Courtney Love, who is the widow of Kurt Cobain and singer of The Hole, celebrated the 52nd birthday of Marilyn Manson by sharing a new post on her official Instagram account and shared an unknown story from their long-going friendship.
As she shared pictures of herself with Marilyn Manson, Courtney Love also explained how Manson saved her life during the time when she was trying to quit drugs and alcohol about two years ago.
According to Courtney, Marilyn is the one who helped her to get rid of this addiction. Apparently, Manson was in control of Love’s phone, email, bank accounts, and many more.
Following these tight rules of Marilyn, Courtney Love managed to quit drugs and started a new page of her life. Considering all his contributions to her life over the course of many years, Love showed her respect for Marilyn Manson on his birthday and thanked her prince for his help.
Here is what Courtney Love wrote in the caption of her post:
“Happy birthday my prince Marilyn Manson. It has been a pleasure growing up with you and our supermodel careers. (🍆🌜😁)
In LA at the end of my using 2 and a half years ago, trying to plan my escape from that crazy asshole (see my description of 2020, previous post) who was controlling all my phone, email, any contact with the outside world, was ‘moving’ 100s of 1000s of dollars a month through rosses his roommate’s bank accounts (Ross entirely complicit, is what the forensic accountants told us, along with my accountant, Karen…).
And telling me I had no money at all to eat, pay rent, nothing. I had no credit, no Uber, no method of transport, I’d have taken the bus in la, I just didn’t even have any, cash, I lived under a reign of suicidal terror. And was at the end of my rope. It was Manson who rescued me. Manson who stuck his neck out and sent a car for me every night. Planned my escape.”
“Manson (and my daughter, my sister Jaimee King and Lana Del Rey who helped me get to a place to detox off the staggering, 15 bars a day, Xanax habit that monster had me on, also without Paul Norton getting me a burner phone and loaning me 500 dollars he couldn’t really afford, I couldn’t have done it. Thank you paul, sorry for forgetting. That burner phone was my only way of getting out too).”
I’ll never forget that. It was brave, and it was kind. And hanging out with you every night was my only human connection for months. You made me start to feel human again. Thank you, my brother. I’ll always have your kind, gentle-hearted, true artists back.
I’m sorry that one tour didn’t work out, (the kids think we’re stuck on some 90s moment with that tour, and aren’t aware of the incredible, inclusiveness you have shown me over the years) I love you.”
