Neighbors Of Celebrities Reveal Who It Sucks To Live Next To
Many people dream about having a famous celebrity as their neighbor. After all, you'd be regularly invited to lavish, star-studded parties, and they might even ask you to house-sit for them when they go off to film the next big blockbuster.

Sharing a wall with Madonna sounds like a maddening experience, at least according to Madonna's neighbor. Karen George first filed a lawsuit against Madonna in 2009 for using her apartment as a rehearsal space.
Madonna and George were embroiled in this lawsuit for two years, with George trying to sue the singer for "blaring music, stomping and shaking walls." In 2011, Madonna finally moved her rehearsal space to a real studio.
