Courtney Love’s Twitter Finally Gets Her Sued

The Hollywood Reporter takes a look at the curious case of Dawn Simorangkir, a fashion designer suing ex-friend Courtney Love for a series of defamatory tweets — including ones that allege Simorangkir was a "drug-pushing prostitute with a history of assault and battery who lost custody of her own child" — that she says seriously damaged her career. THR calls it "the first high-profile defamation trial over a celebrity’s comments on Twitter" and is very interested in the precedents that will be set by the outcome. Vulture, though, is more comforted by the fact that the celebrity involved in "the first high-profile defamation trial over a celebrity’s comments on Twitter" is, of course, Courtney Love. Have you ever read that Twitter? It's insane! It was only a matter of time. [Esq./HR via NME]
