – 26, died and two others were treated for smoke exposure after a fire broke out at a studio.

The fire started around 6:30 p.m. Thursday and it is unclear how the fire started.

Osbourne’s daughter Aimee, 38, was reportedly working with a producer at one of the studios when the fire broke out and she almost had to jump off the building, according to the rapper’s wife.

The former X Factor judge, 69, took to her Instagram Stories on Friday to share her gratitude to the rapper for saving her daughter’s life by responding to a comment from Rajad’s wife, Pretty Face Ray ‘Ray, who is also a rapper.

Sharon wrote: ‘Your husband alerted her literally saved her life. THANK YOU @pretty.face.rayray.’

In the original comment, Ray’Ray wrote: ‘ASKED MY HUSBAND TO CATCH IT [Aimee] FOR SHE TO JUMP FROM THE SECOND FLOOR AFTER HE SCREAMED, HE LET EVERYONE IN THE BUILDING KNOW. Glad she didn’t have to [JUMP] AND SHE WAS WELL.

Ray’Ray added, “I’m still here right now, hoping to get our studio gear back.”

Osbourne also offered his condolences to Edwards’ family, writing in an Instagram post: “It’s absolutely heartbreaking that someone lost their life today in this fire.” [and] we send our prayers to this person [and] their family. What happened today was beyond horrible.

Dancing with the Stars host Carrie Ann Inaba responded to the article, writing: “Glad Aimee and her producer are safe…but my heart aches for the person who lost their life, his family and loved ones.” How scary that must have been for all of them…’

Osbourne also described the building as a “creative center for music in Hollywood” and lamented the loss of equipment belonging to the various artists who worked there.

She also called for better fire safety in these buildings, as it was later revealed that the century-old building had no sprinkler system.

The Talk co-host ended her emotional post by writing, “Our prayers go out to the family and friends of the person who lost their life in this senseless fire.”

Aimee, who professionally goes by ARO, her initials, also posted a tribute to Edwards, writing on her Instagram story, “I’m still in full [and] total shock [and] finding it unbearable to sit still long enough to feel [and] understand that Avery failed to make it out.

“If there was anything any of us could have done, we would have done it. I can’t put the words together to describe how terrifying yesterday was.

‘I send all the love I have to Avery’s friends [and] family… Avery, you will not be forgotten.’

The structure housed several recording and rehearsal studios with thick, soundproof walls, which proved difficult for firefighters, according to CBS News.

“The studios were soundproof so it’s thick walls, extra insulation, double dry wall and thick windows that trap all the heat and smoke making for a very hot firefight and intense,” LAFD captain Erik Scott told CBS News. “Our firefighters were beaten, but they were relentless and put out the flames.”

Seventy-eight firefighters were able to extinguish the flames within an hour. While extinguishing the fire, authorities discovered a marijuana grow op on the second floor. It is unclear whether this caused the fire and investigators are investigating whether it was legal.

A hip-hop artist named Maximilian told KABC-TV he lost everything.

“I opened the door, I saw smoke coming out from across the hall. I immediately reached out to grab a jug of water. I threw it out the door, the flames have burst [sic]. I tried to go back to my room and grab everything I could, but the flames were everywhere, and we ran out of the building, and that was it.

Aimee returned to the site on Friday, with fire investigators on the scene, and was seen hugging Rajad, who is credited with raising the alarm about the blaze.

“I was my own smoke detector,” Rajad told the Los Angeles Times. “I ran into my room and grabbed my things and left my door open, trying to call my cats to follow me.”

Rajad said he tried to go inside to save his four cats, but the smoke was too thick and all the animals died.

Aimee and her music producer escaped the flames, but both were treated for exposure to smoke.

She appeared in a few family projects, including documentaries and interviews about her father and his career as the leader of Black Sabbath.

The versatile entertainer provided voice work in Postman Pat: The Movie and starred as Raquelle in the TV movie Wuthering Heights.
