Jennifer Connelly is being sued for allowing her roof to ''fall into disrepair''.

The 43-year-old actress' New York loft apartment suffered extensive damage costing $262,000 following a big rainstorm in October 2010 and her insurance company have filed a claim against the construction company who worked on the roof in the 1860s former warehouse building.

However, according to TMZ, the roofers have filed a counter-claim in which they insist the problems were the actress' fault as she had allowed it to fall into disrepair and if a jury orders them to pay the insurance company, they want a judge to make Jennifer - who raises sons Kai, 17, and Stellan, 13, and daughter Agnes, three, with husband Paul Bettany - pay them back.

Despite the legal dispute, the 'Noah' actress insists it is nothing to do with her.

She told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column: ''It's not correct. There's no story, there's no lawsuit. It's misinformation.''

Her spokesperson added: ''[The actress] put a claim on [her] insurance, and the roof was fixed, and that was that. She had nothing to do with the lawsuit.''
