Courtney Love is at it again!
The Hole frontwoman is reportedly being evicted from her New York City pad after the owner of the property discovered the house to be a wreck with the rocker also late on $50,000 in rent.
According to the New York Post, owner Donna Lyon is taking Love to court over the four-story West 10th Street house that she’s been renting for just ten months that carries a whopping $27,000 a month payment. Lyon claims Love has ruined the home’s designer interior by painting over fancy hand-finished walls and has continuously been delinquent on her payments.
Lyon purchased the residence just last year for a cool $8 million. Describing it to the Post, she said, “It was decorated by the previous owner, interior designer Steven Gambrel. One of the requirements of the lease is that nothing should be done to the interiors.”
She then described the mess that Love has reportedly made. “I came to New York to see it and I was horrified by what she had done,” she told the Post. “The walls that had been hand-painted and glazed were ruined, covered in damask wallpaper and ice-blue paint.” (In Love’s defense, ice blue sounds like a pretty rad color choice.)
The home was even featured in an Elle Décor article back in 2009. Lyon estimates that repairs could cost upwards of $100,000 and take up to twelve weeks to complete.
The New York Post reached out to Love for comment but never heard back from her or her representative. The case will be heard in Manhattan’s civil court on December 21.
