Courtney Love Tried To Help Peaches Geldof

(Classic Rock) Courtney Love says she tried to help the late Peaches Geldof steer clear of drugs. The Hole singer recalls a night in a Los Angeles hotel room in 2010 when Peaches turned up with a friend who had a bag of opiate-based Oxycontin pills. Love says she refused to take any of the drugs in her room at the Chateau Marmont, hoping to be a good influence on Peaches.

Geldof died in April and postmortem tests revealed there was heroin in her system. That came as no surprise to Courtney Love. She tells Grazia: "You just can't believe it happened, its so f***ing tragic. This girl was vivacious, so full of life and it is weird and horrible that she has passed away. But then I read heroin was involved and I was not shocked. I know how Peaches liked opiates.

"My drug was heroin, I stopped taking it in the 90s, but I have taken the pills, the Roxycontin, Oxycontin. Peaches was unfortunately in my room with a friend who had a bag full of these drugs... like 500 pills and I wanted it so badly, never have I wanted anything more; no man, no money, and I had to physically push Peaches and her friend out the door. more on this story
