Courtney Love has been ordered to pay out over $35,000 in unpaid wages to her former maids.

The Hole frontwoman was taken to court by two former staff members – named Miriam and Myriam – who alleged she never paid them for working in her home several years ago.

A judge in Beverly Hills has now ruled that the 46-year-old star – who has an 18-year-old daughter, Frances Bean, with late husband Kurt Cobain – must pay $16,632.45 to Miriam and $19,137.27 to Myriam, totalling $35,769.72 in wages, penalties and interest.

The news comes days after it was revealed Courtney's former attorney is suing her over comments she made on twitter.

Rhonda Holmes has alleged the 'Malibu' hitmaker has damaged her career after using the microblogging website to accuse her former legal representative of taking bribes.

Courtney – who hired Rhonda's firm Gordon & Holmes to investigate whether money had been stolen from Kurt's estate, but fired her six months later - wrote on a now-defunct account on the website: "I was f**king devastated when Rhonda J Holmes Esq of San Diego was bought off."

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Gordon & Holmes claim the singer lashed out after Rhonda asked her to refrain from "any and all substance abuse" while they worked together.
