New York - A lawsuit claims a leak from Marisa Tomei's New York City apartment has damaged the homes of two downstairs neighbours, including director John Waters.

The neighbours' insurance companies filed the suit this week in a Manhattan court. The suit says the My Cousin Vinny actress' "negligence" caused a September 2010 leak that left more than $128 000 in damage at the building in Manhattan's Greenwich Village.

The insurers' lawyer and representatives for the Academy Award-winning actress haven't responded to messages left on Thursday seeking comment.
