Actress, Husband Sued Over Sale of Home

January 15, 1998

An Encino couple who purchased a home last year from actress Kirstie Alley and her estranged husband have alleged in a lawsuit that the entertainers failed to disclose that the house was in the flight path of the Van Nuys Airport.

As a result, Jack and Katherine White contend in their Los Angeles Superior Court suit, they have been subjected to "loud and obnoxious" noise conditions that created a nuisance, reduced their property value and "negatively affected the quiet use and enjoyment of [the] property."

According to the lawsuit, Alley, star of the television show "Veronica's Closet," and her estranged husband, Richard Parker Jr.--better known by his stage name, Parker Stevenson--should have disclosed the noise condition when they entered a sales contract with the Whites in March 1997. Instead, Alley and Parker allegedly misrepresented the property as free of neighborhood nuisances.

The Whites are seeking unspecified damages from Alley and Parker.
