Trouble seems to have a way of finding Courtney Love, but this time she says it came armed with metal bats and rocks.

While in Paris, the 50-year-old musician said demonstrators protesting Uber attacked the car that she was riding in. The protests by taxi drivers against the ride-hailing company in the French capital have turned violent, prompting police in riot gear to fire tear gas into the assembled masses.

Love described the scene on Twitter:

Kanye West has yet to reply via Twitter to Love’s request for asylum.

Courtney later added on Instagram: “how on earth are these people allowed to do this? the first car was destroyed, all tires slashed and beat with bats, these guys trying to open the doors and the cops are doing nothing?? French Taliban? civil reform needed in France?? I want to go home.”
