Courtney Love Treated in Dorset
TROUBLED rock star Courtney Love is thought to be battling her addictions in Dorset.
The 46-year-old Hole singer, who was married to Nirvana’s tragic front man Kurt Cobain, has battled drug and alcohol problems for years. According to a national newspaper, Love sent a Facebook message to the son of hard-living Rolling Stone Keith Richards, Marlon, for help.
She said she urgently wanted an “addictions” doctor to visit her at a house “where I’m staying in Dorset, twice, three times a week”. Love added: “It’s an emergency, I only have the house for a week.
“Hurry Marlon, I need to pack for UK now. I have a PA and minder, need nurses and doctor.” The rocker has spoken of cocaine and heroin abuse in the past.
Marlon, a clean-living 41-year-old father-of-three, said he would see what he could do with the help of Keith Richards’ former wife and recovered addict, Anita Pallenberg.
The news comes in the wake of former footballer Paul Gascoigne checking back into the Providence Projects in Boscombe in a bid to overcome his long-term alcohol problems.
The England legend is facing Christmas in jail on drink-driving charges. Yesterday the Boscombe treatment centre said it could not confirm nor deny whether Love was being helped there.
Earlier this week Providence Projects director Paul Spanjar appealed to the media to respect the privacy of Gascoigne and other patients being treated there, as photographers had been “camped outside” daily.
