Beyonce Pays Five Figure Settlement for "Disruption" in Hollywood Hills


Earlier this summer (in May), while filming the video for "Why Don't You Love Me" in the Hollywood Hills, Beyonce and crew apparently made quite the racket.  As you can surely imagine, making a music video is inherently loud, what with the production crew, singing, light crew, and then some, but the crew were sued by a Hollywood Hills resident for another reason: trespassing.
Phillip Markowitz was such a neighbor, having sued Beyonce and crew in May for being a "major disruption" and having trespassed onto his driveway.
Says Markowitz:
"I'm happy with the settlement, but this lawsuit shouldn't have happened in the first place. They set up on my property without asking and [the settlement] should send a notice to other production companies that they need to respect the rights of property owners.















Uh, seriously dude?  Beyonce and her crew would be welcome for free on most people's yards, let alone for a five figure settlement.  Get over yourself.

  3. Beyonce or not, you can't start shooting in my driveway without asking for my permission first. That *is* trespassing and that shitty ass diva and her crew should've known that.

  5. What the problem is?
    You can't just set up shit on someone's yard without permission or even notifying those who live there. Hollywood production companies don't have the right to just go film wherever the fuck they want, whenever the fuck they want. Sure, it's pretty cool to have Beyonce filming a music video in front of your house, but couldn't they have at least asked first?

  6. I can understand the setting up on his property without permission, but five figures is just money grabbing.

  12. 5 figures is not THAT BAD for some like that. Its cost of doing business and how much they would have paid to have covered their ass from lawsuits in the first place. interesting stuff though, keep it up bro
