Oh boy. Here we go…
Courtney Love seems to have taken a break from being Lindsay Lohan's sober coach, because she is busy being evicted from her West Village townhouse, for which she pays $27,000 a month, because owner Donna Lyon claims that the Hole singer not only owes over $50,000 in rent, but also "ruined" the design décor by painting over hand-finished walls, and even set the curtains in the master bedroom on fire, all of which will cost up to $100,000 and up to 12 weeks to restore!
“It was decorated by the previous owner, interior designer Steven Gambrel. One of the requirements of the lease is that nothing should be done to the interiors. Courtney has wallpapered and painted a large portion of the property without my consent. I learned about this when I wanted to sell the house and had photographs taken. They sent me the brochure and I said, ‘This can’t be my property.’ I came to New York to see it and I was horrified by what she had done. The walls that had been hand-painted and glazed were ruined, covered in damask wallpaper and ice-blue paint. [After she set fire to a curtain in her bedroom] I got a call from her accountant, who said, ‘Miss Love is fine,’ which I was glad to hear, but I thought, ‘What about the house?’ ”
And just to prove gurlfriend isn't messing around, she has set a December 21st civil court date for which Love is required to appear!
Lyon's lawyer, Norman Flitt, continues:
"[Love] as taken a historical house done by a recognized designer, and has taken upon herself to redecorate it. It Is tantamount to destroying a work of art.”
Eek! Someone is in trouble!
We wonder what she'll have to say for herself in front of the judge?!
