Courtney Love

Hole singer Courtney Love is being evicted from her West Village townhouse in Manhattan.  Allegedly, she set it on fire and ruined the decor.  Love had been renting the four-story building for 10 months with rent set at $27,000 a month.  The reckless musician owes $54,000 in rent, according to the building owner.  Additionally, she went against her lease by changing the interior.

“Courtney has wallpapered and painted a large portion of the property without my consent,” owner Donna Lyon told the New York Post. “I learned about this when I wanted to sell the house and had photographs taken. They sent me the brochure and I said, ‘This can’t be my property.’ I came to New York to see it and I was horrified by what she had done. The walls that had been hand-painted and glazed were ruined, covered in damask wallpaper and ice-blue paint.”

The historical house was originally decorated by the previous resident, interior designer Steven Gambrel.

Lyon’s laywer, Norman Flitt said Love “has taken a historical house done by a recognized designer, and has taken upon herself to redecorate it. It Is tantamount to destroying a work of art.”

Love is set to appear in a civil court case on Dec. 21 in Manhattan.
