Hilary Duff At War With Selfish SoHo Neighbor
Hilary Duff recently took to Instagram to out her inconsiderate neighbor for some shady, disruptive behavior, and apparently got more than she bargained for.Last week, she posted this story where she pleads him to stop smoking cigarettes and weed all day long, and has gone on to state that living next door to Dieter Addison in her exclusive SoHo apartment has been nothing short of a nightmare.
“Hilary and her young son have been subjected to excessive secondhand smoke, latenight noise, garbage in the hallways, and an overall hazardous living environment from this man for months now,” her reps said. “She tried numerous times in polite ways to handle this situation including countless sessions with the landlords of the building. As every mother knows, protecting your kid has to come first and foremost and that is her primary goal. She reached a breaking point after a 15 hour work day and yet another sleepless night.”
The situation escalated when the police were called on Addison for smoking in the hallway, followed by an alleged physical altercation between him and Duff’s boyfriend, musician Matthew Koma (which Koma vehemently denies).
In the aftermath of all this, and specifically of the allegations that Addison smoked weed in the apartment, he’s contacted a lawyer and made several statements regarding the matter:
“I live with a sober companion, I’ve been sober for months now. I smoke a ton of cigarettes, don’t get me wrong, but this is a smoking building, which is why I signed the lease here.”
He goes on to claim that Koma did in fact try to punch him in the face, and it’s actually Duff’s family that’re the nightmare neighbors. At this point, it’s not really clear what’ll happen next, but other neighbors of her Wooster St. apartment have come forward to back Duff up in her claims of excessive noise and cigarette smoke.
No matter whose side you’re on, it’s hard not to sympathize with the victims of nightmarish neighbors and inconsiderate people. I guess the lesson here is: don’t mess with Lizzie McGuire...she apparently takes no shit.
