LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A man living across from a video shoot for Beyonce Knowles in the Hollywood Hills is suing the singer for nuisance and trespassing, claiming his privacy was invaded by unnecessary noise and crowds.
Court documents show Philip Markowitz filed the lawsuit seeking $25,000 on Friday in Los Angeles against Knowles, a liability company and Dina Ciccotello, a production coordinator for the video shoot for "Why Don't You Love Me."
Markowitz claims his expectations of privacy in his upscale neighborhood were "shattered" on March 26 when the crew came in the morning and didn't leave until 11 p.m., and that his driveway was repeatedly blocked.
Calls to Beyonce's publicists were not immediately returned.
