Another day, another Ryan Adams news item

Bookmark and Share

Two of the most volatile spheres of the online celebrity-music universe collided early Saturday morning, in the form of a crazed and furious blog post from Courtney Love. In it, Love accuses former Raleighite Ryan Adams of running up $858,000 on her credit cards to make his 2003 album "Rock N Roll" (which was produced by her then-beau, Jim Barber) and generally gets her rant on in that inimitable C-Lo style.

It is, of course, NSFW. But what the heck, it's the weekend.

If it comes to the writing of checks, perhaps this can be tapped?

(Thanks, Thomas.)

UPDATE (7/21/08): For whatever it's worth, the post in question seems to have disappeared from Love's MySpace blog.

ADDENDUM (7/24/08): Further legal trouble for Love.

FURTHER (7/31/08): Ryan responds? Hmm...
