Judge To Rule On Love Psych Exam
A judge in Seattle says he'll decide in seven to 10 days whether to order Courtney Love to have a psychological examination.A judge in Seattle says he'll decide in seven to 10 days whether to order Courtney Love to have a psychological examination. As previously reported, lawyers for former Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic want a judge to make Love submit to an evaluation. The pair has been battling Love over the partnership they formed to administer the Nirvana catalog after her husband, Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain, committed suicide in April 1994.
Love is looking to dissolve the partnership, claiming her judgment was "significantly impaired" when she signed the agreement. Lawyers for Grohl and Novoselic argue that a provision was included in the contract to be evaluated because of Love's history of drug abuse. Love's attorney says it's bizarre and denounces the idea that there is any evidence that Love is mentally incompetent.
In other news, Grohl is rumored to be sitting in with comedy rock duo Tenacious D for its set on Sunday (April 28) at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif. Grohl played drums on the majority of the D's self-titled Epic debut, and stars as the Devil in the group's new video, "Tribute." He will also be drumming for Queens Of The Stone Age and performing with Foo Fighters at Coachella this weekend.
