Bob Dylan is allegedly ignoring his neighbours' complaints over the stench coming from a portable toilet on his property
Bob Dylan's neighbours claim a portable toilet on the singer's property is releasing toxic fumes.
The legendary singer-songwriter has allegedly ignored nearby residents' calls to remove the outhouse from his Malibu home, with one family claiming the stench is so bad it has made them sick.
Cindy Emminger, who claims her eight-year-old son David Jr. has been made ill by the smell, told the Los Angeles Times newspaper: "It started in September. I'd go into the front yard and get nauseous. I couldn't figure out at first where the smell was coming from.
"Both David and I have allergies and are sensitive to chemicals. I finally noticed that they had moved the porta-potty directly in front of my front door."
Cindy and her husband have installed five industrial fans in an effort to allay the smell.
Her husband David fumed: "It's a scandal - 'Mr. Civil Rights' is killing our civil right."
Malibu officials are investigating the complaint.
Bob is yet to comment on the allegations.
