Actress Brooke Shields has apparently angered her neighbours due to the renovation work at her New York home.

The star has commissioned extensive changes to be made to her $5.6 million home in the city’s West Village area, but builders are said to be making so much noise and mess, other residents are threatening to move out, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“They start construction at 6 a.m. every morning, and people are outraged. This has been going on for months, and people in surrounding buildings are threatening their property managers that they’ll move out if it doesn’t stop,” said a neigbhour.

The tenant added that complaints to construction workers have been dismissed.

A group of residents reportedly confronted the renovation team but were told: “If you have a problem, take it up with Brooke Shields.”

The building management, which leases many local apartments, has refused to comment on the troubles reported by the residents. The neighbours have also complained that the renovation has caused the sidewalk near the star’s home to be closed.

Despite the complaints, Shields has defended herself, saying she has a permit and the works are legal and are “up to code every step of the way”.

“They truly apologise about the noise or any inconvenience and hope more than anybody to have it finished as soon as possible,” her representative said.

Actress Brooke Shields says being famous is like a “drug” because it gives such great highs.

The 44-year-old beauty spent much of her childhood acting and modelling and says being famous gives a kick, reports fashion.ie.

“It’s a high like you can’t imagine. It’s like a drug,” she said.

Hollywood actress Brooke Shields is reportedly facing a $10,000 tax bill after US officials accused her of falling behind with her payments.

Executives at America’s Internal Revenue Service (IRS) filed a federal tax lien Dec 31 last year, alleging the actress and her husband Chris Henchy owe $4,391.70 in unpaid taxes from 2004, reports imdb.com.

Hollywood actress Brooke Shields says she really hoped that late pop legend Michael Jackson would jump out of his coffin while she spoke during his memorial service.

The actress fought hard to contain her grief when she gave an emotional speech at the public event held at the Los Angeles Staples Center to commemorate the King of Pop’s life following his death from acute propofol intoxication last June and hoped he’d come out alive of the box, reports newsblaze.com.

“Did you see me shaking? Well, they didn’t tell us that the coffin was going to be there. I thought – because there was a fantasy moment in my head – that he was going to jump out and start the concert,” she said.

Shields, 44, who befriended Jackson when she was 13 also revealed that she hadn’t been in touch with the “Thriller” hitmaker for a long time before his death, but often wanted to call him and offer her help.

“I had not only not spoken to him, I hadn’t seen him in years,” she said.

Asked if she had wanted to call him to offer her help, she said: “I did that, you know, 20 years ago. I mean the rhetoric didn’t change, you know, I did that way back when, but anyway, I did my best.”

The star was asked by Jackson’s mother Katherine to give a speech at the service, but she ignored the words she was asked to deliver in favour of giving a more personal account of their friendship during her seven-minute address.

“They had written me out something. But I wrote my own thing and just had to do my own thing. I felt honoured to be a part of it,” she said.
