Tub trouble for heiress Daphne Guinness in NY suit

Socialite and fashion guru Daphne Guinness is awash in trouble with her New York City neighbors.

The beer heiress' downstairs neighbors sued her this week. They say she's repeatedly let her bathtub overflow and flood a bathroom in their Fifth Avenue apartment. She didn't immediately respond to a message left with an assistant Wednesday night.

Neighbors Karim and Tina Samii are demanding at least $1 million in damages _ plus a court order barring Guinness from using her tub until she has work done to stop the washouts.

The Samiis say they've endured three floods in the past two years, plus a leak caused by renovations to Guinness' apartment.

Guinness is known for her adventuresome take on haute couture, often including sky-high platform heels.
