Courtney Love claims millions have been stolen

Courtney Love has landed her lipstick-smeared smile firmly in the spotlight once again, but this time it's money, not ashes, that have been stolen from her. The first widow of rock claims that  as much as $530 million may have been nabbed from the fortune she inherited from her husband. Her lawyer, Rhonda J. Holmes, blames Love's investors.

Though Holmes admits they've only been able to confirm $30 million missing, she speculates it's much more. "I have never seen such greed and moral turpitude. This case is going to make Bernard Madoff look warm and fuzzy," she told the New York Post. 

Love reportedly only found out the money was missing when she went to check on it, and there was simply none left. A team of private investigators is looking into the theft.
