In your meta-legal news of the day, Courtney Love is being sued by her former lawyers over unpaid legal bills, according to Rolling Stone.

"We simply were not paid money that we earned," lawyer Keith A. Fink told the magazine. "I finally got tired of the repeated promises by Courtney's business manager that we would be paid and thus filed this lawsuit."

Fink is hoping to recover more than $460,000 in back payments, plus damages.

Love is no stranger to the courtroom, having been sued for defamation via inflammatory tweets in 2011 (she settled for $430,000) and recently winning a case brought against her by her landlord for alleged unpaid rent.
