LENNY KRAVITZ is being sued after a leaking toilet allegedly caused “catastrophic” damage to a neighbour’s apartment in NEW YORK.

Kravitz is accused of causing over $300,000 (£166,000) of damage to retired Joel Disend’s home in Manhattan.

Insurance company Amica Mutual claimed in court papers that Kravitz supposedly allowed “a commode to become blocked, clogged and congested with various materials”, reports the BBC.

Amica Mutual said costs amounted to $333,849.77 to repair the damage to the apartment below Kravitz’s. The case was filed at Manhattan’s state Supreme Court last week (October 20).

Kravitz owns a 6,000-square-foot duplex in the building, where [a][/a] is also a tenant.
