Courtney Love Townhouse

Courtney Love is firing back.

The controversy-prone singer is responding to reports that she's facing eviction from her $324,000 a year NYC townhouse for not paying rent and for altering the insides of the 19th century pad without permission.

So what kind of below-the-belt attacks is Love making about the building's P.O.'d owner? Read on to find out...

"I moved into this home only on the condition that I could paint it and when I leave, I'd restore it to exactly what it was," Love writes in a post on "Since I darkened the door she (the owner) has been vicious to me and my staff."

"Having a landlady tell you your Prelle, $2,000-a-yard 'destructive' is totally weird," she says. "My taste is artful and femme, but it's excellent. I'm 47, have bought and sold 14 houses (16 if you count Washington) and love doing them nicely and tripling the price; it's just never been a question, so this whole experience is weird as heck."

Love continues, "Donna Lyon, the owner, came over the other day and, after informing me that 'No one likes you, Courtney Love, NO ONE,' which made me cry, and proceeded to knock over a photo (she's rather... large) of me with Dame Elizabeth Taylor and shatter the mirrored frame."

Love has also filed a legal motion asking the court to throw out Lyon's petition to have her evicted from the townhouse claiming that she is all caught up on her rent and has actually improved the pad, according to the New York Post. A hearing on the matter is set for Jan. 13.

A rep for Lyon did not immediately comment for this story.
