We’ve noted how Courtney Love became the first celebrity sued for defaming another individual on Twitter and the audacious response she filed in the case claiming the plaintiff was a drug-pushing, racist prostitute.
Based on her tweets in the last 24 hours, we can expect more interesting legal action involving the singer.
Perhaps most fascinating, Love is threatening to sue Activision, the makers of Guitar Hero video game, over the latest installment of the franchise.
In Guitar Hero 5, game-players who successfully complete a series of challenges are given the opportunity to be Kurt Cobain rocking to “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and “Lithium.” There’s even an option to have Cobain lip-sync to Bon Jovi, Public Enemy, Megadeth, and others. (Check out a video.)
“(I) never singed off on the avatar, let alone this fucking feature!” she tweeted about her late husband’s Guitar Hero image. “There’s been four breaches of a very strict contract.”
She adds that she’s disgusted by Activision and pledges to sue.
Love’s outrage seems to be tied into some money troubles she’s been having and some lingering difficulties over the Cobain estate. She claims on Twitter that her daughter Frances Bean is “penniless” and notes (all spelling/grammar errors are hers) that she “was forced by lying bankerlawyers to sell some publishing…wich forces me to lose some power, the loser bully who put money in the bank commissioned illegally a child and then stole every pennydid it.”
Got that? She also has some choice words for her former attorney Howard Weitzman that we won’t repeat because we know Weitzman is a good defamation lawyer.
