Anthony Bozza claims Love shortchanged him, paying only $100,000 (£67,000) of a $300,000 (£200,000) deal.

Bozza insists he was never officially fired as Love's biographer, but she informed him she'd hired another writer to complete the project via text.

In his lawsuit, the writer claims he incurred $10,000 (£6,250) in expenses researching the book, and blames the Hole rocker for the late delivery of his manuscript, stating she would disappear for months at a time.

Bozza is suing for breach of contract and full payment, plus interest.
