Courtney Love: The AmEx Charges Are a Fraud!

5/28/2009 4:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Courtney LoveCourtney Love is firing back at American Express for suing her, claiming she owes more than $350,000 in credit card debt.

Love's lawyer sent TMZ a statement claiming the suit is bogus, and that she's been beating her head against the wall for a long time now trying to reason with the credit card company.

Love's lawyer writes: "AmEx knows the claim has no merit. We have told them this for a long time. AmEx's lax policies allowed fraudulent transactions to be charged to my client's card."

UPDATE -- Keith Fink, Courtney's lawyer, tells us that 104 AmEx credit cards were taken out under Courtney's name or the name of her business -- and that all the charges attributed to Courtney weren't made by her. He also said it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out nobody takes out 104 credit cards!

B.S., as a longtime holder of an Amex card I know for a fact that they do not ......". allowed fraudulent transactions to be charged to my client's card."

I don't care who you are, I have never been backed better in this area by anyone credit card company.

For someone that owns the Cobain Music Library why doesn't she pay her bills?
Hell, I do... why can't she.

I don't believe these are fraudulent charges they are gong after.

63rd is meant for the first! jerks. Pharm jokes aside, she should pay her bill. How does AMex give a line of credit that "high" to a mess like she has been?

If she would quit beating her head against walls, maybe she'd have enough brain cells to realize that she owes people money. And to the person who said CC is a GREAT rock star and a GREAT musician, you must be banging your head against a wall also. Not only has she done nothing in the last ten years, but she can't play the guitar worth a pile of sh*t.
I've seen Hole in concert and they suck. I want My money back. Bang your head against the wall on that one.
