I think the big surprise here is that someone trusted her to actually pay them.
Empress of the Hot Mess, Courtney Love is being sued by her former lawyers, Keith A. Fink & Associates, after failing to ante up nearly $500,000 in legal bills. TMZ is stating that after running the law firm ragged by putting them through 14 legal battles in less than a year, Fink would receive “gifts, thank-you notes, flowers [and] tickets to concerts” but no dough.
More info after the jump.
Courtney did attempt to pay off some of the bills, but most of the checks bounced.
Fink claims Love’s business manager tried to stall the bill collectors by assuring Fink that Love would have the money as soon as she got paid out from the Nirvana estate. But the money never came.
Fink also claims Love is completely irresponsible with the cash she does have … spending a fortune on personal assistants who “charged her hundreds of dollars for measly tasks such as tidying up hotel suite and picking up coffee for her at a nearby Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf.”
The law firm is going for $466,029.41 in back payments, late fees and punitive damages. Of course, Courtney’s rep is denying the claims, saying that Fink hasn’t been her lawyer “for years” and that there hasn’t been anything served to her.
