Courtney Love is being sued by her former legal representatives Keith A. Fink & Associates, who are seeking $466,029.41 (£299,505) in outstanding fees.

Her former lawyers filed the suit in Los Angeles, stating that she still hasn't paid the $518,640.66 (£333,317) worth of attorney's fees which she allegedly owes them from the 14 legal cases they worked on for her from January to October in 2009.

According to TMZ, the company claim that the Hole frontwoman sent "gifts, thank-you notes, flowers, tickets to concerts" to say thank you for their work, but added that most of her cheques bounced. They are now seeking $466,029.41 in back payments and late fees as well as punitive damages.

However, Love's representative Steve Honig went on to tell TMZ: "Courtney has not been served with anything, so as far as we're concerned there is no lawsuit. Additionally, Keith has not been her attorney for many years, so it's a bit odd that this would surface now."

In other legal matters regarding Courtney Love, it was recently revealed that a law firm is trying to convince Frances Bean Cobain to testify against her mother. According to the Hollywood Reporter, lawyers suing Courtney Love for defamation have issued a writ requesting her 19-year-old daughter make a statement clarifying her meaning when she said: "Twitter should ban my mother."

Frances called for Love to be banned from the social networking site after she used it to launch a tirade against her late husband Kurt Cobain's former Nirvana bandmate Dave Grohl, accusing him of making sexual advances on her daughter.

The legal case revolves around whether Love defamed Rhonda Holmes - of law firm Gordon & Holmes - in a 2010 tweet, when she wrote: "I was fucking devastated when Rhonda J Holmes esq of San Diego was bought off. I've been hiring and firing lawyers to help me with this."
