Just reading about the battles between Courtney Love and her daughter Frances Bean Cobain really tires us out. They’re so explosive! We’re going to hear a lot more from them after they read about this story put together by The Fix. Maer Roshan first interviewed Courtney back in 2010 and has kept in touch with her ever since. That interview was published last May, and now it’s being transformed into an e-book called Courtney Comes Clean that reveals a whole lot of other information about the troubled sometimes-singer. This includes some truly shocking details from Frances’ sealed deposition against her mother from 2009, and more drug-related confessions from Courtney.
The e-book tells us about some strange revelations about her crack use, detailing, “The strange thing is, while the crack screwed me up in a lot of ways, it improved me in certain others. I’ve never been good with numbers, but when I was on crack I could do math really, really well. I became a f—ing whiz at calculus.” Or how Frances Bean’s deposition states, “[Love] has taken drugs for as long as I can remember. She basically exists now on … Xanax, Adderall, Sonata and Abilify, sugar and cigarettes. She rarely eats …. She often falls asleep in her bed while she is smoking, and I am constantly worried that she will start a fire (which she has done at least three times) that will threaten our lives.”
It also reveals an incident outside former boyfriend James Barber’s home. Frances wrote, “She took me in a taxi to his house in the middle of the night, and from outside the house, in her bare feet, she screamed at him, threw rocks at the house and threatened to burn his house down. His children were inside the house, but that did not stop my mother.” Disturbing, but we have to admit, it’s an insanely compelling read.
