Daphne Guinness’ Bath Lawsuit Dismissed
Her bathing habits caused neighbours “emotional stress”.
Daphne Guinness is known for her outlandish ways in the arena of fashion. It should come as no surprise, then, that she also likes herself a good soak in the tub (you'd need it after wearing those gravity-defying shoes!). Karim and Tina Samii, who lived below Daphne's home in New York’s Stanhope Hotel, sued their neighbour back in 2010 for water damage caused by her overflowing bathtub. The couple sought a whopping $1 million in compensation for both damages and the “mental anguish and emotional stress” caused. It was a splashy sob story, but the judge seemed unconvinced, ruling today that the heiress will not be held accountable for any emotional stress experienced. She will, however, need to cover damage costs, though we doubt they will amount to a cool million.
