Actress Faye Dunaway named in New York eviction lawsuit

The Associated Press, Wednesday, August 3, 2011, 5:26am (PDT)
  • NEW YORK (AP) -- A New York landlord is suing Faye Dunaway, claiming the actress' rent-stabilized apartment is not her primary residence.

    The suit also names the actress' son, Liam Dunaway O'Neill, as a subtenant of the Manhattan apartment.

    The New York Times says the housing court suit was filed Tuesday.

    The suit says the "Bonnie & Clyde" actress owns a house in West Hollywood, Calif., and has her voter and car registrations there.

    Rent stabilization rules require tenants to use those apartments as a primary residence, not a second home.

    The suit says she pays $1,048 for the one-bedroom walk-up. The Times says similar apartments in that neighborhood rent for about twice that.

    The 70-year-old actress and her son didn't return calls seeking comment, and the landlord's lawyer declined to comment.
