Courtney Love - Love's House Eviction Case Stalls Until January

Rocker Courtney Love has avoided eviction from her New York property over Christmas - the singer's case has been pushed back until January (12).
The Hole frontwoman moved into the Manhattan townhouse earlier this year (11) but the building's owner Donna Lyon has launched a legal battle against the star, claiming she owes more than $50,000 (£31,250) in rent.
Love is adamant she has kept to the payment agreement, saying earlier this month (Dec11), "I haven't fallen behind on the rent - I have been paying month to month as agreed."
The case was due to be heard on Wednesday (21Dec11) but it has now been stalled until 13 January (12), when Love's attorney Eric Sherman will ask for it to be dismissed altogether, reports the New York Daily News.
Sherman says, "I think Courtney would like to stay (beyond February). She was never behind in her rent."
Lyon also alleges the singer re-decorated the home without permission, but Sherman insists Love redecorated the property to a high standard: "She's done a magnificent job of keeping up the premises. The place looks better than when she moved in."
Love's current lease on the townhouse is due to expire on 15 February (12).
