Pop Goes The News — Actress Jennifer Lawrence may be kicked out of the Montreal condo in which she had planned to spend the summer.
The condo board at the 12-floor luxury building on Sherbrooke Street West went to court last week to block Lawrence from living there while in the city shooting Darren Aronofsky’s new movie.
The application to terminate Lawrence’s tenancy will be heard July 15.
The third-floor unit was rented to the film’s production company for three months beginning June 1 at a whopping $30,000 per month by owners Jeffrey and Sharon Langleben.
The couple’s condo is listed for sale at nearly $2.8 million.
The board alleges that the short-term rental violates condo regulations because it’s for a period of less than 12 months and was rented for commercial purposes.
(The latter argument is unlikely to stand given that Jeffrey Langleben’s numbered company and his company Hardwater Shirts Inc. have been registered at the address for years.)
Residents complained Lawrence has an entourage that includes a bodyguard, a secretary, an assistant, and a driver.
Lawrence, 25, is starring in Aronofsky’s film — which has the working title Day 6 — with Michelle Pfeiffer, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and brothers Domhnall Gleeson and Brian Gleeson.
Cameras are scheduled to roll until mid-August.
Lawrence previously stayed in Montreal in the summer of 2013 while shooting X-Men: Days of Future Past and last summer while making X-Men: Apocalypse.
In 2010, she shot The House at the End of the Street in the Ottawa area.
