Justin Theroux probably has enough “fuck you” money hanging around that he could roll all of Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogs’ spliffs using hundred dollars bills in perpetuity. You’d think with that kind of money, he’d just go ahead and buy his way out of the ongoing legal battle he’s been having with his downstairs neighbor Norman Resnicow. But maybe Justin’s in it for the principal of the thing at this point, because Norman has been doing the most.
According to TMZ, Justin was recently granted a temporary restraining order against Nelson after he came after some of the other residents in their Greenwich Village apartment building with what looked like a harpoon. Justin is suing Norman and Norman is countersuing Justin over a dispute having to do with ongoing construction in his apartment. Norman isn’t happy about the construction and has let Justin know in outrageous ways. Now Norman is being accused of trying to intimidate the other residents from testifying on Justin’s behalf.
The fellow residents say on April 29, Resnicow confronted one of them in the lobby with what looked like 2 harpoons … one in each hand. It appears they were actually log rollers, which look like harpoons.
Justin also claims that Nelson has been trespassing on his property “in order to harass workers and take measurements to help his case”. And Nelson says that Justin has invited a “disreputable tabloid” into the building in order to publicly humiliate him.
Justin’s really digging his heels in on this one, and Norman sounds like he’s seriously losing his shit. And they both sound stubborn as mules. If I were rich and famous there’s no way I’d be dealing with all this drama. Why wouldn’t Justin just buy the building next door and be done with it?
