Courtney Love is described as mentally unstable in newly released deposition papers filed by her daughter Frances Bean Cobain, who sought a restraining order in 2009.
Frances Bean, now 19, says Love’s behavior even caused her pets' death.
Their cat kicked it after getting entangled in Love’s messy piles of "Etsy fabrics, boxes of paperwork, trash and other possessions,” according to the court papers, while the dog swallowed several of Love’s stash of prescription pills.
In order to ensure that no other pets fell victim to Love’s pill-popping habits, Cobain included her dog, Uncle Fester, on the restraining order which was granted.
Among those Love was ordered to avoid contact with include Cobain, Uncle Fester, Cobains’ grandmother and her aunt. The primary reason? Love's drug use.
“(She) has taken drugs for as long as I can remember,” Cobain said.
“She basically exists now on ... Xanax, Adderall, Sonata and Abilify, sugar and cigarettes. She rarely eats ... She often falls asleep in bed while smoking."
"I am constantly worried that she will start a fire (which she has done at least three times to date) that will threaten all of our lives.”
