Philadelphia 76ers Andrew Bynum (pictured) is reportedly warring with his former neighbors, Ramond and Cindy Beckett, and the situation is allegedly getting quite ugly. The NBA center is suing the couple, claiming they are violently racist thugs, while the couple is alleging that Bynum is a hood rat who was a nightmare to live next to, according to TMZ.
The lawsuit, which was filed in the L.A. County Superior Court, states that Bynum, who moved in to his Westchester, Calif., home some seven years ago, has been targeted by the Becketts who have given him the blues about his “profession, his race, his friends, his cars, and his taste in music.”
The 7’0″ center claims that his neighbors threw coins at his expensive Ferrari, which caused the paint to chip; banged on his house with “long sticks”; and have verbally attacked him about his taste in music.
According to TMZ, the Becketts fired back at Bynum’s allegations with a laundry list of complaints about him, saying that while Bynum was their neighbor he was:
— brandishing firearms in an attempt to intimidate them
— using drugs and allowing weed smoke to drift next door
— blasting loud, profane rap music (including the song “Currency” by Trina)
— blasting his video games at “window-shaking volumes”
— letting his dogs run loose through the neighborhood
— constantly racing his luxury cars at dangerous speeds
Of course, Bynum is denying all of the allegations that were put forth by his ex-neighbors.
