Train Wreck Courtney Love Back in Court To Defend Against Libellous Tweet

GAL & PAL #2jpgAh yes, Courtney Love, a young woman with so much promise. A talented musician and actress with Grammy nominations and a Golden Globe nomination for her role in the movie “The People v. Larry Flynt”, hampered by psychological ills and sporadic drug addiction.

These days media reports focus on her bad behavior, not her artistic endeavors. She is in the spotlight this week as she attends court in California defending a law suit brought against her by her former lawyer, Rhonda Holmes. She retained Ms. Holmes several years ago to assist her in litigation involving the estate of her former husband, Kurt Cobain, of the Seattle band Nirvana. He is better known today for his tragic suicide rather than his musical legacy.

Ms. Love, apparently unhappy with lawyer Holmes, tweeted that the lawyer had been “bought off”, a serious charge against a professional whose livelihood depends upon her reputation.

This is not the first time Ms. Love has spewed ignorant remarks over the internet. In 2009 she settled another law suit brought against her by fashion designer, Dawn Simorangkir. The designer created some couture designs for Ms. Love, and then found herself on the receiving end of allegations that she was a thief and had a criminal record, again, all courtesy of Twitter.

Ms. Love wisely settled the law suit paying Ms. Simorangkir $430,000.

This week’s case is the first time a court in North America will scrutinize communication by Twitter. Witnesses expected to testify include Ms. Love, a few of her employees, and experts in language who are well-versed in the Twitter medium.

  1. Oh dear lord. Some people should not be allowed access to social media! But I am beginning to think that Courtney likes being in a courtroom, and puts herself into these situations for the media attention.

    Side-note, when I read “experts in language who are well-versed in the Twitter medium” I pictured a 15 year old Kardashian wannabe.

  2. It was a fake trial…just like the woman who goes by the stage name Courtney Love. It was for publicity to keep her “relevant” and her face in the public. I should know. I met the woman near the end of 1984 when she started hanging around, wanting a part in the film “Sid & Nancy”. It was in May of 1983 I met the man who went by the stage name Kurt Cobain and during that time he chose the birthday of Alabama native Charles Barkley (Feb. 20th). This is why Nirvana many years later would ask Barkley to appear on SNL with the band. I actually still have the obituary where Kurt chose the stage name “Courtney Love” from and printed in January of 1985, before she made her debut in the film.
