Oh wow. So terrible…
In a new book, Courtney Comes Clean, writer Maer Roshan spent more than a year interviewing and communicating with Courtney Love to write his book.
He also researched Courtney's daughter Frances Bean Cobain, including looking over several pages of the sealed deposition papers that were drafted when Frances filed a restraining order against Courtney back in 2009.
And now we know why a restraining order was requested.
The book describes how Frances alleged that Courtney was responsible for the death of her pets, a cat and a dog, due to her hoarding and her drugging.
In a sworn statement, Frances said that her cat died after getting entangled in piles of fabrics, boxes of paperwork and trash that Courtney had accumulated over the years.
She also said that her dog died after swallowing some of Courtney's pills.
Frances also said she was worried that her mom would start a fire in the house because she often fell asleep smoking a cigarette.
And according to her, Courtney lives on just pills and cigs. Frances said:
"She basically exists now on…Xanax, Adderall, Sonata and Abilify, sugar and cigarettes. She rarely eats."
Love says that she's "not a junkie anymore," but that she only takes "legally prescribed medications."
Mmm-hmm. Those can still do some major damage.
Poor Frances. She's gone through so much at such a young age and never had an actual adult role model to look up to.
We're amazed at how normal she's become.
Courtney needs help. Major, major help.
