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.
It turns out the reality of the situation is far from this picturesque ideal. Contrary to popular belief, there are a surprising amount of stars you wouldn't want to live next to.
The worst celebrities to live next to pull all kinds of insane stunts that would test the patience of even the most gracious neighbors. Whether they're waving firearms around in your face, threatening to sleep with your pets, or whipping about the neighborhood at dangerously high speeds, you'll be glad your neighborly issues don't extend beyond poor recycling habits.

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.
