Jacob the Jeweler's company is suing Courtney Love for the return of almost $114,000 in borrowed accessories. Per the Post: "Jacob & Co. says in a lawsuit filed Monday that the singer borrowed two white gold and diamond chains, a white gold bracelet and a pair of white gold and diamond pave earrings on Sept. 21. The company says she’s returned only the bracelet, despite demands for the other pieces." Jacob himself is no angel: He was sentenced to federal prison in 2008 for lying to narcotics investigators.
