Courtney Love in suicide drama

Courtney Love performing in July, 2007
Right after Courtney Love said that someone stole her late husband Kurt Cobain’s ashes, leaving her “suicidal,” police were called to her home to intervene in a reported suicide attempt. Courtney was sleeping at the time and someone pranked her by calling the cops and claiming she was suicidal. Cops had a “5150″ order with them, which gives them the authority to take someone to a psychiatric facility, but Courtney somehow convinced them in her slurry stream of consciousness way that she was completely surprised to see them and was sober and sleeping before they came.

The National Enquirer reports this news in their latest issue and adds that detail that she’s suing some employees for allegedly stealing $22 million from her. It’s unclear whether this is related to the $72 million she claims was plundered from her husband’s estate through identity theft:

Courtney was terrified as the drama unfolded during the weekend of June 7, and the Enquirer has learned exclusively that the “suicide call” to police was a cruel hoax against the 43-year-old singer.

Courtney was asleep in her home on the border of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood when her house servant was awakened in the middle of the night by loud banging. She answered the front door and was shocked to see 10 police officers standing there.

“An officer held up a ’5150 order,’ a police form which allows them to haul someone off to a psychiatric ward,” said the insider. “The house servant went up to Courtney’s room and woke her. Courtney was bleary-eyed and very scared when she saw all the officers.

According to the insider, the officers explained that they had obtained the order because of a report they had just received claiming she was trying to take her life.

“She convinced them that there was no truth to it, and they finally agreed to leave without her. But she was extremely shaken.”

The article goes on to say that police would not reveal who made the call. They also note that Courtney “is in the middle of a legal battle after claiming her employees allegedly stole $22 million from her,” and that “the employees have also filed a counterclaim.”

The National Enquirer’s source say Courtney is doing fine and is finishing work on a new album. I guess she wasn’t suicidal over losing Kurt’s ashes for long.

Courtney Love was seen riding in a grocery cart over the weekend. She told paparazzi she’d broken her toes.

    Her upper arms are like ‘anti-Madonna’ arms

    She’s self destructing, but this time for good.

  3. Lloyd says:

    I’m surprised her arms aren’t covered with ink, aren’t you? Weird.

  4. Bodhi says:

    Wouldn’t the cops be able to check her phone records & figure out that she hadn’t called?

  5. Kaiser/ Hippacrat says:

    I think the call probably came from inside the house, Bodhi.

    Cue dramatic music.

    i am sick of this no talent drama whore.

  7. Amy says:

    There have been rumblings around Hollywood that she has AIDS, which might explain the weight loss and those huge bags of pills she carries around. I mean, she’s adamant that she’s sober now, yet she has been photographed with a million bottles of pills in a plastic bag.

    Of course, all her issues are par for the course with Courtney, but I’ve heard many people say she’s sick.

  8. Lola says:

    If it is her wish, let her exit the world and rest in peace. It is the best for her and her daughter.

    Karma always wins in the end.

    This picture is a year old! She doesn’t look like that anymore!! She has recovered.

  11. Snowblood says:

    Recovered!! :lol: :lol: Prissa, this bitch is no more recovered than Amy Winehouse – and there are very recent photos of her which speak volumes about her current state of junkie-ness. There are only a handful of celebs out there whom I really do despise, and this bitch is one of them.

    Oh, and identity thieves stole $72 million from her? :lol: Of course! Yes, we believe you, Courtney, we believe all of your crazy drivel since everyone knows how honest and forthright true lifelong junkies really are.

    God how I loathe this ugly-spirited woman! She’s got rot in her soul, some secret rot which over the years has worked on her from the inside out like Smeagal turning into Gollum. Except I have to admit I do like ONE, just one of her songs, Dollheart. But I despise the individual, and I always have. She’s always been full of shit.

    i’m a little baffled by the fact that she has a “house servant”. that’s got to be awkward to write on the ol’ tax forms.

  13. jinx says:

    I really like her, she’s just amazing in so many ways. Say what you will but she’s a really good actress. The personal stuff with her is always going to be insane, it’s Courtney thing. I do feel bad for her that she lost the ashes of Kurt. Even if you hate her, that sucks on a major level.

  14. stellapurdy says:

    How do you lose the ashes of your husband exactly?

    something smells as fishy as I’m certain her privates do.

  15. KattyBitch says:

    She probably snorted them and forgot

  16. Mark says:

    Do it ! Do it ! Do it ! Pleeeeease ! ! ! The world needs to be rid of you.
