Courtney Love recalls seeing Peaches Geldof and friend with "500 pills"

Courtney Love has opened up on a time when she encountered Peaches Geldof and her friend with hundreds of pills.

The 25-year-old media personality and daughter of Bob Geldof passed away in April, with police confirming that heroin may have played a part in her death.

Speaking to Grazia, Courtney Love - who has battled drug use herself - revealed that she asked Geldof and one of her friends to leave her hotel in 2010 because they were tempting her with drugs.

She said: "My drug was heroin, I stopped taking it in the 90s, but I have taken the pills, the Roxycontin, Oxycontin. Peaches was in a room with a friend who had a bag full of these drugs, like 500 pills and I wanted it so badly, never have I ever wanted anything more - no man, no money - and I had to physically push Peaches and her friend out of the door.

"I was shaking and I kept thinking of the way her mother died and I thought I owe it to this girl to be an example. I was trying to help her, but at that point in her life, it proved to be impossible. Now the parallels to her mommy are horrific. It terrifies me for my own child."

The Hole rocker added that whilst Geldof's passing is "tragic", it wasn't entirely unexpected:

"What happened with me and Peaches that day, when the junkie in me came out and I had to fight for the good side, brings me out in a cold sweat. You just can't believe it happened, it's so f***ing tragic. This girl was vivacious, so full of life and it was weird and horrible that she has passed away. I read heroin was involved and I was not shocked. I know how Peaches liked opiates."
