Keith Richards Kills Pricey Flower With Smoke

The Rolling Stones star enjoyed a smoke at the New York Public Library in October and the nicotine smoke from his cigarette reportedly killed the orchid in the room.

hellraiser is in trouble again. He's been accused of destroying an expensive flower with his cigarette.

The legendary guitarist was reportedly enjoying a smoke at the main branch of the New York Public Library prior to a guest appearance in October this year, and stubbed out his cigarette in a clay saucer holding the plant pot. Staff at the office of Marie d'Origny, deputy director of the Cullman Center, opened a window to ventilate the room once Richards had left - but the chilly air and nicotine smoke caused the orchid to wilt and die, according to a blogger.

But d'Origny is unlikely to complain to the rocker's reps about his behavior. Before leaving the building, Richards signed the saucer as a memento of his visit.
