Calabasas, CA – Police officers reportedly showed up at Kanye West’s Calabasas home on Sunday (August 18). According to TMZ, a few of his neighbors called 911 to complain about the construction noise coming from his property.
The neighbors reportedly said construction crews were working on several dome structures for more than 12 hours on Saturday (August 17). While the the city allows construction from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. local time on Saturdays, it doesn’t allow Sunday construction.
Evidently, ‘Ye didn’t get the memo.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies responded at 7:30 p.m. that evening and found a construction crew working on one of the domes.
Kanye created the prototypes to use as models for his vision of an “egalitarian community,” but his crews didn’t get proper permits. Consequently, he was cited for violating the building code.
The G.O.O.D. Music boss was given the option to either get the proper permits or dismantle the four structures by September 15.
He decided to rip them all down, which contributed to the extra noise. The crews stopped working once police told them to and the matter was resolved peacefully.
