Assault victim sues Courtney Love

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 20 (UPI) -- A woman that rock star-actress Courtney Love admitted to attacking in 2004 is now suing for damages in Los Angeles, it was reported Tuesday.

Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred announced she has filed suit on behalf of musician Kristen King, who was sleeping on the couch of Love's former boyfriend when she was assaulted, KABC-TV, Los Angeles, reported.

Allred said Love poured whiskey on King and the alcohol bottle struck the woman's left cheekbone and temple. Love allegedly then threw a lit candle at King, jumped on top of her and dug her fingernails into King's left forearm and bicep.

Love also allegedly yanked King by the hair, backhanded her, chipping one of King's teeth, and pinched her breast, leaving a bruise, Allred said.

Love -- who is currently in court-ordered drug rehab -- pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault and paid roughly $2,700 to King. However, Allred said that was not nearly enough.

"We think it is time for Ms. Love to take full financial responsibility for her assault on Ms. King," she said.
