Courtney Love thanks legal team after 'Twibel' victory

Courtney Love thanks legal team after 'Twibel' victory

Listen to Courtney Love on iHeartRadio

Courtney Love says she's feeling "really good" after being found not liable of defaming her former lawyer with a tweet. 

The jury in her so-called "Twibel" trial delivered the verdict on Friday, and the rocker told "Spin" afterward that she was "happy to have good counsel for the first time in 24 years." 

Love -- who wasn't actually in the courtroom to hear the earlier-than-expected verdict -- also took to Twitter to thank her legal team for helping her win what she called an "epic battle." 

Love's trial centered around a tweet she sent in 2010 that said her former lawyer, Rhonda Holmes, had been "bought off."  She argued that she intended to send the comment as a direct message to only a few people, but instead accidentally made it public. 

Holmes sued for libel in 2011, but the jury decided Friday that Love did not act with malice.
