Surprise, someone was actually able to decipher some of Courtney Love’s tweets! And designer Dawn Simorangkir sued her over it — to the tune of $430,000!
Back in March 2010, the designer of the Boudoir Queen clothing line filed a lawsuit against Courtney for libel, breach of contract and a list of other items, saying that she was “the latest victim of Love’s volatile personality, hair trigger temper and malicious and tortious behavior.”
She said that Courtney spread lies about her on Twitter, claiming that she was a “vile horrible lying bitch on her Etsy site, calling her a cocaine dealer, thief, embezzler, racist and a homophobe. She also threatened her life and said that she was an “asswipe nasty lying hosebag thief” and would be “hunted til dead” during a series of Twitter messages in 2009.
Wow. Nice. I would sue, too!
Of course, these ill-advisedly aired grievances had to come from somewhere, and they stemmed from a would-be business transaction in February 2009. Boudoir Queen designed a custom dress for Love and sent along more than $4,000 worth of the line’s couture. So far, so good. Then, Simorangkir sent Love a bill. Oopsie.
While Courtney claimed she was merely expressing her opinion, Dawn claimed that her reputation was damaged. Courtney has to cough up the dough for her Twitter ranting….so maybe she’ll learn something for the next time she wants to call someone a lying thief?
