Tyra Banks Irks Neighbors With Incessant Noise

A storm is brewing in a posh Manhattan apartment building where residents say the TV star's remodeling causes too much ruckus

Between writing a novel, hosting two TV shows (The Tyra Show, America's Next Top Model) and providing weekly fodder for Joel McHale on The Soup, you'd have to wonder where Tyra Banks, 36, also finds the time to remodel her new apartments (yes, plural).

Well, guess who's really wishing she didn't have the time: her new neighbors! According to The New York Post, Banks "has undertaken extensive renovations" to combine four apartments she purchased (for a reported $10 million) in a downtown New York City building.

However, turning four adjacent apartments into a single home is apparently one very noisy endeavor. Allegedly, Banks' neighbors recently called the police to complain. While there's been no official statement from Banks on the issue, one high-profile (privacy-loving) neighbor has reportedly been mum on the matter: Leonardo DiCaprio!

This isn't the first time Banks has been accused of being impolite to those around her. Jezebel.com reported late last year that the talk-show host failed to mention to her staff that she was pulling the plug on her daytime series, and instead, let them find out via the web!
