Courtney Love Suing A Lawyer For Ruining Her Relationship With Her Daughter
Posted by Joseph Lee on 11.01.2013
TMZ reports that Courtney Love is suing attorney Rhonda J. Holmes for allegedly ruining her relationship with her daughter Frances Bean Cobain.
Love hired Holmes in 2008 to locate millions of dollars that she thought was stolen from the Kurt Cobain estate. She said Holmes spent months on the case but never made any progress because she was "too busy" with other things. She also thinks that Holmes tried to undermine her by writing a secret letter to Frances, who was sixteen at the time. The letter warned her of a "very scary conspiracy" and that people were trying to get her.
It said: "The sooner I have your support and hence the support of your Trust Fund, the sooner I can ease this matter out of your Mom's hands."
Love said she didn't know about the letter for two years and it shouldn't have been written as its' a violation of attorney-client confidentiality. The letter also ruined her relationship with Frances by convincing her that Love could not be trust to make decisions.
Love is suing Holmes for legal malpractice and claims she suffered emotional distress.
