AceShowbiz - After igniting the anger of many people for the gruesome Donald Trump decapitated photo, Kathy Griffin recently angered her neighbor. Jeffrey Mezger, the CEO of KB Home, lashed out at the comedienne after she and her boyfriend called Los Angeles police to report an hours-long noise disturbance.
In an audio of the incident which took place on Saturday, September 16, Mezger called Griffin a "c**t" and "f***ing bald d**e" in the expletive-laden tirade. "Let's declare war, a**hole, 'cause we got a lot to go for. Let's bring it on, you b***h," he said. He also noted that President Trump "kind of put the heat" on her.
The audio, which was captured by security cameras, was provided to The Huffington Post by Griffin's boyfriend Randy Bick who lives with Griffin in the gated community. Mezger, who has been the CEO and chairman of KB Home since 2006, lives next to Griffin with his wife.
Bick said he called the LAPD late Saturday after hours of excessive party noise, which involved some children, from the Mezger backyard. Bick was speaking with police when Mezger was recorded on the security cameras saying, "Hey Randy, go f**k yourself. Seriously? You call on my grandkids at 9 o'clock? You're not even the f***ing owner."
Following the release of the audio recording, a spokesperson for KB Home says in a statement, "Mr. Mezger regrets losing his temper over a supposed noise complaint involving his three young grandchildren in his swimming pool around 8 P.M. on Saturday, while they were being supervised by their mother and grandmother." It adds, "He apologizes for the language he used, as it does not reflect who he is or what he believes."
The spokesperson says the audio recording appears to have been edited, but admits that it's Mezger speaking in the recording. The spokesperson also claims that a series of previous incidents involving he, Griffin and Bick led to the most recent heated exchange. According to Mezger, this is not the first time that the police have been called by Griffin and Bick for noise complaints.
Mezger says that while the police took no legal action during the latest incident, they made his 4, 5 and 6-year old grandchildren feel uncomfortable. "They were not screaming, they were just playing, with their mother and grandmother supervising," the spokesperson says.
