Just when we thought we had heard it all about Courtney Love, along comes a new book that details like never before her ongoing feud with estranged daughter Frances Bean Cobain.
And it's not pretty...
In Courtney Comes Clean, Frances alleges that her rocker mom is responsible for the death of a cat and a dog.
Writer Maer Roshan spent more than a year interviewing and communicating with Love for the book, the first in a series of e-books from the Fix, his website about addiction and recovery.
The animal allegations were obtained when Roshan 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 reportedly said in her sworn statement that her cat died after getting entangled in piles of fabrics, boxes of paperwork, trash and other possessions accumulated by Love. She also claimed that a dog died after swallowing a pile of Love's pills.
At the time, Cobain said she constantly worried her mom would start a fire because she would often fall asleep while she was smoking in bed. "She basically exists now on...Xanax, Adderall, Sonata and Abilify, sugar and cigarettes," Cobain said. "She rarely eats."
Among other revelations, Love says doing crack has its benefits. "I've never been good with numbers, but when I was on crack I could do math really, really well," the Hole singer said. "I became a f--king wiz at calculus."
Insisting she's "not a junkie anymore," Love says she currently only takes "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."
She went on to say, "I've never claimed to be anyone's role model. I'm not Mother Theresa. All I'm trying to do is stay alive."
