Courtney Love Being Sued by Former Lawyers

How's this for irony? The perennially in trouble of some sort Courtney Love is being sued by her former legal team at Keith A. Fink & Associates. The firm claims that Love owes $466,029.41 in outstanding fees. That's a lot, including that 41 cents. They must "hate" working with her.
The firm says Love owes them from the 14 legal cases they worked on for her from January to October in 2009.
TMZ reports that Love sent gifts, "thank you" notes, flowers and tickets to concerts as tokens of her appreciation. But they want checks and payment, not meaningless gifts. Those are nice, above and beyond payment. But they don't replace payment.
The firm is seeking back payments and late fees as well as punitive damages.
Love's rep told TMZ that "Courtney has not been served with anything, so as far as we're concerned there is no lawsuit. Additionally, Keith has not been her attorney for many years, so it's a bit odd that this would surface now." Uh, no kidding. They repped her in 2009. Duh.
Team Fink or Team Love?
