Courtney Love Is in a Suing Mood
Courtney Love's vengeful wrath can no longer be contained by her prolific and bizarre online rants.
The New York Post reports that Love is going to court to regain millions of dollars that have been "looted" from the estate of her deceased husband, former Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.
Thanks to a team of investigators and "forensic accountants," Love and her legal team have discovered that more than $30 million in cash and up to $500 million in real estate have gone missing. And now Love wants it back.
"I have never seen such greed and moral turpitude," says Love's lawyer, Rhonda J. Holmes. "This case is going to make Bernard Madoff look warm and fuzzy."
Holmes says that she and her client will be launching legal proceedings "within the next 30 days. There are many, many millions missing. We've only been able to track down $30 million, but there is more. And then there is the real estate."
Love's attorney claims that bank accounts using the Social Security numbers of Courtney, Kurt and their daughter, Frances Bean, were used to buy and sell homes across the country.
"There is now a web of homes which were bought, flipped and used to launder money—up to $500 million worth," Holmes asserts. "Any of the property we can get back will be donated to people who have lost their homes in foreclosures."
Interestingly, Love recently found herself on the receiving end of a lawsuit. New Musical Express reports that Boudoir Queen fashion designer Dawn Simorangkir is suing the volatile songstress for allegedly making "menacing and disturbing" statements via her Twitter and MySpace accounts.
Nice to know that Courtney is doing her part to keep the economy afloat by providing plenty of work for legal professionals.
