Courtney Love’s ex-assistant describes her as ‘drug addict’

Washington: One of Courtney Love’s former assistant is said to be trying to sell a new book, claiming to offer the singer’s deepest darkest secrets, involving her derailed love life and rampant denial of serious drug problems.

The book, which has been tentatively entitled ‘Get Me a Xanax’, is being shopped around to major literary agents in New York by a woman named Jessica Labrie, who worked for the 47-year-old from 2010-2011.

“This is an unprecedented glimpse into the daily life of the chaotic widow of Kurt Cobain, by an innocuous girl who had the extraordinary chance to witness it all,” a website has quoted the proposal of the book as saying.

Labrie makes many allegations in her proposal, including how the musician torpedoed several romantic relationships with her obsessive behaviour, and still abuses cocaine and prescription drugs like Adderall and Xanax despite telling people she’s been “clean and sober for years”.

Love, however, insists that she hasn’t taken Adderall since November 2010 and is adamant she never took cocaine when Labrie worked for her.

“I hate cocaine,” Love said.

She did admit that she takes Xanax, but has a prescription.
