Marisa Tomei is facing a lawsuit over allegations a leaky water pipe at her New York City apartment caused damage to her neighbours' homes.
Insurance companies representing residents at the building in Manhattan's Greenwich Village have filed suit against the actress alleging her "negligence" led to a leak in 2010 which caused more than $128,000 (£80,000) in damage to other properties.
The apartments which were allegedly damaged include a home owned by Hairspray director John Waters.
The lawsuit was filed at a court in Manhattan earlier this week (beg30Jan12), according to the Associated Press.
