Courtney Love's Father Threatens To Sue Over LSD Allegations
According to Britain's Sunday Times , Courtney Love's father, a former rock manager called Hank Harrison, is preparing to sue her and Faber & Faber, publisher of Love's upcoming book (entitled "Dirty Blonde") based on her "intimate" journals, if she alleges that he put her on the road to drug addiction by giving her LSD as a toddler.
"Courtney is a brilliant artist with a photographic memory and a mass of talent, but she can also be a mean bitch, although I put a lot of that down to her mother," Harrison said.
"I have been told she was given a $1 million advance for her book, and for that it will have to be pretty detailed. I know she has told other people that I gave her drugs when she was three years old, which she cannot possibly remember and is absolutely untrue as I was an anti-drugs counsellor in the 1960s. But I do fear what she might write now to make the book sell.”
"Dirty Blonde", due to be published in November, is based on Love's journals of life with late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, as a rock star with her own band Hole and her acting career, which peaked with her role in the 1996 film "The People vs Larry Flint".
