Courtney Love's Ex-Assistant

Shopping Tell-All Book --

She's a Delusional Drug Addict

3/10/2012 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Courtney Love
One of Courtney Love's ex-assistant's is shopping a new book -- claiming to offer up the singer's deepest darkest secrets ... involving her derailed love life, and rampant denial of serious drug problems.

The book -- tentatively entitled "Get Me a Xanax" -- is being shopped around to major literary agents in New York by a woman named Jessica Labrie, who worked for Love from 2010-2011.

According to the proposal -- obtained by TMZ -- "This is an unprecedented glimpse into the daily life of the chaotic widow of Kurt Cobain, by an innocuous girl who had the extraordinary chance to witness it all."

Labrie makes many allegations in her proposal -- including how Love torpedoed several romantic  relationships with her obsessive behavior, and still abuses cocaine and prescription drugs like Adderall and Xanax ... despite telling people she's been "clean and sober" for years.

So far, no word on whether the book's been picked up.

Courtney tells TMZ, she hasn't taken Adderall since November 2010 -- and is adamant she never took cocaine when Labrie worked for her, adding, "I hate cocaine."

Courtney admitted she does take Xanax -- but she has a prescription.

Courtney love has proven in court that she is a loser and a liar.

Many still think she had something to do with Kurt Cobains death and she's bad news.

I'd be more likely to read the tell-all that said Courtney Love was an outstanding citizen who rescued pink unicorns in her free time. Drugs, an effed up personal life, and delusional thoughts are nothing new or interesting about Courtney Love.

Let me get this correct. This woman had to work with Courtney to realize something was wrong. Now she is running around exploiting her. She sounds like a real gem

I nearly fell out of my chair when I read that Courtney Love does drugs. I can't believe it. I expected this from a lot of people, but NOT Courtney Love. She seemed so....sane and sober. Like all the other rock & roll singers out there.

I've actually talked to her several times a few years ago. She was always really nice and funny.

There is nothing she can write that the public doesn't already know ...she should get a job instead of trying to make money with other people life

My God, other than the artificially enhanced fish lips, you can actually see her face lift scars and where her jowls are starting to sag AGAIN.

A lot of the posts agree this is old news that has been reported about Courtney Love forever. But that predictability makes her an easy target. This author briefly got a job with Love and immediately after, starts selling a "tell all" book about her. Under the cir***stances, you have to question whether any of it is true, or was just made up by a greedy opportunist.

And I always thought Courtney might have a bipolar disorder. Self-medicating with Xanax and other things could be part of the problem. Her stretches of craziness seem worse and last longer than I would expect from drugs alone; and then she comes back again. She seems to cycle in and out of it forever. She has always denied being bipolar. Does she protest too much?

Lots of artists are bipolar. They get treated and their lives get easier.

Did Courtney Love make a pact to kill her self with Kurt Cobain?

So after Kurt shot himself, Courtney chicked out like she knew she would before they made their suicide pact.
