Courtney Love

Former Hole singer Courtney Love has been diagnosed with malnutrition, and she is blaming the stress of her ongoing fraud case for her huge weight loss.Courtney ignited fears for her health after she was photographed looking very skinny the past few months. The star is admitting that she has a real problem with her weight after doctors diagnosed her with malnutrition last month. Courtney tells Britain's Grazia magazine, "I know I've got too skinny. I know those pictures of me are going everywhere. I know I need to sort it out."I thought I was like 130 pounds, but I'm 118 pounds and I'm five feet 10 inches, that's not good for someone my height. I need to start working out again." Love is also blaming her weak frame on her legal fight with American Express. She has been accused of racking up a $350,000 bill on her credit card and the company's chiefs have filed suit against the star to try and reclaim the money.The 44-year-old insists she didn't spend the cash and has hired a private detective to track down the fraudsters. Love says, "It's the stress. You have no idea what it has been like these last few months. I need to get to the bottom of this fraud, I need answers. I've had to escape Los Angeles, I can't cope there anymore."But Courtney is very adamant she will recover and denies she has body dysmorphia, an obsession with an imaginary physical defect. She adds, "I'm drinking high-calorie shake and almond milk, whey protein and coconut and I just ate a whole croissant. I am eating now! I am going to put on 15 pounds in one month. I do not have body dysmorphia. Seriously, I want to get fatter. You know when I was 192 pounds, I thought I looked hot! I'm serious about putting on weight."
