This is just horrible. Producer Dev Hynes, who worked with Solange Knowles until they had a falling out, has lost everything in a fire that ravaged his Manhattan apartment last night, Dec. 16.

Hynes, also known musically as Blood Orange, took to Twitter last night to express his devastation at the heart-wrenching incident, which unfortunately claimed the life of his dog.

Fortunately, Hynes’ girlfriend, Samantha Urbani, has come to her boyfriend’s aid: her mother, Robin Urbani has set up a fundraising site to help the producer and musician. Urbani’s initial goal was to raise $5,000, but donations have poured in so rapidly that that goal is far surpassed. Thanks to the kindness of fans, an incredible $13,500 has already been raised.

“I am overwhelmed by all the LOVE and support being offered to both Dev and Samantha!!” Urbani wrote in gratitude on the site.

Our thoughts are with Dev Hynes during this difficult time.
