Courtney Love is being sued for a former assistant who alleges malice, evil motives and despicable conduct on behalf of the Hole singer. Anyone surprised?

Jessica Labrie was hired by Love in June 2010 as an administrative assistant / “forensic research aide” for $30 an hour. Not a bad gig if you can get it!

Well, unless your boss is Courtney Love, a bona fide nut job whose own daughter emancipated herself and who makes Horrible Bosses quotes look tame.

Long story short … do not work for this chick, bad job market or not.

Among Labrie’s allegations, per the legal complaint:

  • Love had her working 60-hour-plus weeks without overtime
  • Love asked her to hire a computer hacker
  • Love directed her to send fake legal correspondence
  • Love promised to help with Labrie’s Yale tuition and did not, nor did she pay any promised bonuses or land her a promised job on the set of a Nirvana biopic.

Labrie also states that, in addition to repeatedly asking for the money she was owed, she voiced concerns about the musician’s unethical and illegal activity.

She is seeking damages for wrongful termination, failure to pay wages, negligent misrepresentation, breach of contract and infliction of emotional distress.
