'Peaches Geldof Brought Hillbilly Heroin To My Hotel Room' Says Courtney Love

Courtney Love has revealed she was aware of Peaches Geldof’s drug addiction and tried to help her, though it "proved to be impossible".

Love, a former heroin addict herself, says she was visited by Geldof in 2010 while she was staying at the Chateau Marmont Hotel.

Geldof turned up with a friend and a bag full of prescription drugs – including opiate-based Oxycontin, also known as “hillbilly heroin.”

The 25-year-old was found dead at her home in Kent last month, with an inquest later finding she had the class-A drug heroin in her system when she passed away.

Love exclusively told Grazia magazine: “…When I read heroin was involved I was not shocked. I know how Peaches liked opiates.

“My drug was heroin, I stopped taking it in the Nineties, but I have taken the pills, the Roxycontin, Oxycontin.

“Peaches was unfortunately in my room with a friend who had a bag full of these drugs… like 500 pills and I wanted it so badly, never have I wanted anything more, no man, no money, and I had to physically push Peaches and her friend out the door.

“I was shaking and 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, I was trying to mentor her, but that point in her life, it proved to be impossible.

“Now the parallels to her Mommy are horrific.”

Geldof’s mother Paula Yates died of a heroin overdose in 2000 when she was just 11-years-old.

It has been confirmed police have launched an investigation to find out who supplied the mother-of-two with the class A drugs.
