Courtney Love has both affirmed and denied using heroin while pregnant with her daughter Francis Bean Cobain in the past, the contradictions most likely stemming from brain damage due to heroin use. In the new documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, Love hedges her bets:
“I used it once, then stopped. I knew she would be fine.”
Using heroin once most likely doesn’t mean one time but several months of watching the ceiling fan while experiencing the joy of becoming a mother. I heard when you’re expecting you tend to vomit a lot and see the devil in the mirror. Sometimes you even crave marshmallows or more smack. Luckily Love was an expert in the field of pre-natal care and knew beyond a reasonable doubt that a bout of heroin use can’t harm the miracle inside you. It’s basic science. Her daughter seems fine. Fuck it break out the needles and rack some lines at your shower. It ain’t contagious like the measles. Courtney Love says thumbs up.
