He’s disturbing MySpace!
The former co-president of the social media site MySpace has sued his venture capitalist neighbor for $3 million, charging that the moneyman is making “excessive, unreasonable and intrusive noise” in their fancy Tribeca condo building.
Jason Hirschhorn says in his suit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court that Robbert Vorhoff and his wife, Jennifer Vorhoff, have “stonewalled” his complaints about their loud banging that shakes his ceiling.
Hirschhorn even hired an acoustics expert who determined in October 2017 that the noise was coming from the Vorhoffs’ sixth-floor condo, which is above the former MySpace honcho’s apartment.
“The noises not only are loud, but are sporadic and unpredictable. The ‘startle effect’ caused by noise that occurs without warning is more than just a matter of disturbance. It is a known human response … that can increase pulse rate and cause stress. This also constitutes a danger to health,” the techie charged in papers filed late Tuesday.
Robbert Vorhoff allegedly admitted after receiving the acoustic report that his kids were “running on their heels,” but the noise continues.
Vorhoff, a principal at General Atlantic LLC, and his wife bought the sixth-floor condo at 169 Hudson St. for $4.9 million in 2012, according to a report.
Hirschhorn, who had a brief run as co-president of MySpace as it lost money in 2010, says his efforts to reduce the noise have been stymied in part due to Jennifer Vorhoff’s ties to the condo board.
