Courtney Love ordered to pay $96k for defaming fashion designer
Washington: On the same day that Courtney Love got a victory in court when a new trial was denied to a person she allegedly defamed on Twitter, a judge ordered her to pay nearly 96,000 dollars to a second person she allegedly defamed.
Way back in early 2009, Love became the first celebrity to be sued over tweets.
The plaintiff in the case was Dawn Simorangkir, a fashion designer who became the target of Love`s rants.
But before the case ever got to trial, Love and Simorangkir settled the case for nearly 450,000 dollars, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Love made the first five payments, totaling 350,000 dollars. But she missed her 50,000-dollar payment due last January.
So, Simorangkir`s attorney brought a motion to enforce the settlement, which resulted in a judge`s decision on Tuesday to enter a judgment of 95,714.20 dollars-the remaining balance-in Simorangkir`s favor.
