Courtney Love Says Peaches Geldof Once Visited Her with a Bag Full Drugs

Courtney Love talks about the time Peaches Geldof showed up at her hotel room with a bag full of prescription pills.

In this week’s issue of Grazia, we talk exclusively to the planet’s most famous female rock-star, the one and only Courtney Love. In an access all areas chat, conducted in her dressing room at Shepherd’s Bush Empire while eating cheese and drinking fine French plonk chosen by Stephen Fry, Ms Love had a lot to say to Grazia’s Emily Maddick.
On Peaches Geldof's recent death – and how she tried to help her
‘You just can't believe it happened, its so f***ing tragic,' she says. 'This girl was vivacious, so full of life and it is weird and horrible that she has passed away.’ Courtney says she was shocked because, like many others, she thought Peaches turned her life around.
‘But then I read heroin was involved and I was not shocked. I know how Peaches liked opiates.' Courtney recalls a time in 2010, when Peaches was living in Los Angeles and heavily in to drugs. She came to see her at the Chateau Marmont with a friend who had a bag full of prescription drugs including the opiate-based Oxycontin, known as 'hillbilly heroin.'
'My drug was heroin, I stopped taking it in the Nineties,' she says, '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 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. 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, I was trying to mentor 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.’
