Courtney Love Sued By Her Lawyers

Troubled rock widow COURTNEY LOVE has been slapped with a lawsuit - by her own lawyers.

The former HOLE frontwoman's lawyers claim she has failed to pay up in her highly publicised battle to leave her former label, UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP.

In court papers obtained by website the SMOKING GUN, law firm CAPPELLO + MCCANN claims the 39-year-old widow of NIRVANA frontman KURT COBAIN failed to pay $228,926 (GBP134,662) for work on her lawsuit against Universal, which was filed in 2001 and settled out of court in late 2002.

According to the complaint filed last month (DEC03) in California's SANTA BARBARA SUPERIOR COURT, Love initially paid $50,000 (GBP29,411) to retain the legal services of Cappello + McCann, but ignored subsequent bills from the firm.

The lawsuit seeks to recoup the six-figure tab Love allegedly rung up between January 2001 and 1 November 2002, as well as 10 per cent interest.
