Jones Accused Of Wrecking Flat

Eccentric Jamaican singer/actress GRACE JONES has been accused of wrecking an apartment she was renting in London's plush Chelsea Harbour district. The flat's owners ROSALIND and JOHN PRESTON lodged a complaint in a London court in May (06), claiming, "The defendant failed to deliver the property in a tenable state. Many of the fixtures were rendered unusable as a result of being impregnated with cigarette smoke." The former BOND girl allegedly left the GBP1.5 million ($2.7 million) two-bedroom apartment in need of repairs totalling a massive GBP16,700 ($30,060). The bill includes GBP6,400 ($11,520) worth of redecoration, GBP2,500 ($4,500) for replacing the bedroom curtains and GBP168 ($300) for new cutlery - the spoons were found with blackened undersides as if someone had held a flame under them. The SLAVE TO THE RHYTHM star, who was paying GBP40,000 ($72,000) a year in rent for the flat, moved into the property in November 2003. However, since moving out, Jones has yet to return the keys and the couple's lawyers have been unable to locate the singer to pursue damages. Jones' agent, MICHAEL SCHWEIGER, denied the charge saying, "I have never heard of any problems with the flat. As far as I know she left it in good standing."
