Courtney Love is being sued by her former legal representatives Keith A. Fink & Associates, who are seeking $466,029.41 (£299,505) in outstanding fees. Her former lawyers filed the suit in Los Angeles, stating that she still hasn't paid the $518,640.66 (£333,317) worth of attorney's fees which she allegedly owes them from the 14 legal cases they worked on for her from January to October in 2009. According to TMZ, the company claim that the Hole frontwoman sent "gifts, thank-you notes, flowers, tickets to concerts" to say thank you for their work, but added that most of her cheques bounced. They are now seeking $466,029.41 in back payments and late fees as well as punitive damages. However, Love's representative Steve Honig went on to tell TMZ: "Courtney has not been served with anything, so as far as we're concerned there is no lawsuit. Additionally, Keith has not been her attorney for many years, so it's a bit odd that this would surface now." In other legal matters regarding Courtney Love, it was recently revealed that a law firm is trying to convince Frances Bean Cobain to testify against her mother. According to the Hollywood Reporter, lawyers suing Courtney Love for defamation have issued a writ requesting her 19-year-old daughter make a statement clarifying her meaning when she said: "Twitter should ban my mother." Frances called for Love to be banned from the social networking site after she used it to launch a tirade against her late husband Kurt Cobain's former Nirvana bandmate Dave Grohl, accusing him of making sexual advances on her daughter. The legal case revolves around whether Love defamed Rhonda Holmes - of law firm Gordon & Holmes - in a 2010 tweet, when she wrote: "I was f--king devastated when Rhonda J Holmes esq of San Diego was bought off. I've been hiring and firing lawyers to help me with this." Thanks for the report to NME.com.

    Somewhere, Dave Grohl is enjoying a Budweiser, a chuckle, and hanging out with Lemmy and Sir Paul. Up yours Courtney Love. Enjoy your epic fail.

    So the best way to get someone to pay money they don't have.... Is by taking more away? Whatever works with keeping this woman far away from us.

    Hey if you don't pay money you owe people as a result of a lawsuit ruling, do they throw you in jail? With this bitch, I hope that happens.

    What kind of lawyer is going to take her case, if the issue is former lawyers suing for payments?

    I agree. They should throw her in the Hole. That was a bad pun.

    I got sick of the articles about Courtney and wandered why she was famous so i checked out Hole. Hole ****ing rock! i even thought she was kinda hot in some of the videos... part of me feels kinda sorry for her in a way :/ how she went from this epic rock chick into a media joke? maybe depression from losing the love of her life drove her off the tracks i dunno :/

    Pretty much everybody saw this coming. She's been going downhill for the last few years now and she's starting to completely fall apart. If Kurt was still alive I bet she'd be doing fine just because she could leech of of him like she did before he died, but she's nothing on her own.
