Four-time Grammy Award winner Lenny Kravitz is being sued for more than $300,000 by an insurance company that claims the rocker let his toilet overflow into a neighbor’s apartment, causing “catastrophic water damage.”
The suit, filed in a New York City court and made public on Friday, claims a commode in Kravitz’s lavish Manhattan condominium “became blocked, clogged and congested with various materials” on Aug. 1 and that the musician’s “negligence and carelessness” were solely to blame.
The Amica Mutual Insurance Company is suing Kravitz to recover $333,850 it says it paid out to the recording artist’s neighbor, a former insurance executive, for damage to his home.
Kravitz’s other neighbors in the trendy building in New York’s SoHo district include rock star Courtney Love.
Representatives for Kravitz, known for such hits as “Fly Away” and a cover of “American Woman,” could not immediately be reached for comment.
