Madonna's ex-husband Guy Ritchie faces losing the liquor licence on his beloved London pub following a string of complaints from local residents.
Ritchie purchased The Punch Bowl in Mayfair during his marriage to the pop superstar and was allowed to keep the drinking establishment in their divorce settlement.
But the venue is facing possible closure after officials at the local council were inundated by letters from disgruntled residents complaining about noise levels coming from the pub at night.
A source tells London newspaper the Evening Standard: "The neighbours are fed up with the racket (noise), which sometimes goes on into the early hours."
Authorities at Westminster Council confirmed they have received 37 complaints about The Punch Bowl and have taken action by placing a microphone in a nearby building to monitor noise levels from the pub over the next few weeks.
A spokesperson for the council says, "Managers at the pub are aware of this activity and it will take two weeks to complete."
The film director, 40, risks losing his licence if council officials decide there is too much noise.
