The suit also claims that there are untrimmed trees on Garnett's property, worth a reported $9.5 million, that are blocking the view of the neighbor's home.
According to the report, Garnett did not obtain the sufficient building permits when he started remodeling his house this year. It even claims that Garnett lied to Malibu city officials about what he was going to do on the property.
