Bruno Mars’ Girlfriend Dies in Freak Grenade Accident Wednesday 23rd March 2011 The city of Los Angeles was in shock this morning after wanna-be actress Chanel Malvar, singer Bruno Mars’ on-again-off-again girlfriend, was killed in a freak grenade accident.
Malvar was watching Mars rehearse for an upcoming show when the accident occurred. He was performing his recent hit Grenade when the pin on an actual grenade was mistakenly pulled backstage, blowing up most of the venue. Fire Brigade officials said that Malvar was the only person backstage at the time and that it appears as if she was the one to pull the pin.
It is unclear whether the accident was a result of a joke gone wrong or whether there was a more sinister reason for Malvar’s death. A close friend told reporters that Malvar “always joked about actually throwing a grenade at Bruno, to see if he really would catch it for her”.
This story was corroborated by many who knew Malvar, stating that she seemed to get “a sick sort of pleasure” out of the brutal things the song suggested Mars would do for her. Contrary to the lyrics in the song, it appears Mars had no intentions of ever catching that grenade, sparking tabloids to allege he let it happen in revenge for Malvar’s ‘little indiscretion’ in December last year.
Mars was admitted into Saint Vincent Medical Centre following the explosion and has been unavailable for comment, but a representative of the singer released the following statement:
“These past weeks, Bruno has been unsure where his relationship with Chanel stood, but he is relieved to finally have an answer, even if it is because of this tragedy.”
A police investigation is set to follow after claims were made that Malvar has been collecting other paraphernalia to do with the song, including knives and guns.
