Courtney Love Sued By Former Assistant For Unpaid Wages

Jul 11, 2012 12:15 PM

clovedonoghue061411_07_230.jpgCourtney Love's ex-assistant is suing over unpaid wages and unethical requests the singer made, claiming she was instructed to hire a hacker and falsify legal letters.

On Tuesday, Jessica Labrie filed a wrongful termination and breach of contract suit in a Los Angeles courtroom.

According to the lawsuit, Labrie worked for Love for about a year from 2010-2011 but was let go when she complained about thousands of dollars in unpaid wages and business trip expenses. The suit also claims Labrie suffered headaches, insomnia and other medical conditions as a result of Love’s conduct. Her attorney, Joshua Gruenberg, stated that Love wanted a hacker to change records to businesses she owned or believed she owned, but Labrie refused.

Labrie is seeking unspecified damages for alleged wrongful termination, failure to pay wages and overtime, negligent misrepresentation, breach of contract and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Frances Bean Lashes Out At Mom Courtney Love Over "Gross" Tweets

Apr 13, 2012 07:00 AM


Will these two ever get along?

Frances Bean Cobain finally had enough of mom Courtney Love's embarrassing Tweets, after the singer claimed that late hubby Kurt Cobain's bandmate Dave Grohl had once "hit on" their only daughter, and "she was curious." Yikes!

This prompted the usually private 19-year-old to lash out, Tweeting in response:

    "While I'm generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn. I have never been approached by Dave Grohl in more than a platonic way. I'm in a monogamous relationship and very happy."

She added, "Twitter should ban my mother."

Grohl was also quick to shoot down any rumors of a romance, telling E! News, "Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue."

Should Twitter ban Courtney for slander?

Courtney Love Chain Smokes While Showing Off Closet Of Priceless Vintage Clothes

Dec 23, 2011 10:45 AM

Could this be the reason she's getting evicted?

Troubled singer Courtney Love opened up her lavish closet to fashion blog StyleList.com for their "Behind The Closet" segment, but despite the fact that her wardrobe was filled with priceless vintage pieces, Love was constantly sucking on a cancer stick, filling her walk-in with nasty cigarette smoke.

Not the best way to preserve vintage clothing, Court!

Love donned a sheer top that clearly showed off her bra for the segment, and revealed that most of the antique clothing she's collected was the result of her job in the wardrobe department at Paramount Pictures, in 1983.

The Hole singer revealed that her job was to take the used vintage items and throw them out, but she would take them home instead -- smart girl!

And when Love was asked if she kept anything from late husband Kurt Cobain's closet, she replied: "I don’t have it here, I store it. People steal it. If I tell that something was Kurt’s it’s gone."

Court also gushed over her fave designer: "I am really big on (Vivienne) Westwood, even though my boobs have popped out twice now."

Meanwhile the singer recently responded to reports that she's being kicked out of her $27,000-a-month rented NYC brown stone, after wrecking the decor and -- surprise, surprise! -- by causing a fire inside the $8 million designer home. She's been served was an evection notice after causing more than $100,000 worth of damage, and she also owes $55,000 in unpaid rent.

Court said she caused the "damage" because she was upset she couldn't make any alterations to the decor.

Courtney Love Not Lindsay's Sobriety Coach, Rep Confirms

Dec 1, 2011 01:25 PM


Courtney Love claims to be Lindsay Lohan's sobriety coach, however Lilo's rep says it's not true.

Steve Honig, Lohan's rep, tells X17online:

    "Courtney Love is not, and never has been, a sobriety coach to Lindsay Lohan."

In the December issue of Details magazine, Love, 47, said the following: "I've taken up Lohan because nobody else will."

Kurt Cobains's widow then went on to say the 25-year-old starlet was "further down the line than I was" ... and that she's Lilo's last hope to stay sober.

Love's rep says Courtney has yet to officially give Lindsay any advice. Back in 2008, Love went through a 12-step program in order to get off drugs.

As for Linds, she must complete at least 12 days of community service at the morgue by December 14 as a result of violating her probation. She'll also be featured in Playboy's January/February issue.

Judge Orders Courtney Love To Pay $115,000 For Missing Jewels

Oct 20, 2011 10:45 AM

CourtneyLoveJewels230.jpgCourtney Love is pulling a Lindsay Lohan -- but on a much larger scale!

A Manhattan judge just found Love responsible for $115,000 worth of jewelry that went missing last year.

Love borrowed baubles from celeb jeweler Jacob & Co. for "The New Yorkers for Children Benefit" at Cirpriani's restaurant last year, including two gold diamond chains, a gold cuff bracelet and gold diamond pave hoop earrings.

The chains were $34,200 each, the earrings $45,500 and the bracelet was worth $70,000. Love signed a document saying she knew the value of the jewels.

Love claimed that after the event, she put the items in a bag and gave them to the staff at the Mercer Hotel (where she was staying) with instructions to return the bag to Jacob. She claims the staff returned the bracelet, but lost the chains and earrings.

At the time, Love filed a police report (she maintains that she does not have the jewels.) But Jacob didn't believe her, and filed a lawsuit soon after saying she is responsible and demanding that she pay $113,000 plus interest.

“Her detention and retention of the chain and the earrings are wrong,” said the company’s filing.

Now, a judge has sided with Jacob, and Love must pay him the money.

Courtney Love On Her First Intimate Moments With Kurt Cobain

Oct 11, 2011 09:30 AM

LoveCorgan230.jpgThe latest issue of New York Magazine has an excerpt from the upcoming book I want My MTV: The Uncensored Story of the Music Video Revolution, and who better to chat about Kurt Cobain's famous "Smells Like Teen Spirit" video than Courtney Love?

Love told the authors about the first time she and Cobain slept together, at a Days Inn in Chicago:

    "We were having our first post-coital moment, and we're watching MTV and the video [Smells Like Teen Spirit] came on. I pulled away from him, because it was his video, his moment, he was the king of the f***ing world, and he put his arm around me and pulled me closer. Which was symbolic, like, 'I'm letting you into my life. That really endeared him to me.'"

Love also reveals that, the next time she saw Cobain, at a hotel in Minneapolis, it wasn't on purpose.

    "I'd flown there to f*** Billy Corgan ... I didn't even know Nirvana were playing that night. Kurt and I wound up at the Northstar, and our daughter, Frances, was basically made that night."

How romantic.

Courtney Love Says She'd Kill Kurt Cobain If He Was Still Alive

Oct 5, 2011 12:00 PM

CourtneyLoveVF230.jpgCourtney Love still hasn't let go of anger toward deceased husband Kurt Cobain.

The 47-year-old rocker tells the new issue of Vanity Fair:

    "Mad? Ya think?! If he came back right now I’d have to kill him, for what he did to us. I’d f***ing kill him. I’d f*** him, and then I’d kill him."

Love "shouted" the words at the mag's contributing editor, says VF's article, and didn't stop there.

    "He tried to kill himself three times! ... He OD’d at least five times. I was the f***ing E.M.S. I was always sticking pins in his balls. I carried around Narcan! [a drug used to bring OD-ing heroin users back to life]."

Love then shifts from angry to sad as she talks about her now non-existent relationship with her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain. She holds Frances' diary as she talks to the reporter and expresses regret over how she raised her child.
