Courtney Love Welshes on Jewelry Loan

Tsk tsk. Courtney Love has welshed on a jewelry loan! Jeweler Jacob & Co. says that Love has failed returning nearly $114,000 worth of borrowed gems, so the dealer is suing her for what is rightfully his.
The always controversial Love borrowed two white gold and diamond chains, a white gold, floral-design mesh bracelet and a pair of white gold and diamond pave hoop earrings on September 21. It is customary for jewelers to lend their wares to celebrities for red carpet appearances and events; the baubles are returned after as is standard.
Oh, but is anything ever standard or proper when it comes to C Love? The suit claims that Love returned only the bracelet and failed to return the other items, despite repeated demands for their safe return.
Does anyone remember the train wreck rental/hotel that Love was residing in NYC a few years back? It looked like a cyclone hit it and showed Love to be a bit of a slob, so I wouldn't be surprised if Love lost the gems. Oh wait, she did admit that she lost the item; her agreement when she borrowed them was that she would be responsible for them regardless of loss or damage so she is sans paddle and up a creek.
How the hell do you lose expensive jewelry that you were temporarily entrusted with?
What is your opinion of Courtney Love's latest shenanigan?
