Courtney Love Says She Is A Victim


You know all those ads you see everywhere for services that protect you against identity theft and watch your credit score and things in general just to make sure you are not the victim of a crime? Well, as much time as Courtney Love spends on the internet you would have thought she would have seen them. Apparently not, because Courtney is once again saying that people have been ripping her off for years and stealing all of her money and she didn't even know it.

In response to the suit American Express filed against her for $350,000 in unpaid charges, Courtney's lawyer says that none of the charges were from Courtney. Not the Spelling For Dummies book or the Xanax prescriptions. None of it. Instead it was the work of organized crime who managed to take out 104 AMEX cards all in Courtney's name or the name of one of her companies. Apparently this has been going on for years. Umm, then why didn't she say something to American Express years ago? Don't you think that when the first bills started coming in for cars and what not that you would look out your front door and say, "You know, I do a lot of drugs, but I really don't remember buying a Smart Car."

The thing is, Courtney said the same thing about six months ago and said that people had been stealing millions of dollars from her using her name and Kurt Cobain's name and so she was going to try and get it all back. Is she doing her own accounting? I'm pretty sure that unless her accountant is also her drug dealer, that they probably can identify a bunch of false charges.

On the other hand I wouldn't put it past Courtney to have 104 personalities and taken out a card in each name. I think she just doesn't want to admit she bought crap like what she is wearing in the picture.

Courtney's been crying "victim" since before she married Kurt.

Bet she uses another credit card to "pay" that lawyer who is fool enough to take her on as a client.

"You know, I do a lot of drugs, but I really don't remember buying a Smart Car." Good one.

Rocket Queen said...

Ha Jewels you beat me to it.
A victim? Yes, a fashion victim, maybe.

Jenn said...

I agree - fashion victim is the only kind of victim Courtney is!

her daughter is a teenager...can you imagine the hell she must have to live with?!

if courtnay cares anything at all about the well-being of that child, i hope she can see past her drug haze and get herself to a therapist stat.

Is it really impossible that someone has used her name and unpredictable public persona in order to get credit advanced to them? I'm just saying. I mean, is it really disproven just because she has alleged that it's taking place? I'm not seeing a lot of proof or disproof except people's dislike of Courtney (and that is a terrible pic, I agree) --

Hmm, I'd love a Smart Car. Excuse me, off to open a line of credit in Court- oops, I mean "my" name.

i was a victim of ID theft. if she really was, then she could say she has documented proof that she reported it to american express and they could certainly confirm it, and their fraud department would have investigated it.

i think this is more like my previously addicted friend who used to call the bank yelling about unauthorized use of his bank card and then remember later it was HE who had done it to buy cocaine.

Court's brain on drugs obviously does a lot of tacky fashion shopping.

the pizza hut delivery girl stole my credit card number once. because stupid pizza hut printed out the entire number on the receipt they gave the driver. she bought $300 worth of phone cards, which was the big scam at the time.
i caught it, and called the bank, the cops, did everything i was supposed to do. i got my money back, but had to go without bank access for about a week, because we have one branch (credit union). huge hassel, but not that difficult.
could never prove who stole it, and many years later girl still delivers for pizza hut.
why not? seems like a lucrative living.
