California is no stranger to droughts and the resulting water conservation that is necessary to make sure everyone has enough. Unfortunately, there is a group of elites who think they are above the rules when it comes to this, simply because of their celebrity status.
According to the Daily Mail, a multitude of well-known A-listers have received notices warning them that they are not playing by the rules, and are now being forced to install restriction devices. The letters also noted that the celebs have used over 150% of their allotted water several times in the past year.
Sylvester Stallone, Kevin Hart, the Kardashians and Dwayne Wade are among those who are accused of over-using water as California faces the third year of its drought since Governor Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency in 2021.
According to the report, these restriction devices will “reduce the amount of water used during showers and for sprinklers,” however these famous faces are not the only ones getting this treatment. They are merely some of the nearly 20,000 people in the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District who seemingly can’t abide by the rules, and will also be made to implement the restriction devices on their properties.
Kim Kardashian specifically is reported to have used 232,000 gallons OVER the specified cap in the month of June. Her sister Kourtney was also notified, being told that she had exceeded her cap by 101,000 gallons. Many of the homes in question contain sprawling lawns and pools, which likely take a lot of water to maintain.
Stallone and his wife were accused of using 230,000 gallons over what they were supposed to as well. The actor’s attorney Marty Singer claims the numbers are being misrepresented, and that the majority of the water goes to maintaining the hundreds of trees on the property.
“They have more than 500 mature trees on the property, including innumerable fruit trees as well as pine trees,’ Singer explained. “Absent adequate watering, in all likelihood they would die. That could result in dead or damaged trees falling on my client’s property or neighboring properties.”
“My client has been addressing the situation responsibly and proactively. They have let grasses die, and other areas are watered by a drip irrigation system. They also notified the city regarding the mature trees, and are awaiting an inspection and further instruction from the city about how to proceed,” he continued.
“I am confident that all of the larger properties in the area have similar issues. I, therefore, trust that my client will not be unfairly singled out in the story because he is a famous person,” the statement concluded.
