Courtney Love Sued For Tweeting – Again

Tech Dirt and Entertainment Weekly are reporting that Hole lead singer, and Kurt Cobain widow, Courtney Love, has been sued by her former lawyer, Rhonda Holmes, for Twitter-based defamation.

According to the reports, attorney Holmes represented Love in an attempt to regain money allegedly stolen from the estate of Love’s former husband, Cobain.  Love then fired Holmes’ firm, but a few months later sought to rehire the firm.  The firm declined.  Love responded on Twitter, writing, “‘I was f—ing devastated (sic) when Rhonda J Holmes Esq of San Diego was bought off,’ suggesting that outside forces had bribed Holmes into not working with Love,” according to Entertainment Weekly.

You may recall that Love recently settled a separate Twitter-related defamation lawsuit in March of 2011.   She paid fashion designer Dawn Simorangkir $430,000 after allegedly making defamatory statements on Twitter and MySpace.
