Courtney Love ordered to pay cash for losing jewellery

Courtney Love is once again embroiled in controversy after she was ordered to pay £60,000 to a jeweller for not returning a glittering array of jewellery.

The former wife of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain had borrowed a white gold mesh bracelet, two white gold diamond chains and a pair of gold diamond hoop earrings for a charity event called The New Yorkers for Children Benefit.

Love had been entrusted with the items by Jacob & Co, a jeweller that is popular among celebrities.

Justice Doris Ling-Cohan said in court: "Love states that, after the charity event, she placed both chains and the earrings in a bag and delivered them to the staff at the Mercer Hotel, where she was residing at the time, with instructions to return it to Jacob.

"Love alleges that the Mercer staff returned the bracelet to Jacob, but that they lost the bag containing the chains and earrings."

Although he conceded that she may have lost them, it was still her responsibility and therefore she was liable to pay a fraction of the cost of the jewels.
