Courtney Love Eviction Case on Hold Until Next Month
Fri, 23 Dec 2011 10:31:33
Lightning rod rocker Courtney Love has avoided eviction from her New York property over Christmas as the case has been bumped to January.
Love moved into a Manhattan townhouse earlier this year but the building's owner Donna Lyon claims that Love owes $50,000 in back rent.
Love disputes that claim - of course she does- saying, "I haven't fallen behind on the rent – I have been paying month-to-month as agreed."
The New York Daily News reports that the case will come back around on Jan. 13. Love's lawyer is asking to dismiss the case altogether.
Lawyer Eric Sherman said, "I think Courtney would like to stay (beyond February). She was never behind in her rent." Lyon is also alleging that Love redecorated without permission. Sherman called it "upgrading" the property to a higher standard. He said, "She's done a magnificent job of keeping up the premises. The place looks better than when she moved in."
Love's lease expires on Feb. 15.
