Troubled rocker Courtney Love is facing eviction from her New York home she's been trying to sell for the past few months.

Love, 41, who was recently ordered back into rehab after failing a drug test, has had the Manhattan loft listed for $5.5 million (GBP3 million) for several months.

After purportedly missing two $30,000 (GBP166,000) mortgage payments for July (05) and August (05), Mercury Capital Corporation seeks to foreclose on Love and "be decreed the owner of any personal property" in the home, according to documents in a lawsuit.

Love reportedly purchased the condominium four years ago for $2.4 million (GBP1.3 million), taking out a $1.5 million (GBP833,000) mortgage. She then borrowed another $1.5 million from lender Mercury Capital Corporation, according to papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.

Legal representatives for Love and Mercury have yet to comment.
