Sharon Stone sues over botched renovations

Sharon Stone is suing a construction company over botched renovations.

The 'Basic Instinct' actress hired Zuma Canyon Construction in 2013 to preside over a major remodelling of her Beverly Hills house, but is now taking legal action over the allegedly shoddy work.

The 57-year-old actress took on the company to redo her master bedroom, master bathroom, kitchen and powder room at an estimated cost of $225,000, but she claims in her lawsuit that they messed up a lot of the tasks.

According to TMZ, Sharon is upset that the controls for her heated flooring were installed in the shower, meaning they were exposed to water intrusion.

And she was also left with leaks after the floor of the shower sustained a puncture.

The 'Casino' star also claimed the contractor didn't obtain city permits to carry out much of the work.

She is suing the company and other subcontractors for unspecified damages.

In 2001, Sharon suffered a brain aneurism and recently spoke about the long-lasting side effects the condition - a bulging of the blood vessels - caused.

She said: "I had a massive nine-day brain haemorrhage...

"I lost some of my hearing in my right ear for a while. I lost my ability to read for a couple of years. I lost feeling in my left leg to my knee, I couldn't walk at first. I couldn't write my name for a very long time...I stuttered.
