Just when you thought you had heard it all about Courtney Love comes another addition to this sideshow attraction’s life story. The latest tidbits come courtesy of her daughter Frances Bean who has famously fallen out with her train wreck of a mother, and apparently has no problems spilling the beans (excuse the pun).
A new book to be published about Courtney Love features extracts from statements made by Frances Bean where she alleges, amongst other things, that her mother is responsible for the death of two family pets, a cat and a dog.
The book’s author obtained the allegations about the pets when he was given copies of the sealed deposition papers that were drafted when Cobain filed a restraining order against Love back in 2009.
The now 19-year-old says in a sworn statement that the cat died after getting entangled in piles of fabrics, boxes of paperwork, trash and other possessions accumulated by Love. Frances Bean also claims that the dog died after it swallowed a pile of pills Love had left lying around. Sounds suspiciously like the pets wanted out if you ask us.
Love, who is never far from the headlines, has been in the media recently for a range of antics including pulling off the Soundwave Festival in 2012 because Limp Bizkit were billed above her, claiming that her late husband Kurt Cobain tried to kill himself three times as a result of over $250 million being stolen from the couple, and admitting to committing credit card fraud to undermine Dave Grohl, and that is just the beginning.
Frances also claimed she could no longer live with her mum because she was afraid that Love would set the fire to the house and burn them alive because she would often fall asleep while smoking in bed. “She basically exists now on…Xanax, Adderall, Sonata and Abilify, sugar and cigarettes,” Frances Bean said. “She rarely eats.”
Courtney has also been helping the writer, although if she had any brain cells left she’d stop. So far she’s offered up such pearls of wisdom as “I’ve never been good with numbers, but when I was on crack I could do math really, really well. I became a f–king wiz at calculus.”
The Hole singer insists she’s “not a junkie anymore,” because now she only gets bombed out of her mind on “legally prescribed” medications. “I’m sober,” she said. “I’m fabulous. I have a few character defects, but I’m not dishonorable, and I’m not a liar. I have a good heart. I’ve never claimed to be anyone’s role model. I’m not Mother Theresa. All I’m trying to do is stay alive.”
But Love does take exception to the accusations she killed the family pets with her hoarding. Jumping on her favourite soapbox Twitter, Love tweeted to her followers: “I’m a kitty killer! Who puts such an unjudged piece of trash in a madman’s (the author’s) hands? It was a mountain lion that killed Peabody!”
Sure Courtney, a mountain lion from the magical land of Cracklandia. Don’t forget to check out our slideshow of Frances Bean in a raunchy photoshoot.
