James Belushi Files Suit Against Actress Julie Newmar

LOS ANGELES (Nov. 6) - James Belushi has sued his next-door neighbor, actress Julie Newmar, accusing her of a "campaign of harassment" to drive him from his home.

In a lawsuit filed Nov. 2, the 50-year-old actor claims Newmar vandalized his estate by destroying a fence and landscaping. He also contends she bad-mouthed him to neighbors and friends, spied on his family and caused a nuisance by playing loud music directed at his backyard.

"Newmar has engaged in a malicious and premeditated campaign to prevent and destroy Belushi's quiet peace," the suit says.

A telephone number for Newmar, who played Catwoman in the 1960s television series "Batman," was not immediately available. A call to Belushi's lawyers was not returned Saturday night.

The suit seeks an injunction against the actress as well as damages of at least $4 million plus attorneys' fees, saying her actions caused emotional distress and harmed Belushi's reputation and career.

No, John is James' dead brother who was a big star on SNL back in the late 70s and starred in Animal House.

James, John's younger brother, has his own show on ABC called "According to Jim."

No, but he was the one with the talent. He died a while back. Jim Belushi rode John's coattails to stardom and has done well with it - a bunch of movie roles and his own sitcom.

His best role will forever be: Red Heat :D
