Courtney Love

Sued after Using Protection

9/11/2009 7:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It costs a lot of money to keep the world safe from Courtney Love -- her former bodyguards say she stiffed them out of $60,000 this year.

Screen International Security Services filed a lawsuit today in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming they provided "security services, in connection with the protection of Love, her family members, and her property" between April and August of this year.

SISS says Love never paid a penny for services rendered -- totaling $58,222.50 -- and are suing for the full amount plus interest.

Love's attorney just sent us the following statement:

"This lawsuit should be placed in the Wikipedia page next to chutzpah. It has no merit and is based on a private security company's attempt to fleece a celebrity.

SISS is claiming it is owed money for providing around the clock security for Ms. Cobain and her daughter at the St. Ives home for a period of time she and her daughter were NOT living at that home but were living at the Chateau Marmont. SISS has no written agreement with Ms Cobain to support their claim and on its face it is ludicrous.

SISS was paid a substantial sum for the "service" it provided while they were living at that home. Despite knowing that Ms. Cobain and her daughter had moved out of the home they continued to provide security to an empty home by having someone sit in a car all day eating a ham sandwich while the Cobains were residing miles away!!!

Guess the whole faux-anger at Guitar Hero (or was it Rock Band) was just a ploy to get the money to pay her bodyguards!

I'm on Courtney's side on this one. She is so gross that she doesn't need bodyguards. The Larry Flynt movie's got nothing on this: http://www.ksne.com/pages/tomchase.html

Gee Whiz, WHAT's there to ' protect ' in her ? Any robber would lookat her and take off running; GIVING her some money. Grrrrrrr, Courtney, for christs sakes, BUY a new ward drobe and stop running around looking like a ' strung out junkie '. It's a shame you inherited all of Kurts $$$$$, most of which you have no doubt used to fuel your drug habit.

SISS IS THE STUPID PARTY HERE. FOR THREE MONTHS THEY NEVER SENT A BILL FOR SERVICES RENDERED? WTF, DID THEY SAY THEY'D WAIT TO SEND A BILL AFTER ALL SERVICES HAVE BEEN RENDERED, EVEN AFTER A PERIOD OF MONTHS? SOUNDS FISHY TO ME.

There is no way that the bodyguards are going to get their money.

Courtney Love, Kurt Cobain's answer to why this planet was not for him anylonger. And, now that she has already gone through his fortune and licenced off more of his stuff that Krusty the Klown, she is irate with Guitar Hero for doing what they are paying the Cobain trust for - and by the way when a woman who has been stoned or drunk or both and jet setting all over the world for the majority of the last 20 years starts screaming about victimization - I say get a grip. I cannot wait for the day when she does not have one cent left from Cobain's fortune and actually has to go out and make money on stage or as a "fashion icon".
