LoveFinances200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Courtney Love, the widow of Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain, may have been swindled out of as much as $500 million, according to online reports.

Love's attorney, Rhonda J. Holmes says the extent of the loss is unknown and that so far only about $30 million has been accounted for.

Her attorney says Love was likely victimized at a time in her life when she was unable to take care of her own finances.

"It's no secret she struggled with substance-abuse issues, but in the last year she's taken a more serious approach to sobriety and started noticing things were wrong."

According to her lawyer, Love only became aware there was a financial issue when she "noticed the money was gone ... there wasn't any left". A team of private investigators, accountants and lawyers are now in the process of trying to recover Love's assets.
