Courtney Love Sued By Her Own Lawyers
0
Courtney Love has been hit with a lawsuit from her own lawyers over allegedly libelous statements she made on twitter, but the former wife of Kurt Cobain has a more pressing matter on her mind - finding a "really, really rich" boyfriend. "These days I'm only interested in plutocrats. Like really, really rich guys," she said (via Music News). "I'm determined to land one sooner or later. the thing is, I think I can be a real asset to a wealthy man." Courtney wants a life of luxury, and thinks everyone else should too. Speaking to The Fix, she said "No matter what your income level, luxury is important and luxury is time, the time you give to yourself to care for yourself. Those are really enjoyable things." Distracting herself with banal fantasies don't make the lawsuit go away. It was filed by her former lawyers at Gordon & Holmes, who she fired after they asked her to refrain from "any and all substance abuse," according to Contact Music. She later returned and asked them to represent her again, but they declined. The lawsuit regards the resulting libellous statements she allegedly made on twitter after the fallout, though the messages in question appear to have been deleted. This is not the first time Love has been in trouble for mouthing off online. In 2009, fashion designer Dawn Simorangkir sued her for defamation, with Love reportedly settling the case for $430,000 earlier this year.

    Oh, Courtney. I know you're a good person, but you've got to stop saying shit like this.

    I am so tired of articles about Courtney Love...if there's going to be articles about irrelevant artists, can't we search for unknown bands that are really good and try to make them relevant?

    If only Kurt would read this on 1990, hahaha he, for sure, wouldnt married her. This bitch was always a black widow bitch, from the day she was born. Her daddy often said that

    Or a large amount of ignorance on your part? Hole was a groundbreaking Noise/Experimental band in the 80's, and an influential Grunge-ish band in the 90's.

    this is not music news. i feel that UG is only posting articles like this because they know everyone hates her and will generate a lot of heat in the comments, and then web ratings will go up. this is not music news. next time, try posting articles that aren't completely superficial. you could have used this space to promote an up and coming band or something. instead, you talk of a washed out human who has no sense of self pride. get your shit together UG. this is not music news.

    She isn't a troll, trolls don't take themselves seriously, they agitate people because they think it's funny. Courtney is just a attention ***** who really is stupid enough to qualify for pissing people off 24/7.

    First she's bitching about Nirvana's author rights to get more money and now she wants a rich boyfriend. Pure greed. I hope she dies in a fire c:

    I agree with everyone that this doesn't really interest me as "Music News"... it's news, it's about someone who used to be involved in music, it's written concisely, and it has just taken up about ten minutes of my time that I will never recover. Thanks UG for preparing me for musical revolution with this succinct report on Courtney Love's dating fancies.

    Anyone associated with her should sue her on general principle. She's probably doing something illegal or tortious to everyone she knows. Uh oh, did I just libel Courtney Love? Yea, being Kool-Aid would be cool. OH YEAAAHH!!!
    iljh
    Anyone ever wish they could be the Kool-Aid Man for a day or is that just me?

    The beeyatch we all LOVE to hate. She knows it too. That why people from magazines and such interview her anymore.... because they know we'll read it even though it pisses us off. So she's looking for ANOTHER boyfriend... the guys don't seem to hang around her for long. I wonder why? I mean... she's Americas Sweetheart! Ask her... she'll tell you. Her daughter gets 40 grand a month from Kurts trust fund... think she's jealous? Did she really piss away ALL that Nirvana money? She will die sad and lonely.... YAY!

    "I think i can be an asset to a wealthy man." Yeah, if they dont mind having all their money stolen. What a stupid woman.

    Hahahaha. Never thought to put up and shut up did she. Not that I give a shit about Kurt Cobain but it looks like she had this coming to her.

    Well I'm sure tomorrow UG will have an article with Dave Grohls opinion about this, seeing how the news is usually about the Foo Fighters or stupid things Courtney Love says/does.

It's a well-known fact that she collaborated with Kurt Cobain and Billy Corgan in writing both her and their songs.
    She contributed little, if anything to Cobain's songs. If this were the case she would be credited where appropriate and the legal wranglings would be far more complex. Maybe, since she was screwing him at the time, you think she wrote The Downward Spiral, too?

    I think i'm missing something here, why is she able to be sued for simply stating she wants a rich guy?

    Aww, your lack of fact or real argument is adorable.
