Loads of 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.
Well, 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 have sex with your pets, or whipping about the neighborhood at dangerously high speeds, you'll be glad that your neighborly issues don't extend beyond poor recycling habits.

In 2005, a far more drug-addled Lyonne than we're used to seeing got into an argument with her neighbor, during which she threatened to molest their dog. On top of that, she pounded on her neighbor's door, entered the house, and pulled a mirror off the wall.
Contrary to what American Pie might have led Lyonne to believe, most people won't burst out laughing when you make plans to have sex with their pet.

Justin Bieber sounds like an absolute nightmare of a neighbor. Not only does he regularly throw massive parties, he also has a penchant for driving sports cars recklessly fast all around his residential neighborhood.
On top of all that, in 2014 Bieber got pinned for egging his neighbor's house. Well, we say house, but it was really a multi-million dollar mansion. Bieber was said to have caused roughly $20,000 in damages to the mansion, and had to pay $80,000 in restitution for his yolky crimes.

Sharing a wall with Madonna sounds like a maddening experience, at least according to Madonna's downstairs 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.
