Courtney Love owes thousand of dollars. Well according to a New York-based artist Greg Frederick, he is claiming that the American alternative rock singer, songwriter, the frontwoman of Hole owes him because of designing merchandise for her tour. Frederick has been a fan of the fifty old for a long long time and in his words, what he is saying he had been promised by her a percentage of the money made from the sale of his own T-shirts at her concerts.
He told the New York Daily News newspaper: “It’s been devastating.
“My biggest dream has turned into my biggest nightmare. It has sunk me very low.”
What Frederick has explained is that so far he has not received in money, from the merchandise sales, despite his designs being sold on four of Courtney’s tours, including one with Lana Del Rey.
Frederick and Love started to work together when he was the one who contacted her on social media, saying his,
“wildest wish” would be to “work with Courtney Love and design her next concert tour T-shirt”.
And in an email written in June 2013, Courtney described his designs as “amazing”, adding: “We could make up to 5k a night if it’s done right.”
The ‘Hold On to Me’ singer also addressed the issue of paying the artist in an email exchange to her team.
She described the designer as “gay superfan kids, he’ll do it for free/very little and i’m all for it (sic).”
However, the contract states Frederick would “receive 7 percent of the gross merchandise sales … and 30 percent of the gross merchandise sales for his limited-edition prints”.
The artist claimed to have paid out of his own pocket to deliver the goods to concerts, while he also worked the merchandise stand at shows.
