When a March fire damaged West Hollywood’s Granville Towers, no one was more devastated than Ashley Greene, whose dog was killed during the blaze. Now four of the Twilight star’s former neighbors are making her revisit the tragedy by suing her.
“My clients have been through hell,” lawyer Keith Davidson told The New York Post, adding the plaintiffs seek unspecified damages for their emotional stress and some physical issues, e.g. smoke inhalation, exhaustion.
The suit was filed by three former residents and the doorman.
“Living next to Ashley was pure hell,” said tenant John Luciano, who is among the plaintiffs. “It was like living next to Studio 54, with people coming and going at all hours of the night. We would have had more peace and quiet living next to Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller.”
A source close to the 26-year-old actress said Ashley is “completely distraught” by the lawsuit, particularly because the fire was ruled an accident that was caused by a candle.
“None of it was intentional and she feels deeply saddened by the whole thing.”
