A fashion designer has filed a defamation lawsuit against [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kurt Cobain[/lastfm]’s widow [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Courtney Love[/lastfm]. Love has been known to post crazy ranting that occasionally is barely legible on her twitter account. She’s even tweeted nude pictures of herself. Now it seems that Ms. Love has taken to twitter to allegedly slam fashion designer Dawn Simorangkir.
Love and the designer have been squabbling since 2009. Love allegedly accused Simorangkir of being a drug-pushing prostitute with a history of assault and battery who lost custody of her own child. Wait a minute? That could almost describe Love?
Here’s what Love tweeted:
“She has received a vast amount of money from me over $40,000 dollars and I do not make people famous and get raped too!”[pullquote quote=”She has received a vast amount of money from me over $40,000 dollars and I do not make people famous and get raped too!” credit=”Courtney Love via Twitter”]
Attorney Bryan Freedman who is representing Somorangkir says this is the first twitter lawsuit, stating “There has never been anything like this case before.” Freedman hopes to prove that Love has been defamatory towards Simorangkir and force Love to compensate his client for damages.
In response, Love’s lawyer James Janowitz said, “We don’t believe there’s any defamation, and even if there were defamatory statements, there was no damage.”
The trial gets underway this February in Los Angeles.
