Minnie Driver Paint-Bombed Her Neighbors’ Home, Lawsuit Claims

Couple says that “Good Will Hunting” actress vandalized their property and screamed obscenities at them

Maybe the next “Neighbors” movie should draw its inspiration from Minnie Driver.

The “Good Will Hunting” actress is being sued by a couple who claim that she has made their lives a living hell since they decided to buy property next to her Los Angeles home.

Daniel and Mary Lou Perelmutter claim that they purchased the property in 2014 with the intention of building a home on it, only to have Driver harass them and stymie their efforts.

According to the complaint, filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Driver derailed construction efforts by obstructing the entrance to the property and disabling the gate.

It gets worse, the lawsuit alleges. After construction continued, the Perelmutters say, Driver began “verbally harassing” them and the construction workers, screaming “all manner of obscenities.”

The suit also alleges that the actress speeds her car toward the construction workers and the Perelmutters, and threw “baby food jars filled with black paint against the walls of the home.”

A spokesperson for Driver has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.

The Perelmutters claim that they have suffered “severe emotional distress” along with “sleeplessness, severe anxiety and depression” as the result of Driver’s “unjustified and abhorrent conduct.”

Alleging assault, trespass and private nuisance, the suit is seeking unspecified damages.
