Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan is being sued by his Beverly Hills neighbors -- Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane and his wife, actress Rebecca Gayheart -- after a nasty 2011 storm sent a large eucalyptus tree that was on Corgan's property crashing into Dane and Gayheart's home. According to TMZ, they claim that Gayheart, who was nine months pregnant at the time, had to evacuate the house as it flooded and broken power lines came down through the roof.

In their lawsuit, which was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Dane alleges that Corgan was warned about the trees on his property and failed to take action.

Corgan told TMZ that was "patently untrue," adding that he was "horrified" when he learned about the fallen tree but never received any warning about it.

He also called the lawsuit "a shame," said he had other trees removed after the accident and called Dane and Gayheart "nice people."

The couple are seeking unspecified damages for "nuisance, negligence, and injunctive relief."
