Rocker Courtney Love is facing a new legal woe just weeks after winning a defamation battle with her former lawyer - a doctor has filed suit for outstanding fees dating back to 2010.

A month after she was cleared of libelling her former attorney in a 2010 post on, Love is back in the headlines for allegedly skipping payments to her psychiatrist.

Dr. Edward Ratush has filed papers in New York County Supreme Court, claiming the Hole star owes him $48,250 (£30,156) for work he reportedly carried out four years ago.

He is suing for breach of contract and unjust enrichment, among other charges.

Love has yet to respond to the allegations.
