Courtney Love has never been known as a blushing wallflower and has a rocky past of being too outspoken for her own good. In a March 26 filing, a fashion designer named Dawn Simorangkir is suing Love on six complaints ranging from invasion of privacy, infliction of emotional distress, and breach of contract.
In 2008, Simorangkir claims the singer approached her about designing clothes. After a small honeymoon period during which Love flew the Austin, TX-based designer and her husband out to Los Angeles for a meeting, the two had a quick falling out starting in February 2009 once Simorangkir asked for payment for a custom-made dress Love ordered.
The designer calls herself “the latest victim of Love’s volatile personality, hair trigger temper, and malicious tortuous behavior.” In the twenty-two page long document, Simorangkir also gives a list of Love’s Twitter and MySpace postings in which Love calls her a “drug addict and dealer” and “a thief a liar” who will eventually “end up in a circle of [s]corched earth hunted til your dead.”
For the six counts (libel, invasion of privacy-false light, intentional interference with a prospective economic advantage, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and two breach of contract charges), Simorangkir requests an array of punitive damages, attorneys’ fees, special damages, and general damages.
Calls to both parties’ lawyers were not immediately returned.
