Courtney Love Sued For Twitter Libel

Courtney Love, rock musician famous for being married to Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain, is being sued for libel after tweeting some nasty things about her personal fashion designer.

In the lawsuit, the designer claims she stopped working for Love after the rock star failed to pay up for previous work. Soon after, Love tweeted to her follows that the designer was a “nasty, lying, hosebag thief,” that she had a history of dealing cocaine, lost custody of her child and was guilty of assault and burglary.

The suit also alleges Love commented on the designer’s business site, saying “The nastiest lying worst person I have ever known … evil incarnate, vile horrible lying bitch." The plaintiff claims Love’s remarks have devastated her business.

Love appears to tweet fairly constantly—just reading backward in time on her account will take one on a fairly weird and vulgar journey seeming to stretch out forever. Just try to get to the bottom of March 28 tweets and you’ll see what a daunting task it is to sift through the relative madness.

This isn’t the first time Love has made sensational claims or scathing remarks about people in cyberspace. Last summer, in a bizarre MySpace post no longer available, Love launched allegations against named accountants, managers, and lawyers she claimed embezzled $380 million from her.

While that post seems to have disappeared—the allegations were very specific and against some well known people—her most recent MySpace post continues the people-are-cashing-in-on-my-dead-husband’s-name trend. Love writes that identity thieves have been buying houses all over the country. She also claims there are only 27 Cobains in the country and none in Ohio or New Jersey.

A quick search through the Whitepages, though, brings back four Cobains in Ohio and two in New Jersey, though one supposes they could be bogus as well. Or it could be time for Ms. Love to seek professional help—at least in the form of ghost blogging/tweeting.
