A newly released biography of Courtney Love (humorously titled Courtney Comes Clean) contains shocking but predictable revelations from Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of Love and grunge god Kurt Cobain.
The details, in the form of an unsealed deposition from a 2009 restraining order against Love, include such zingers as Frances’ claim that her mother “basically exists now on … Xanax, Adderall, Sonata and Abilify, sugar and cigarettes,” and that Love’s excessive habits led to the death of two family pets: A dog that ODed on Love’s pills and a cat that became trapped in piles of hoarded fabrics, trash, and paperwork.
Love, who fronted the ’90s rock group Hole, is quoted in the book, saying, “I’m sober. 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.” Frances Bean is now a model and artist in L.A.
