Courtney Love is on a mission help Pete Doherty come off drugs. She should probably be concentrating on herself, but that I guess is beside the point. Well, things have been going well for her for the last couple of months, so I suppose she can share the wealth.
The Hole singer fears the troubled rocker could end up like her former husband Kurt Cobain, whose heroin addiction is said to have contributed to his suicide in 1994.
The blonde – who has also battled drug problems – decided to help the Babyshambles frontman after chatting with his former Libertines bandmate Carl Barat at a concert in London.
A source told Britain’s Daily Star newspaper: “Courtney is finally in a position to help others who suffered like her. She sees herself in him and doesn’t want him to end up like Kurt.
“She knows that in most cases an addict will only take advice from someone who has been through the same drug hell.”
The offer comes just days after ex-Black Sabbath star Ozzy Osbourne said he and his wife Sharon are prepared to help the singer beat his addiction.
The former hellraiser, who has beaten drug addiction, said: “I’ve been to the pits of hell with addiction and although it’s f***ing me off to see him f***ing up his life, I’d help him in a minute if he asked.”
