Jessica Labrie, Courtney Love’s ex-assistant, ready to reveal the singer’ secrets in a tell-all book
Jessica Labrie, Courtney Love’s former assistant, is said to be trying to sell a new bombshell book that could rip the lid off of the troubled singer’s life.
The tell-all proposal, tentatively titled “Get Me a Xanax”, is being shopped around to major literary agents in New York by Jessica Labrie, who worked for Courtney Love from 2010-2011.
TMZ obtained a copy of the proposal, which describes the story as “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”.
Jessica Labrie makes many allegations in her proposal, including the disturbing claim that Courtney Love “still abuses cocaine and prescription drugs like Adderall and Xanax” even though the singer tells people she’s been clean for years.
So far, it is unclear if there’s much interest or if the book will get picked up.
Courtney Love, 47, immediately dismissed some of its claims telling TMZ, she hasn’t taken Adderall since November 2010 and adds: “I hate cocaine.”
The singer admitted she does take Xanax, but says she has a prescription.
Courtney Love frequently makes headlines for her outrageous antics, including her troubled relationship with her only child, daughter Frances Bean Cobain.
In January, Courtney Love was snapped stumbling out of a Golden Globes party in West Hollywood, California.
A month earlier, reports surfaced that she was being kicked out of her $27,000-a-month rented apartment in New York after wrecking the decor and causing a fire inside the home.
Courtney Love had been issued an eviction notice after the owner accused her of wrecking the historical $8 million home.
Donna Lyon, who owns the property, said Courtney Love caused more than $100,000 worth of damage since moving in and also owes $55,000 in unpaid rent.
Courtney Love fired back, explaining that she was told that she could make alterations to the decor.
“I moved into this home only on the condition that I could paint it and when I leave, I’d restore it to exactly what it was,” Courtney Love wrote in a post on xoJane.com.
“Since I darkened the door she [the owner] has been vicious to me and my staff.
“Having a landlady tell you your Prelle, $2,000-a-yard fabric…is <<destructive>> is totally weird.”
