Courtney Love managed to grab herself some headlines yesterday after surfacing in New York looking like- well- an emaciated drug addict.
Love, 44, is currently in the midst of a few financial setbacks, including a disputed $350,000 debt with American Express and a pending lawsuit regarding the mishandling of late-husband Kurt Cobain’s estate. In the past, Love has wrangled legally with former Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Kris Novoselic over Nirvana’s post-Cobain finances. The controversial snaps were taken as Courtney exited a cab to visit a New York City bank.
Love has publicly struggled with her weight in the past and admitted to having tried to get a gastric band. She was denied for not meeting minimum weight requirements. She also has inadvertently exposed some pretty gnarly plastic surgery.
Courtney recently announced that she’s getting the band back together for a late 2009/early 2010 album entitled “Nobody’s Daughter.” However, Hole bassist Melissa Auf Der Maur was confused by the news, telling reporters in Toronto she hadn’t heard anything about a planned reunion and stated:
“I actually don’t know. I have no idea. I arrived at North By Northeast and I heard that Hole were getting back together from people sending me links.”
