Remember Puddle of Mudd, the 90s rock band? Their frontman, Wes Scantlin, is hardly a sweetheart, as it turns out. In 2013, he was arrested when one of his neighbors, musician Sasha Gradiva, called the police after Scantlin destroyed part of her patio with a buzzsaw.
His reason for it? He claimed the patio was encroaching on part of his property. Why the buzzsaw? Well, to that, he merely replied: “It’s called a sledgehammer, dawg.” As if that’s even an answer. The matter was solved with the help of a needed restraining order.
Lindsay Lohan Has Set a Contract Precedent
With Lohan's famous antics and run-ins with the law, it's surprising she's ever been able to complete a single project.
Take the filming of "Liz&Dick" for example. Producer Larry Thompson said that he had to prepare for almost anything while drafting her contract. It got to a point where the document included clauses in case she got involved in a car accident, violated her parole, or posed other unexpected challenges.
Natasha Lyonne Isn't a Dog Person
Natasha Lyonne is no stranger to legal problems. She's been on probation for drinking and driving, and she's failed to appear in court, so "nice" isn't the first word that pops to mind. In 2004, The "Russian Doll" actress skipped a court hearing issued after she had threatened her neighbor...'s dog.
Apparently, she went into a fit of rage, burst into her neighbor's apartment, and pulled the mirror off the wall. She eventually left right after announcing to her neighbor that she was going to wreak havoc on his dog. We don't know what caused the rage fit, but we don't think the dog had anything to do with it.
Sylvester Stallone Had a Thing for Water
This happened a while back, but how can we ever forget the time Stallone got sued and lost? In 1985, Vin Scully, the famous Dodgers broadcaster, sued Stallone, who lived next to him, for causing water damage to his Pacific Palisades estate.
The damage was done after Stallone's landscaping crew structurally altered an entire hill that separated the two properties. According to the L.A. Superior Court, the change in the hill resulted in a diverged stream of water that ran right into Scully's home. The damage supposedly cost $106,000, but the jury put partial blame on Scully and lowered it to $ 69,000.
Sharon Stone's Basic Instincts Aren't Very Nice
When working with Sharon Stone on the set of "Golden Boy," director Pupi Avati thought he was in for a nice, professional time with one of Hollywood's biggest A-listers. But he was wrong. He spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the experience and spared no words.
Apparently, negotiating with Stone over her contract "bordered on ridiculousness," with the movie star believing that Italy (the filming location) was a third-world country. When she did appear on set, Stone would often leave it unannounced, only for the production to be contacted by her manager with further demands. Stone has since denied the claims, but she is the only one to do so.
