The bitter war between Hollywood couple Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux and their elderly neighbour Norman Resnicow has intensified.
Resnicow has previously given DailyMailTV a tour of his apartment amid growing tension between the lawyer and his famous neighbours over renovation works.
Round two! The bitter war between Hollywood couple Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux and their neighbour Norman Resnicow has intensified as the pair accuse Resnicow of spying
In new court documents seen by Grazia, Justin has claimed that Resnicow has been spying on their Greenwich Village home, and even taking photos through their windows.
Resnicow was caught on camera filming from his deck as builders worked on Theroux and Aniston's home last year.
According to insiders, the battle with Resnicow has been causing tension between Jennifer and Justin, with the actress, who gave a tour of her stunning LA home to Architectural Digest this month, now reportedly refusing to spend any time at their East coast base.

'It's causing a lot of tension between them and Jen's barely travelling to New York any more,' said a source. 'She's an incredibly private person and hates the feeling that she might be spied on. It is a huge sticking point for her and Justin.'
In October Resnicow gave DailyMailTV an exclusive tour of their apartment building while lashing out at the actor over his million dollar home renovations and for taking over the building's basement with 'junk' he has collected off the street.
The 69-year-old lawyer was left fuming when Theroux sued him for $350,000 for interfering in his renovations through bullying and intimidation.

Resnicow then filed his own lawsuit against Theroux in August for harassment, bad construction and his yowling dogs, demanding he pay to soundproof his apartment.
The battle went into another round after Theroux filed a response, in which he included a photo of what he claims shows a pyjama-clad Resnicow harassing builders on his property.
In an interview with DailyMailTV that aired Thursday, Resnicow said he and Theroux used to be friends years ago but their relationship soured when the actor stopping giving a 'damn about the people who live downstairs'.
'I had been particularly close to Justin in the building,' he said. But Resnicow claims Theroux has now become cavalier about the whole building and even now takes up basement storage with what he calls 'Justin's junk'.
He showed DailyMailTV multiple storage boxes stacked up in the basement labeled with Theroux's name.
Theroux, however, has denied all the allegations leveled against him by his disgruntled neighbor.

In the latest court documents, Theroux's lawyer said: 'Resnicow is observed compulsively involving himself in his neighbors' business, including just days ago when he literally climbed out of his second-floor window wearing pajamas and brazenly trespassed onto Mr Theroux's property to confront Mr Theroux's workers.'
The bitter dispute between the neighbors is said to have escalated when Resnicow asked his famous neighbor to soundproof his apartment in his million dollar renovation due to the noise.
'When someone is doing a million dollar plus renovation and you've been hearing stuff for years, come on,' Resnicow said.
Resnicow had demanded that Theroux provide funds of up to $30,000 for sound-proofing, according to court documents.
He claims he has suffered from leakage and mold ever since Theroux started his apartment renovations.
While Resnicow admits he has never spoken to Jennifer, he claims she looks miserable every time she is pictured leaving the apartment.
He added that he hoped her love of Los Angeles would keep them both away.
Mr. Theroux' spokesperson was not pleased with the house tour, telling DailyMailTV, 'Norman Resnicow’s continued attempts to badger Mr. Theroux are disturbing. Inviting a television crew into a residential building that is home not just to Mr. Theroux, but to a number of other private residents, further validates why Mr. Theroux had to bring this nuisance lawsuit in the first place.'
'In the end, Mr. Resnicow’s campaign of harassment makes the rope of liability for him even longer.'
