KB Home CEO Jeffrey Mezger was just got caught in a gnarly Los Angeles home dispute last week, and it has nothing to do with his publicly traded homebuilding company.

The head of the L.A.-based company yelled profanity-ridden insults at his neighbors, Kathy Griffin and her boyfriend Randy Bick, after the couple complained to the Los Angeles police about a noise disturbance coming from Mezger’s residence, the Huffington Post reported.

In audio recorded by Bick, Mezger can be heard calling Griffin a “f***ing bald d**e” whom President Trump “kind of put the heat on.” He also calls her a “f***ing c**t.”

Griffin has been sporting a shaved head in support of her sister, Joyce, who was undergoing chemotherapy and passed away two days before the incident.

The argument took place in Bel Air, where Mezger and Griffin have neighboring homes.

“Mr. Mezger regrets losing his temper over a supposed noise complaint involving his three young grandchildren in his swimming pool around 8 p.m. on Saturday, while they were being supervised by their mother and grandmother,” a KB Home spokesperson told HuffPost in a statement. The company said the executive has since apologized to Griffin.

KB Home was founded by Angeleno philanthropist Eli Broad and his late business partner, Donald Bruce Kaufman. Mezger has served as chief executive and chairman of the company since 2006. The company has a market cap of $1.7 billion, according to Yahoo Finance. [HUFFPO] [LAT] – Natalie Hoberman
