Actress Jennifer Connelly is at the centre of a lawsuit over a leaky roof at her New York City home.

The Wimbledon star paid for repairs to her apartment when she bought the property but it began leaking again during a storm in 2010, causing $262,000 (£154,000) worth of damage.

Editors at the website report bosses of the company want a judge to order the actress to settle the bill if they are blamed for the leak.
