City to Villa: Even Celebs Have to Go Home

7/30/2008 12:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

VillaWould you kick Leonardo DiCaprio and John Mayer to the curb?

That's the crux of the argument between celeb hotspot Villa and the city of West Hollywood. Villa has been cited three times for being open past 2:00 AM -- a city no-no. But Villa claims they should get special treatment because of "safety concerns" surrounding their celeb clientele.

Villa is appealing the citations, arguing they technically aren't open after 2:00 AM because no further business is going down.

They say they can't exactly boot out their high-profile clients who've dropped thousands of dollars right at two on the nose. Also, Villa claims their celebrity clients have the paparazzi to deal with, so that's a complication.

The hearing is set for tomorrow.

Maybe these drunk celebs should attend the clubs in LA, not West Hollywood! Go back to Hollywood. Leave WeHo for us boys who like boys.

Enough is enough.

Celebs are not above the law. If they get to break the law, then we get to break the law.

Sick of celebs whining about being celebs, but use it for every perk when it serves them.

Celebs are special people we make life so much better for you common people. We deserve special treatment, we have money. that is enough reason. My sister should be able to drive drunk through LA if she likes.

Just another example of how SPECIAL Hollywood A-listers are. Breaking the law is breaking the law. Of course......
I may be more inclined to break the law if I got sentenced to "house arrest" at Paris' house too. Way more posh than my home.

Oh please! Celebs are a big pain in the ass! I don't have any respect for these idiots. I despise that they come into a neighborhood and ruin it. They act as if they are the chosen people.

Um... its called announcing last call at 1-130am, turning off the music and settling tabs. Or offering to turn private after 2am and those celebs who are hell bent on staying at this loser palace can pay to stay.

Let them party at their own houses, invite all their celeb friends home, too. Then they can drink until they drown and pass out. OH WAIT! Then they wont get paid by these clubs to be there to make the place...."trendy" for the next 15 minutes!
