First it was Chris Rock and the case of the one night stand gone bad. Now the HuffPo's Allison Hope Weiner is back with another tape of Anthony Pellicano, this time chatting with Courtney Love. "The problem is that I have so many problems," the rocker/actress tells the PI in what sounds like their first phone exchange. Among the details dropped into the conversation, Love delves into her various legal disputes, even name-dropping a few L.A. lawyer bigwigs (welcome to the Pellicano mess, Russ Frackman!) and noting her own burgeoning legal skills. "I could pass the Bar now, Anthony. I could pass the Bar," she says.
We'll let the curious click over for the full conversation, but here's our favorite back-and-forth:
Love: I need everything from refinement to fucking baseball bats, and I need them all under one roof.
Pellicano: Courtney, if you come to me, that's the end of that. I'm an old style Sicilian. I only go one way. My clients are my family, and that's it. You fuck with my family, you fuck with me.
