Courtney Love files legal motion against townhouse eviction

Courtney Love is asking a Manhattan Housing Court judge to throw out landlord Astor Street Partners’ bid to have her evicted from the $7.5 million townhouse she’s renting at 250 West 10th Street, according to the New York Post, and has had her lawyer file a motion requesting the matter be dropped.

While last week it was reported that Love was facing the boot for allegedly causing more than $100,000 worth of damage to the building’s interior and owing $54,000 in back rent, her attorney is arguing that his client is up to date on rent and has actually made some improvements to the property during her 10-month stay, at a rent of $27,000 a month.

After a brief proceeding in court this morning, lawyer Eric Sherman told a reporter from the Post that Astor Street’s claims were baseless.

“The landlord had improperly sought three months rent at one time — including for the month of January,” he said. “[Love] paid the rent due Nov. 15, and again on Dec. 15, and she will pay again on Jan. 15.”

As for the supposed renovations, he added: “She’ll tell you herself the place is in better shape now than when she moved in.” [Post]
