MOJO Courtney Love was shocked when high-powered Hollywood lawyer Howard Weitzman contacted her and said he would be willing to represent her for free.
The 42-year-old star and widow of Kurt Cobain was arrested for allegedly attacking a woman with a liquor bottle at her ex-boyfriend’s home, as well as for drug possession.
She insists her legal troubles are now behind and credits Weitzman, who has also represented OJ Simpson and Michael Jackson, for giving her a chance at a new life.
“The thing is this great lawyer came in and saved the day. He’s a great guy named Howard Weitzman. Came in for free,” she said. “For most people it costs a lot of money to sit down with Howard. He came in and said, ‘I’ll represent you if you stop doing drugs, because I don’t like representing guilty people.’ I’ve honoured that for a year and three months now. I look better, feel better, (but) I have to deal with pain…which is not so fun.”
