Justin Theroux is again accusing his neighbor of domestic violence.
The Leftovers actor, 48, told a New York Court that he’s heard violent threats coming from the home of his downstairs neighbors at his home in New York City‘s West Village amid the local lockdown in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The ex-husband of actress Jennifer Aniston and his neighbors – an attorney named Norman Resnicow and his wife Barbara – have been in and out of litigation since 2017, when The Girl on the Train actor filed a harassment suit against Norman Resnicow about renovations he was making to his home.

Theroux has past accused Resnicow of trespassing and spying on him in their ongoing rift.
As part of their legal problems, there is a restraining order in place about harassing witnesses in their case – a category which Barbara, 71, falls into, according to the actor.
Theroux told the court that he has recording of two incidents: Both on March 22, two days after Governor Andrew Cuomo put the state in lockdown.
First, Norman Resnicow locked Barbara out of the home because she wasn’t wearing a mash, Theroux told the court, and later was in a rage when he called her a ‘f***ing moron’ and ‘stupid woman.’

Theroux told the court Norman Resnicow faked like he wasn’t home when he called police on April 30 amid another incident. Theroux said he has audio that occurred days later, on May 3, he repeatedly vowed he would break her teeth if she tried to leave the home.
Resnicow said in the audio, according to the outlet: ‘I’ll break your teeth. No, you sit down in your f***ing seat. Sit down in your fucking seat and watch the show … sit down and shut up. You’re not going anywhere … You want broken teeth? I’ll break your f***ing teeth.”
The actor said that he’s been left with ‘anxiety that continues long after the incidents themselves have ended’ as result of Resnicow’s actions. He’s requested the court to hold Resnicow in contempt of the restraining order, which could lead to fines or jail sentences.
Resnicow told DailyMailTV in 2018 that he and Theroux were friendly at one time, until the actor ceased to care ‘about the people who live downstairs’.
Theroux and Aniston split in February of 2018 after more than two years of marriage.
