(Newser) – Courtney Love, mother to Francis Bean, widow to Kurt Cobain, and unexplainable guest at Comedy Central's Pamela Anderson roast, is in the courts again. No drugs or assault on the docket this time: Beau Monde International, a plush rehab facility where Love spent three months in 2005, is trying to collect an unpaid tab totaling $181,000.

Beau Monde caters to the wealthy and addicted by offering massages, spa, and salon care along with treatment; about $36,000 of Love's bill was spent on "spa and other incidental costs." Love was ordered into rehab by a Los Angeles judge after violating the terms of her probation on drug and assault charges.
