Mark Hoppus of blink-182 is suing his neighbour over a tree

It’s not quite the long-running feud between Jimmy Page and Robbie Williams, but it’s more rich people problems.

According to TMZ, Mark Hoppus is annoyed at a pine tree on the neighbour’s property that grown “too big” and has “obstructed” his view. He says that the size of the tree now violates local planning commission rules.

Apparently, a tree in that part of Beverly Hills can’t be taller than 15 feet. A few years ago, that neighbour was asked to remove other trees that had grown beyond that height. They’ve now grown back and…well, there’s the problem.

The lawsuit alleges that the neighbour (who remains unidentified in all the stories I’ve seen) has refused/denied requests to do something about the trees. He’s resorted to taking things to court.

Just thought you should know.
