Courtney Love knows all too well how hard drug addiction can be. So when she saw her friend Peaches Geldof using, she tried her hardest to get her to stop.
Miz Love is now opening up about being horrified to see Peaches visit her in Los Angeles before her death, bringing with her a friend carrying a SLEW of prescription drugs.
"My drug was heroin, I stopped taking it in the 90s, but I have taken the pills, the Roxycontin, Oxycontin. Peaches was in a room with a friend who had a bag full of these drugs, like 500 pills and I wanted it so badly, never have I ever wanted anything more - no man, no money - and I had to physically push Peaches and her friend out of the door.”
"I was shaking and I kept thinking of the way her mother died and I thought I owe it to this girl to be an example. I was trying to help her, but at that point in her life, it proved to be impossible. Now the parallels to her mommy are horrific. It terrifies me for my own child."
Courtney is of course referring to Peaches mother Paula Yates who died of a heroin overdose in 2000.
Fourteen years later, it’s Peaches who we lost to suspected substance abuse.
We only wish Courtney could have convinced Peaches that clean living is the only way to LIVE!
Rest in peace, Miz Geldof.
