Courtney Love's ex-assistant is suing over unpaid wages and unethical requests the singer made, claiming she was instructed to hire a hacker and falsify legal letters.
On Tuesday, Jessica Labrie filed a wrongful termination and breach of contract suit in a Los Angeles courtroom.
According to the lawsuit, Labrie worked for Love for about a year from 2010-2011 but was let go when she complained about thousands of dollars in unpaid wages and business trip expenses. The suit also claims Labrie suffered headaches, insomnia and other medical conditions as a result of Love’s conduct. Her attorney, Joshua Gruenberg, stated that Love wanted a hacker to change records to businesses she owned or believed she owned, but Labrie refused.
Labrie is seeking unspecified damages for alleged wrongful termination, failure to pay wages and overtime, negligent misrepresentation, breach of contract and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
