Dane Gives Up Haunted Apartment!

9/23/2008 10:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dane CookTMZ has learned Dane Cook has given up his fight to live in what he believes is an apartment that has a supernatural force.

Cook was evicted from a West Hollywood apartment last August after a jury decided the "comedian" habitually violated the rules requiring him to pick up his dog's crap.

As reported yesterday, Cook threw a Hail Mary at the judge, arguing that hizzoner should block the eviction because the apartment building had almost paranormal qualities -- John Belushi and Steve Martin both lived there, and Cook believed if he moved out his creative juices stop flowing and a bad case of writer's block would ruin his career. Did anyone see "Employee of the Month?"

Now, we've learned the lawyers appeared in court yesterday and Cook abandoned the appeal. The case has settled and the way we understand it, Cook has paid the landlord an undisclosed sum of money for the case to go away.

By the way, Cook now owns a $7 million home in the Hollywood Hills with spectacular views. Maybe his movies will actually suck less.

I dont know who this guy is, but anyone who is so arrogant and stuck on themselves and thinks they are so much better than everyone else, that they dont have to follow the rules and clean up their dog crap is a loser. If you want a dog and you think you are so much better than that, then hire somebody to walk your dog and clean up after it. Sheesh these people have no clue!!

I've heard that Dane Cook steals material from other comics like Louis C.K. and tells them just a little differently. I actually heard some examples once and it seems pretty true. So why would he need ghostly vibrations from his heroes to inspire him when he's just plagiarizing?

This Black Chick Thinks Shia LaBouf Is Fine As Hell!!    

I don't know why people think this guy (Dane Cook) is funny, cuz he is NOT. Ive see a few of his stand ups and didn't laugh at any one. Some chicks thinks he's good looking too....uh, NOT.

The guy on MadTv that does sketches of him....now THAT's funny.

Tom Cruise has landed    

What's crazy about this story is that moron thinks his career is going to last to pay for that $7 million house. Maybe he can find an apartment next to M.C. Hammer.
