In a statement that should come as a surprise to no one: an 18-year-old pop star with nearly unlimited resources and a penchant for the word “swag” makes for a loud neighbor. At least according to “Hit & Run” co-stars Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell, who live near Justin Bieber.
The pair were on “The View” today promoting their new film, and told the ladies that since Bieber began renting a house behind theirs things have been a bit crazier than usual.
“The music and the parties and the paparazzi, I mean, it’s like living in Lebanon now,” Shepard said (via People).
Not looking to rile up those suffering from Bieber Fever, Bell was more diplomatic, saying that while she couldn’t be 100 percent sure that Justin was behind the uptick in volume in their neighb, there’s definitely been a surge in noise since he set up shop.
“In his defense, I will say we don’t know the exact house the music is coming from,” Bell told the ladies. “We just know since he moved in, the music has been blaring.”
In other Bieber news, the Los Angeles City Attorney Office is set to file four misdemeanor charges – including following another vehicle too closely, reckless driving with the intent to capture pictures for commercial gain, reckless driving and failing to obey the lawful order of a peace officer – against paparazzo Paul Raef, who allegedly chased Bieber down Los Angeles’ 101 freeway last month.
