Courtney Love is Being Sued


I know times are tough, but do you think you would work for Courtney Love? As in being her personal assistant? As being the person Courtney calls 24 hours a day when she can't sleep and is whacked out on drugs? The person who never lets you have a moment of peace every second of everyday. That would be a tough existence. I think part of you is saying you would like the job to see what Courtney is like and I can understand if you wanted the job for a week. Kind of like a personal assistant boot camp. But more than that? Think about anyone in your family who was on drugs or alcohol and their craziest moments ever. Have that image in your mind? That moment or two or several you spent with them? Imagine that 24 hours a day and you have no choice but to put up with it because you are getting paid.


Anyway, some person who held that job for Courtney for a year is suing Courtney over unpaid wages and expenses and that Courtney made unethical requests such as having the woman hire a hacker. Jessica Labrie, the person who is suing, also says she now suffers from headaches, insomnia and other medical conditions because of Courtney.

toss up Courtney, Lindsay, Courtney, Lindsay..

And the heading should be sued again...

Rose said...

There isn't enough money in the world that would make me take that job.

Vicki Cupper said...

Courtney Love should be institutionalized and forced to wear a burka at all times. Because, ouch.

Rowan said...

Ah, Enty, you find the best photos!

Thanks for the smile this morning.

Robert said...

That picture is seriously disturbing; she looks like Judy Garland did at the end of her life.

Brenda L said...

Sometimes I don't think she has much longer to be honest. She's been on a lot of drugs for most of her life and she doesn't want to get better.

Cook said...

Fantastic picture! She looks like a ghoul.

Robert said...

Judy was 47 when she died, Courtney Love is 48, so any time now, sad to say...

hunter said...

THAT IS THE BEST PHOTO EVAAHHHHHH!!!!!

The Black Cat said...

Unless the PA was hiding under a rock for almost 20 years they would have known what to expect. I think this is someone trying to cash in on in Courtney's notoriety. It's time people are made to be more responsible and not take advantage of someone else who is clearly pathetic. I actually feel sorry for Courtney for this.

Its just U said...

She will probably join the other rock star club who die at 50.

FSP said...

Jessica Labrie better be careful or she might not wake up one day.

angel said...

That photo is 'Courtney trashed' perfection. This is another instant classic I love:

Personally I think Courtney will remain a member of the Hollywood cockroach club. She won't die. If she hasn't died yet, she's not gonna.

Not that I would want to work for her, or any drug addict, but I do think there is a big difference between being around a family member or loved one who is struggling with substance abuse issues, and working for one and getting paid. It doesn't have to get personal. And I think you'd be a fool not to know what you're getting yourself into when accepting this job offer *L*.

dia papaya said...

How is she still alive? Someone should study this genetic mutation that allows crazy rock stars and Charlie Sheen to stay alive after all that partying. It boggles my mind.

Lizzymagoo22 said...

I hate her and I hate the people who work for her

Unknown said...

Judy Garland was still performing til her last days...Courtney hasnt done shit for years. She has a junkie tolerance so I think she'll last for years.

timebob said...

This is the same Jessica that is shopping a tell all book about Courtney "Get me a Xanax"

I thinnk she took the job knowing she was going to go for a pay day at the end of it. She took the shit to write the book and set the lawsuit up. Not that Courtney doesn't deserve it. She still thinks its 1994 and she is the Queen of Grunge and Kurt is still alive and should be treated like royalty.

Hendrix said...

I suffer headaches, insomnia and medical problems just READING about Courtney.

Comma Chaser said...

Speaking as a former 206er, I hope every picture of Courtney Love I see is the last one I see.

Most hated woman in Seattle, without question.

Rose said...

Angel, that is an amazing picture! I don't even want to know what is happening with her hair.

EmEyeKay said...

To back up @Comma Chaser's comment: four or five years ago The Stranger (Seattle's alt-paper) did an obituary cover of Courtney. Everyone knew she wasn't dead - the point was, the woman previously known as Courtney was looooong gone.

Anotheramy said...

Wait, I get the headaches and insomnia but how did Courtney cause the other medical problems. Does she suffer from bladder infections because Courtney didn't let her pee?

Vicki Cupper said...

Anotheramy, I could see it.

lazyday603 said...

Anybody remember the software plug-in for Photoshop in the 1990's called Kai's Power Goo? You could take any picture & twist & stretch it like it was reflected in a fun house mirror. Courtney's face looks like somebody put it through the Power Goo tool.

Robert said...

And C-Love JUST turned 48 two days ago...the clock is ticking!

Barton Fink said...

Comma Chaser, you're overlooking Lisa Dank, who briefly won the crown of Most Hated Woman in Seattle for most of 2011.

sussique said...

you could fit a softball in that mouth. Anyone see are Celebrity Roast of Pam Anderson? A must see. Even am was all WTF?! at certain points.

N9NA said...

I agree that she took the job to gather material for the tell all book. The lawsuit is just the cherry on top.

B. Profane said...

Sure, I'd do it...in a full biohazard suit, armed with a Taser and .44 Magnum, and provided that she paid me hourly in gold Kruggerands. And that she were gagged and wrapped up in a Kevlar straightjacket.

Wow, sounds like somebody's submission fantasy when you put it like that.

Another Josh said...

I remember when I saw her a small club in Vriginia Beach when Hole was just starting to gain popularity. Drew Barrymore was dating the guitarist and was standing on the side of the stage holding Francis Bean. Courtney was wasted, of course, and stage dived (dove?) on top of me and a guy behind me pulled her panties to the side and penetrated her with his fingers. She didn't seem to mind, in fact I'm not even sure if she even noticed.

donner said...

does this trick have any money to sue over? I thought it was either a)stolen, b) spent on drugs c)put into trust for The Bean. I bet working for this chick was worse than we can even imagine...can you picture the mornings in the house? Passed out in whatever chair/floor/sofa and the mess and smell...oof...

Comma Chaser said...

@Barton, ah man, I haven't lived in Seattle since 2007, so I'm unfamiliar with Lisa Dank. This info nerd thanks you for giving me something to google this afternoon. *scratches chin thoughtfully...*

Barton Fink said...

Basically, she stole someone's dog and then accused him of being a rapist, and the entire hipster community on First Hill and Cap Hill turned against her. She crested to like the top of the Twitter lists for a few days, had gigs cancelled, then gave the dog back to the rapist/murderer. It was a lovely diversion last summer.

Comma Chaser said...

@ Profane - Yep, I got the lowdown pretty quick. Jaysus what a dumbass. I lived on First Hill for a year or two, a stone's throw from Bauhaus cafe. And yeah, if a purebred dog is running around there then someone is probably looking for him. Her twitter is unintentionally hilarious in its vapidity.

Laura M said...

I'll be her assistant. I'll just give her weed. Most of the time she'll be sleeping and eating. She'll stop doing drugs and booze. No better medicine than that! LOL
