Courtney Love Blasts Landlord

Courtney Love has blasted her "vicious" landlord for attempting to evict her from her New York home, insisting the legal action is "weird as heck." As heck? As heck? This is C. Love.
Donna Lyon is fighting to evict Love from an NYC townhouse, claiming she owes more than $50,000 in rent. Love, of course, says this is not the case.
Lyon has also complained about the singer redecorating the property without permission, but Love insists she's only taking advantage of a clause in the contract which allows her to make changes to the interior design. Why not just buy your own place, Courtney?
Love whipped up a blog post at XOJane, writing: "I moved into this home only on the condition that I could paint it and when I leave, I'd restore it to exactly what it was. Since I darkened the door, she (the owner) has been vicious to me and my staff. Having a landlady tell you your Prelle, $2,000-a-yard fabric…is 'destructive' is totally weird. My taste is artful and femme, but it's excellent. I'm 47, have bought and sold 14 houses… and love doing them nicely and tripling the price; it's just never been a question, so this whole experience is weird as heck."
She also said that Lyon was mentally abusive. She wrote: "Donna Lyon, the owner, came over the other day and, after informing me that ‘No one likes you, Courtney Love, NO ONE,' which made me cry, and proceeded to knock over a photo (she's rather... large) of me with Dame Elizabeth Taylor and shatter the mirrored frame."
Team Lyon or Team Love?
