Apparently, singer Courtney Love may not have been the easiest celebrity client for a lawyer to represent.

She refused to meet in person, wanted to communicate in late-night phone calls and sent hundreds of texts that were “difficult and time-consuming” to try to understand, contends attorney Keith Fink in a lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court. He also alleges that Love failed to pay him more than $400,000 in fees owed to him for work performed between April 2009 and October 2009, when he stopped representing her, the Hollywood Reporter’s Hollywood, Esq. blog.

Love did ante up $82,000 and send him gifts, including flowers and framed gold records for Hole and Nirvana, the attorney notes.

Fink, who bills out his time at $595 an hour, is seeking $436,029.32, plus interest.

Love did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the entertainment publication.
