Depp Sues Over 'Ruined' Views

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN star Johnny Depp is suing West Hollywood, Los Angeles, for authorising construction which will obstruct views from his Hollywood Hills mansion. The actor, who divides his time between France and Los Angeles, is furious over plans to build a massive retail complex on Sunset Boulevard that would ruin the views from his $5.4 million (GBP3 million) estate. Depp alleges in the lawsuit that the city violated environmental-quality laws by approving a development of retail shops, a restaurant and a parking lot beneath his gated estate. He claims that the project would block the view his two children, LILY-ROSE, six, and Jack, four, enjoy while playing outside the home. Backers of the development dispute Depp's claims, arguing he has been very vocal about raising his children in France, where he lives with French actress and singer Vanessa Paradis. A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge ruled against Depp last year (05). The case is being appealed on his behalf by his sister, CHRISTI DEMBROWSKI, who is also his personal assistant and president of his film production company. According to developer JOSEPH EMRANI, the dispute has delayed the start of the $10 million (GBP5.7 million) project for over a year.

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWN!!!Another spoiled selfish Hollywood leftist anti-Bush WANKER is whining about life in the real world. I remember when this sad little treasonous prick was very vocal about wanting to live forever in the gutless snail/frog eating America hating s**thole of Europe. Now hopefully poor little diddums Johnny will have his little equally spoiled kiddies see how the real world works on his rare sojourns back to the country that made his fortune for him. The rest of us dont have the power/money/fame etc to stop development, let alone get a story publicised about how our lives will be ruined whilst other people have employment prospects.These celebrity arseholes have an arrogance that is unbelievable. I HOPE THEY BUILD A HUGE HOLLYWOOD MOSQUE RIGHT IN HIS LINE OF SIGHT. Then he can celebrate the wonders of true diversity!!PISS OFF BACK TO FRANCE JOHNNY BOY - YOU LOST YOUR (MORAL) RIGHT TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE USA A LONG TIME AGO!!!

But the worst part is that I'm going to lose my view when I use my telescope to peer into his bedroom and watch him use toys on himself.He likes his toys in black. And very large.

hollywood and john in san diago your comments are completely bollox, why shouldnt he complain that his views will be ruined, he has paid a fortune to live there (a fortune that HE made from his own hardwork and dedication) and anyone else famous or not would surely complain too. I say go for it JD and come on guys does America really need more malls?

Johnny was misquoted and he took the time to explain the situation.You must not have been listening.I agree with Johnny 110%.The enviroment has been destroyed but you Bush freaks don't care about planet earth do you.All you see is dollar signs.The reason Johnny lives in France is because his lady Vanessa wants to live there.He is willing to put his career second to hers to make her happy.That's my kind of guy.I think it would be a shame to ruin the view from Johnnys's place.Put the mall some where else.
