“Grey’s Anatomy” has been around for a long time (some might say too long), but Isaiah Washington has only been on it for no more than three years. Playing Dr. Preston Burke on the show, his behind-the-scenes behavior included homophobic slurs as well as verbal abuse targeted at castmates.
Only one of those numerous incidents was followed by an apology. He was then forced to attend counseling, but apparently, it didn’t do much, and he was soon fired from the show.
Foxy Brown's Full Moon
Famous rapper Foxy Brown is known for being temperamental (to put it nicely). So it wasn't surprising when news broke out in 2007 about a dispute she'd had with her neighbor, Arlene Raymond. Brown had a restraining order filed against her after she threw a Blackberry at Raymond. But there's more.
In 2010, things got heated again. Brown was rehearsing in her Brooklyn apartment, and when she stepped outside, Raymond stared her down for making too much noise. Brown lost it and resorted to offensive language and eventually bent over, lowered her pants, and mooned her! Obviously, Raymond called the police, and Foxy is now banned from having any further contact.
"You and Me, Outside" Anthony Michael Hall, the Street Fighter
Anthony Michael Hall, who played a geeky teenager in "Sixteen Candles" and "The Breakfast Club," is no longer an innocent teenager. Back in 2011, he insulted his neighbor and threatened to “beat him to a pulp”, which resulted in his arrest. Allegedly, this happened after the neighbor had asked Hall what he was doing when he saw him tear up some plants in the building.
Mere days later, Hall knocked on the neighbor's door and challenged him to a street fight. The neighbor slammed the door in Hall's face and called the police. Again. Hall was arrested. Again. But released shortly after without any charges.
Chris Brown Is a Bad Neighbor
Famous American singer-songwriter Chris Brown has had way too many run-ins with the law. Brown has had problems everywhere he's lived. In one of his old apartments, he was accused of holding dog races in the building hallway, constantly occupying handicapped spots, and being involved in illegal graffiti artwork.
In 2016, in his new mansion in California, his neighbors endlessly complained about him revving his car engines at 12 AM. Cops were constantly called to his place, and in one case, the standoff took 27 hours after he'd threatened a woman. Brown was released on a $250,000 bail and said he was innocent of all the charges against him. Should we believe him?
Mario Batali Isn't a Man of His Word
Mario Batali is a renowned American chef. While he may have a great relationship with food, he can't say the same about his relationships with human beings. Back in 2014, when Batali wanted to open his new "Babbo" restaurant in Manhattan, he promised Nurettin Akgul, his neighbor, that he would soundproof the place. He didn't.
Akgul, a retired oil executive, sued Batali for $10 million. According to him, since the restaurant opened, his home has reeked of garlic, food grease, and cleaning chemicals, and the constant noise from guests and the endless humming of the air conditioners have caused him many sleepless nights. In 2015, the lawsuit was rejected by a Manhattan judge. How rude!
