Courtney Love Claims Ryan Adams Stole From Her

Courtney Love has launched a blog-based attack on her former boyfriend Ryan Adams. In a rambling post on her MySpace page, Love claims the former Whiskeytown frontman stole $858,000 of Francis Bean Cobain's trust fund money to fund his Rock N Roll album as well as "outboard gear and four seasons bills and fancy Nobu dinners."
She continues, "Does that make you feel like a big man? Stealing from a suicide? A martyred hero? [With] God [as] my witness Ryan you will pay back every fucking penny of this … most people reading this don't even know what record or even artist I'm referring to, as your just this cult Americana wannabe Dylan thing."
For the full, unedited text—bad grammar and all—of Love's diatribe, head over to Stereogum (the original MySpace post appears to have been taken down, but some Love-penned follow-ups have already appeared at http://www.myspace.com/courtneylove).
