Courtney Love sued by former assistant

2012-07-11 22:07
Los Angeles - Courtney Love's former assistant claims she asked her to counterfeit legal documents and hire a computer hacker.

Jessica Labrie has launched a lawsuit against the Hole  rocker, claiming she intentionally didn't pay her because she refused to "commit fraudulent, unlawful and unethical acts".

In the lawsuit for wrongful termination, wage and breach of contract lawsuit, Jessica - who is also writing a tell-all book about her time with Courtney, provisionally titled Get Me a Xanax - doesn't specify what her employer needed a hacker for, or what documents she was asked to alter.

In the lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles, she also claims she typically worked more than 60 hours a week for the star while she was employed from June 2010 to July 2011, but had to quit when Courtney wouldn't pay her properly.

She is seeking unspecified damages.

Jessica's book proposal for Get Me a Xanax  promises to reveal the darkest secrets of rock widow Courtney - who was married to Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain before his suicide in 1994 and is also mother to 19-year-old Frances Bean Cobain.

The proposal read: "This is an unprecedented glimpse into the daily life of the chaotic widow of Kurt Cobain, by an innocuous girl who had the extraordinary chance to witness it all."
