New York, Sept 14 : Fuming neighbours of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen at their quiet West Village block have complained that the twins have robbed the neighbourhood of its peacefulness.
Residents on West 13th Street are irritated by the tiny twins' "military presence," and called the fashionistas "two spoiled brats" who "change the character of the neighborhood" by posting security guards outside.
"They are disruptive, intrusive and totally disrespectful," the New York Post quoted one neighbour, as saying.
In May, The Post's Braden Keil reported the multimillionaires were renting two floors of a brownstone on West 13th for 12,000 dollars per month.
In fact, one source is has reported seeing the party princesses "piling out of their gas guzzlers in their little club outfits" in the wee hours.
The goons have even rousted residents of the building from their perches on the brownstone's stoop so the twins can climb the steps in privacy.
A block resident has revealed that two giant GMC Denali trucks are parked outside the townhouse every night, with hired security guards who keep the engines idling for hours at a time.
"You would think there was a government operation going on," said the resident.
"It is a peaceful, quiet street. Plenty of other celebrities around this block [Sarah Jessica Parker, Liv Tyler, Gisele Bundchen and Julianne Moore] are good neighbors and blend in with the neighborhood - but these two are invaders," the source added.
"The good news is that it's only a rentaland we all hope it's not a long-standing one," said the source.
A rep for the Olsens have denied that security has never asked anyone to leave the stoop.
"If there were significant issues, you would think that the neighbors would address Ashley or Mary-Kate directly, rather than calling the media," he said.
