Rebecca was pregnant at the time (yikes!). The beautiful couple is suing for nuisance, negligence and injunctive relief. They claim that Billy knew about the potential dangers of the tree prior to the storm.
Billy finally spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the lawsuit. “I was horrified when I learned about the tree falling during what was a massive storm, a storm with winds strong enough to uproot a 50 ft tree by its base! Thankfully no one was injured and after the tree was removed we brought in a expert who recommended other similar trees be removed, which we did immediately. The assertion that I was warned about these trees is patently untrue, and it's a shame they've taken that position because they are nice people.”
Do you think that Eric and Rebecca have a right to sue? Or do you feel bad for Billy?
Other than this one incident, we’re pretty sure Billy is the luckiest neighbor alive.
