Courtney Love's lawyers are attempting to cut ties with the Hole frontwoman, claiming she owes them money and is "completely unresponsive" to their attempts to contact her.

Love hired the Pryor Cashman firm to help defend her when her former lawyer, Rhonda Holmes, said Love defamed her on Twitter. They also helped Love win her New York eviction case at the beginning of the year.

Now, however, the firm have submitted a declaration to Los Angeles Superior Court, reports Hollywood Reporter, stating:

Ms Love is completely unresponsive to Pryor Cashman's attempts to contact her. She has cancelled meetings with me [partner James Janowitz] with barely any notice on several occasions and has refused to return the calls of other attorneys on her legal team at the firm.


It continues: "She has also refused to respond to our letters. As a result, we have had no substantive communication with Ms Love in several months and we cannot effectively represent her."

Earlier this month, Courtney Love apologised to her teenage daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, for claiming Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl tried to seduce the 19-year-old. Love made the accusations in early April on Twitter, saying that her daughter's roommate had told her that Grohl had "hit on Frances".

Frances Bean then called on Twitter to ban her mother from using the social networking site. Frances stated that nothing untoward happened with the Foo Fighters frontman, insisting she has "never been approached" by Grohl.

Meanwhile, Courtney Love reunited with the mid-'90s line-up of Hole for the first time in 15 years in New York on April 13. The singer was beckoned onstage by bassist Melissa Auf der Maur at an after-party for Hit So Hard, a documentary about drummer Patty Schemel, at the city's Public Assembly venue. Love sang a version of Hole's 1994 single 'Miss World', before returning for an encore cover of legendary punk group the Wipers' 'Over The Edge'.
