Following new reports that the singer allegedly attacked her bodyguard on Tuesday night, neighbors near the $1.4 million rental property Winehouse has lived in for the last four months tell U.K. media they are tiring of her late-night antics and the paparazzi presence outside the apartment.
“This place used to be a nice, quiet area until Amy moved in,” said a neighbor who has videotaped some of the disturbances to the U.K.’s Daily Mirror. “She’s nothing but trouble and every night she is partying. If she’s not inviting friends around to live it up, she is starting fights.”
The latest incident allegedly occurred as Winehouse returned to her North London home from a Tuesday evening at the pub, after a session at a London rehab clinic, according to the Daily Mail and The Sun.
Photos show the singer grabbing the face of a man believed to be one of her security guards, and pushing him backward while he winces.
A Winehouse pal explains that it was “pandemonium” outside her house as she returned from a night out, and that she didn’t realize he was one of her bodyguards.
“Amy thought it was someone else blocking her way as she tried to get back into her home,” says the friend. “There was lots of pushing and shoving and cameras going off and he was just trying to clear the way. She has apologized to him.”
A rep for the singer had no comment.
It is the second time this week the performer has reportedly been involved in a physical altercation – and her fourth in two weeks.
The other three incidents? Earlier this week, Winehouse allegedly attacked a fan inside a pub and outside her home. And on June 28, she allegedly scuffled with another fan at the Glastonbury music festival.
