Cyndi Lauper’s son faces boot from posh NYC pad for allegedly smoking weed, late-night screaming and thumping music

Cyndi Lauper’s troubled son could get the boot from his luxury Manhattan digs for being the neighbor from hell with thumping music, late-night screaming and weed stench, court papers allege.

Declyn “Dex” Lauper-Thornton’s landlord lodged an eviction petition last month to try to boot the 26-year-old rapper from his $7,200-a-month apartment in a glassy high-rise building in the Financial District, according to the New York County Civil Court filing.

Lauper-Thornton — the only son of music icon Cyndi and her “Law & Order” TV actor hubby David Thornton — has allegedly violated a slew of lease rules since he moved into the posh one-bedroom pad with postcard views in October.

“I never had any problems with any of the neighbors before,” a former neighbor told The Post on Friday.

“Then a new tenant moved in … and immediately there was very loud music at the most bizarre times, like 3 a.m. or 7 a.m. — it felt like there was a nightclub right behind my wall,” the man said, referring to Lauper-Thornton’s apartment at the 19 Dutch St. building.

A source added that the day after a tenant confronted Lauper-Thornton about a particularly wild night, the former neighbor found a bullet in the hallway near his apartment — and decided to move out of his home shortly after.

Lauper-Thornton was previously arrested twice — for an illegal gun in Harlem in February and for alleged possession of a stolen Mercedes in Hamilton Heights, Manhattan, in July 2022.

The night before his gun bust, the son of the “True Colors” and “Time After Time” singer walked into his building’s management office “holding a marijuana blunt and looking visually inebriated” to complain about being sent an email, court papers charge.

“If you don’t fix the email, I will come back with people and have everyone’s face broken,” Lauper-Thornton allegedly threatened. “I will break your legs. I have friends and an uncle that will f–k you up. Don’t play with me because I will bring someone with me and tear this whole place up.”

Other frightened tenants reported him to building management after hearing constant screaming coming from his apartment.

“The resident advised the yelling, shouting and/or screaming sounded very aggressive in nature and was filled with explicit language and threats of bodily harm,” the filing states.

Another reported that she is “scared for her safety because of the constant yelling and noise.”

A flurry of complaints have also piled up against Lauper-Thornton over the smell of cigarette and marijuana smoke allegedly wafting from his apartment — despite the building having a clear no-smoking policy.

His alleged antics had become so disruptive that one tenant claimed in court papers that their apartment was now “unlivable.”

The former neighbor said the noise wasn’t a one-off thing — by far.

“I would hear the disturbing music every other day. There were plenty of times when it was 2 a.m., 3 a.m. or 4 a.m.,” said the former neighbor, who didn’t want to be named.

“I had an important meeting one day, on a week day, but I was woken up at 3 a.m. the night before because the music was blasting. I could feel the bass. I put on a robe and went to confront the guy, in a nice way, and I had to bang on the door so loud because he just couldn’t hear.

“He tried to take the high road with me, saying ‘Oh, is this how you talk to people?’ I said, ‘Yes, at 3 a.m., I’m not going to be overly nice about it.’ So we had this conversation for 30 seconds. I left, and the music continued,” he added.

After residents started seeking concessions to make up for Lauper-Thornton’s alleged bad behavior, the landlord served him with eviction papers.

The building’s lawyer, Martin Meltzer, declined to comment when reached by The Post.

Lauper-Thornton’s attorney, Darryl Vernon, said, “We are talking about ways to resolve the situation.”

The claims come just months after Lauper-Thornton’s father coughed up $20,000 in cash to bail him out on the gun raps.
