Robbie Williams was left terrified after his neighbour Joe Pesci threatened him with a golf club during a furious bust-up.
The 64-year-old actor saw red when Robbie invited his friends over to his Los Angeles home for a game of soccer and they blocked Pesci's driveway with their cars.
Pesci stormed out brandishing a club, ranting: "Which one of you motherf****** blocked my drive?
"If you don't move in 30 seconds, I'm going to smash your windscreen."
Robbie - who has a soccer pitch at his home and holds weekly matches - initially thought his Oscar-winning neighbour was joking, but quickly realised the star was serious and ordered his friends to move their vehicles.
A pal of the Rudebox singer compared the row to a scene from Goodfellas, in which Pesci played psychotic gangster Tommy DeVito.
The friend told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "It was pretty terrifying in Goodfellas when Pesci's character flew off the handle. Imagine seeing it in real life. Robbie has never had any sort of dispute with his neighbours before and has now given his friends strict instructions to steer clear of Pesci's driveway.
"One of the things he really likes about Los Angeles is the anonymity - big showdowns are the last thing he wants."
