Courtney Love Found Liable For $100,000 Of Missing Jewelry And Receives Honor From Irish College

Courtney Love never seems to be without some kind of legal trouble.

This time a Manhattan judge has found the Hole front-woman responsible for more than $100,000 worth of borrowed jewelry from Jacob & Co. that went missing last year, reports the New York Post.

Love dripped herself in diamonds for a charity event called " The New Yorkers for Children Benefit." According to the Post court papers says Courtney borrowed "two ladies white gold diamond chains, one white gold floral mesh cuff bracelet, and one pair of gold diamond pave hoop earrings."

It's common for celebrities to borrow jewelry for special events, but usually the goods are returned.

Love claimed the staff of the Mercer Hotel, where she was then residing failed to return the bag she gave them containing the chains and earrings to Jacob & Co. The $70,000 bracelet, that Love gave to the hotel staff at a later date, was retuned to the jewelers.

Love's lawyer, James Janowitz, told the court, "I don't know what happened, but Courtney doesn't have the jewels," reports the Post. That reasoning wasn't enough for the judge to take Courtney's side, as he agreed the singer was responsible for value the missing jewelry.

At least there was some good news for the rock star.

Love was in Ireland yesterday to receive the Trinity College Philosophical Society's Honorary Patronage, reports The Winnipeg Free Press.

The singer attended the college for two semesters as a teen, and joins Bob Geldof, Naomi Campbell, David Hasselhoff and Al Pacino who have also received the award, which honors people "whose contribution within their sphere is considered exceptional" and recipients are charged with "protecting the Society and using their good names to ensure its continued survival".

It's not often Love receives positive attention so it's unfortunate that she forgot to remove the price tag from her Dolce and Gabbana jacket, notes The Daily Mail.

Just another Tuesday for Courtney Love.
