Kardashian Wedding Fallout

Authorities Receive 22 Complaint Calls; Shut Off Party's Music Early


Tuesday, August 23, 2011

As dust clears from the whirlwind of activity that was Kim Kardashian's Montecito wedding, details are emerging from the much-hyped weekend event.

According to Sheriff's Department spokesperson Drew Sugars, his office received 22 calls from neighbors complaining about the raucous affair at 2845 Sycamore Canyon Road. Most of the complaints were for loud, loud music and helicopters buzzing overhead, but a few were for trespassing and paparazzi activity. Sugars said that a sergeant was sent out at around 12:30 a.m. to shut off the music. The Kardashians complied, but gossip magazines reported that one the sisters threw a bit of a fit.

The private security firm contracted by the Kardashians, explained Sugars, hired seven on-duty deputies to help with crowd and traffic control. Sheriff Bill Brown attended the wedding on his own time.

Dianne Black with the county's Planning and Development Department said a notice of violation was sent to the owner of the home where the wedding took place because he did not secure the proper permit. The county does intend to impose a fine, she said, but at the moment not many details are known, such as how many people actually attended or if the owner was paid for the use of his estate. These conditions would change the nature of the violation, Black said.
