Courtney Love has dramatically lost weight and appeared gaunt and thin as she was spotted leaving a taxi in New York this week
Courtney Love's dramatic lost weight has sparked fears for her health.
The Hole singer raised concerns after photographs were released of her looking gaunt as she stepped out of a cab in New York this week.
An onlooker said: "Courtney looked worryingly thin, like skin and bones. Her figure is so tiny that it made her head look too big for her body."
Courtney - widow of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, who committed suicide in 1994 - has previously battled fluctuating weight and admitted to having an eating problem.
Earlier this year she confessed she had wanted to get a gastric band fitted to limit her intake of food but was told by doctors she was not fat enough.
She said: "If I could get a gastric band I would. I've heard it's a lot of vomiting and a pain in the a*s, but it's still easier than a diet."
Courtney was believed to be in New York visiting a bank in connection with a $350,000 lawsuit American Express has filed against her over an alleged unpaid credit card.
In a separate incident she claims her late husband's $750 million legacy has been stolen after thieves set up bank accounts and made property deals in her name.
