Surprise! Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin Aren't The First Celebrities to Piss Off Their Neighbors
As if Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin didn't have enough on their plate with all of the conscious uncoupling and "break-up mooning" going on, it seems like their Brentwood neighbors are not sending chill vibes their way. According to a RadarOnline exclusive, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s neighbors don’t like ‘em and things could get messy. Why? Because of some trees and a gate. Hm, say what? Allegedly, a complaint was filed with the L.A. Department of Building and Safety last year regarding the four layers of fir trees and the nine-foot gate Paltrow added to the property. The permitted height limit? Three and half feet. According to RadarOnline, these modifications violate the neighborhood's zoning laws. Paltrow and Martin have yet to act on the requests/complaints.
Furthermore, the neighbors are also allegedly pissed off about the ongoing construction AND paparazzi surrounding the Paltrow-Martin home. “There was always work being done at the house," a neighbor told RadarOnline. "I only got annoyed when the workmen would illegally park in my driveway and they hadn’t even spoken to me about it.” Ugh, I get why this neighbor was annoyed. You don't mess with someone's driveway. The neighbors couldn't air their grievances with Paltrow or Martin directly, however. They had to direct all complaints to a middleman named Oliver "who seems to deal with all their issues to do with their neighbors, the house and community."
Paltrow and Martin aren't the first famous folk to have neighbors, and they aren't the first famous folk to frustrate their neighbors. Here are a few recent examples of celebs angering local residents*:*Note: It would take a LOT for a celeb neighbor to piss me off, if ever. TBH, I don't think my "OMG that's Taylor Swift" starstruck awe could ever wear away. Not even if she parked on my driveway one million times.
