Singer, actress and Kurt Cobain's widow Courtney Love could no longer remember her 10 Barclays accounts in the UK, has lost her account numbers and even forgot the name of the bank, the Daily Mail reported.
Ms Love claimed that she had deposited millions of pounds into her accounts, which she could no longer access. She sought the help of Greymans, a well-known private security company hired by celebrities and high net-worth individuals.
According to The Mail, Greymans hired convicted private detective Adam John Spears to retrieve Ms Love's bank records who then hired a robber identified as Daniel Summer to trace her missing millions.
The two were involved in Operation Millipede, the group responsible for blagging and unlawfully hacking bank statements, mobile phone bills, medical and police records of victims. They were among the five suspects and both of them pleaded guilty and were jailed at Kingston Court in 2012.
The Mail revealed email exchanges between Mr Spears and Greymans financial controller Andy Driver. The ex-Hole lead singer was referred to as "Eustace".
Mr Spears emailed Mr Driver who inquired "If I have it right, this is the "famous" client who seems to have mislaid her funds?" He then told Mr Driver that he will get "Summers" to locate Ms Love's money.
Mr Summers was believed to have telephoned British banks and pretended to be Ms Love using a text-to-voice device ford deaf people to disguise as the singer.
He then found Ms Love's 10 Barclay accounts but there were no millions. "He just found a few pence and a few pounds in each," the source close to the Serious Organized Crime Agency (SOCA) investigation said.
The 49-year-old singer has not confirmed about this issue as of the moment. Meanwhile, she has confirmed in July that her latest solo album "Died Blonde" will be released on Dec 25.
Ms Love has currently taken interest in craft work through a web site called Etsy after declaring her celibacy in a 2010.
She told Vanity Fair: "You know, I declared celibacy for two years and I learned how to do all of this stuff. I learned how to crochet, how to knit, how to solder, how to do resin work, how to make altered books. You know, crafty shit. It’s not like I was going to open an Etsy store—Courtney’s Crafty Cuckoo—but the clothes were initially made for me for the record."
