Heartache continues for Twilight star

More drama for Ashley Greene because not only did her apartment in West Hollywood's Granville Towers go up in flames, but she's also now facing a lawsuit from her neighbors.

The Twilight Saga actress' living room caught afire in March because she had unfortunately forgotten about a burning candle that caused flames to tear across her apartment

The result was devastating for the star because not only was her home damaged, but she also lost her beloved little puppy Mario during the incident.

Greene may be trying to move on with her life, but there are four people who are desperately trying to ensure she does not forget whose fault the blaze was. According to Greene's neighbors, living next to her is complete hell and four residents are claiming she has not only destroyed her own apartment, but also turned the once beautiful historic building into a "disruptive construction zone."

Among the plaintiffs is the doorman of the building Adrian Mayorga, who is alleging he sustained injury during the blaze while trying to get residents to safety.

Mayorga allegedly suffered "exhaustion, dehydration and smoke inhalation and was also hospitalized," according to legal documents obtained by TMZ.

Apparently, the Butter beauty has never even bothered to apologize to her neighbors for the dangerous blaze and for causing them severe discomfort in their own homes.

Neighbor John Luciano told the New York Post, "Living next to Ashley was pure hell. It was like living next to Studio 54, with people coming and going at all hours of the night. We would have had more peace and quiet living next to Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller."

The group's lawyer Keith Davidson stated, "My clients have been through hell."

Everyone makes mistakes and it's evident that the fire was not intentional and had even been ruled accidental in late March. We can only imagine the distress that Greene is going though now and we hope these legal matters are resolved swiftly.
