Courtney Love left Lily Allen in tears at last night's (24.02.10) NME awards.

The Hole singer argued with the 'Not Fair' star after reportedly taking offence at comments Lily, 24, had supposedly made on Twitter about her daughter Frances Bean Cobain.

The two singers were chatting amicably at first, before an insider said things: "Turned really nasty, really aggressive and b***hy."

The singers were then pulled apart - but both continued the fight from afar, with Courtney, 45, labeling Lily a "little girl."

Lily was equally as feisty, replying with "Why the f**k did you say that to me?" before leaving the awards.

This is not the first time the pair have been involved in a public slanging match.

Courtney was left unimpressed recently when 'The Fear' hitmaker made a deal with a luxury fashion house which stopped Courtney from wearing a gown to the BRIT Awards last week (16.02.10).

Courtney said: "I wanted a Chanel couture dress but Lily Allen blocked them out. And that's lame, because I remember J-Lo had a lock out on Valentino one year but she shared with me."
