Most people would be thrilled to have a celebrity move next door, but not all stars are exactly upstanding neighbors. In fact, in 2016 Justin Bieber was voted as the most hated celebrity neighbor — and other famous people have joined the ranks along with him.
For Justin, his “bad neighbor” behavior is notorious. His parties, loud music, and fast cars drove his Calabasas, CA neighbors crazy. In 2014, he even egged his neighbor’s house. He was charged with vandalism and ordered to pay $80,000 in restitution.
Even other celebs were fed up with Justin’s shenanigans. Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, who used to live next door to Justin in 2012, described the experience as living in a war zone.
“The music and the parties and the paparazzi, I mean, it’s like living in Lebanon now,” Dax said.
Even Shameless star Emmy Rossum described living next door to Justin as being “scary.”
“He has a ton of bodyguards there and they’re really scary,” she said on SiriusXM’s Sway in the Morning in 2015. “It was so surreal to me that I was like, ‘I am not going to go ask for a cup of sugar over there.'”
So it was no surprise in 2015 when Justin himself finally admitted that, because of his loud ways, he needed to find a home that was more reclusive and had less people living by who could complain about the noise.
“I don’t want neighbors!” he said in 2015. “I’m loud, I’m really loud. I’m gonna play my music really, really, really loud every night, I’m gonna play the drums. I’m gonna have a lot of people over, probably. And I can’t have neighbors, just because I don’t want to piss anyone off.”
