She’s an older Zoomer who’s never been called quiet or shy.
But now Joan Rivers is being accused of going over the top as building president at her New York condominium. So she’s being sued.
Elizabeth Hazan claims the 80 year-old queen of catty comedy cut her cable and filled her door locks with glue, after Hazan got behind in her apartment fees.
In her 15 million dollar U-S lawsuit, the 41 year-old Hazan says it’s a personal thing, insisting that Rivers never liked her since Hazan moved into the building in 2005.
She calls Rivers the most mean woman you can imagine, saying “her problem with me is that I’m young – she’s old; I’m beauiful – she’s ugly.”
Rivers’ lawyer says the dispute with Hazam is over 200 thousand dollars in unpaid fees and two prior actions.
Rivers has lived in the penthouse in the 62nd Street building for 25 years.
