Eddie Van Halen has been in hot water –- literally.

Well maybe not hot, but his Los Angeles-area home has been besieged by water damage since it was remodeled in 2008, and as a result, he's suing the contractor, Troy Builders Group. In the lawsuit, Eddie claims he was left with a leaky roof and chimney, and poorly installed gutters and flashing, which led to the water coming into the home. He has spent more than $1 million to have the home repaired and is trying to recoup that money plus interest.
