Hugh Grant has reportedly clashed with his neighbour, after claiming the man’s dog urinated outside his £3million London home. According to The Sun, the 55-year-old actor ranted at the dog owner, telling him his dog should relieve himself ‘in the gutter’.

Speaking to The Sun, Justin O’Brien said Grant told him he was sick and tired of his miniature schnauzer, named Buddy, ‘s*** and p***” all over his street.’ However O’Brien claims Buddy aimed at the pavement rather than towards Grant’s plush Chelsea property.

“I didn’t realise it was Hugh Grant at first. He was in a hoodie,” the 46-year-old told the newspaper. “When I asked, ‘Where should my dog p***?’ he replied ‘In the gutter’. I was a fan but not anymore.”

The actor later admitted to The Sun that he had been “a little rude” at 9am on Thursday and said he would apologise if he sees Mr O’Brien again. Last month Grant was honoured with the British Film Institute Fellowship award for his achievements in the film industry over the last 30 years.
