Courtney Love is being sued by former lawyers over unpaid legal bills. Keith A. Fink and Associates allege that while working with Love from January 2009 to October 2009, Love failed to pay up on most of her approximately $518,000 accumulated fees. The lawsuit, filed today in Los Angeles, also claims Love’s business manager promised payment, citing Love’s potential income from the Nirvana estate, but the money didn’t materialize. Fink is seeking over $460,000 in fees and back payments, plus damages.
“We simply were not paid money that we earned,” Fink tells Rolling Stone. “I finally got tired of the repeated promises by Courtney’s business manager that we would be paid and thus filed this lawsuit.”
In April, Love’s attorneys at Pyror Cashman sought to withdraw their counsel after being hired to defend Love from one of her previous lawyers, Rhonda Holmes.
