Courtney Love - Courtney Love Receives Honorary University Award

Subscribe to Courtney Love alerts

Courtney Love has been given an honorary patronage by an Irish university.

The Hole frontwoman was honoured yesterday (18.10.11) with the Trinity College Philosophical Society's Honorary Patronage, and posed for pictures and chatted about her life with students.

Courtney - who attended the institute for two semesters as a teenager - joins other famous faces including Bob Geldof, Naomi Campbell, David Hasselhoff and Al Pacino in receiving the honour.

The accolade is only awarded to people "whose contribution within their sphere is considered exceptional" and recipients are charged with "protecting the Society and using their good names to ensure its continued survival".

Meanwhile, a New York judge has ruled the rocker is liable for jewellery she failed to return after borrowing it for a charity event.

A lawsuit was filed last November by Jacob & Co who claimed Courtney borrowed two white gold and diamond chains, a white gold, floral-designed mesh bracelet and a pair of white gold and diamond hoop earrings but only returned the bracelet.

Ruling on Friday (14.10.11), Judge Doris Ling-Sohan said Courtney was liable for The Missing items - which the company valued at $113,700 - but wants a special referee to determine their value.

The case returns to court on December 2.

Jacob & Co's lawyer Jeffrey Klarsfeld previously said their agreement with the 47-year-old rocker specified she would be responsible for the gems "regardless of loss or damage".
