Faye Dunaway faces eviction in NYC lawsuit

Posted on

Faye Dunaway will be packing up her Oscar and moving out if her Manhattan landlord has his way. The New York Times reports that Dunaway’s landlord filed a lawsuit yesterday alleging that Dunaway does not live in her rent-stabilized apartment on New York City’s Upper East Side. Instead, the landlord (who is unnamed in court papers) insists that Dunaway’s son, Liam Dunaway O’Neill, lives in the one-bedroom walk-up while Dunaway maintains her actual residence in California. New York’s rent stabilization rules require tenants to live in the apartment they are renting as a primary residence, not as a second home.

Dunaway’s eviction would allow her landlord to increase the rent. She currently pays $1,048.72 per month in a neighborhood where a comparable apartment runs $2,318 on average. Dunaway is set to report to Civil Court on Aug. 11.
