If the question is, who is the most publicly fucked up celebrity?
Courtney Love sentenced to rehab:
- Courtney Love was sentenced Tuesday to 18 months in drug rehab, closing one chapter in a troubled saga that began when she was accused of trying to break into her ex-boyfriend’s home while high on cocaine.
“Casey Jones, you’d better/watch your speed/trouble ahead, trouble behind”
Superior Court Judge Patricia M. Schnegg gave the rocker until Oct. 29 to enroll in a drug counseling program, which will require frequent drug testing. She will be permitted to travel, but will be barred from taking non-prescription drugs, drinking alcohol or being in places that serve alcohol.
“I have to stop drinking. That’s funny,” Love said outside court, firing up a cigarette. “I think I can do it.”
….”Thank you,” she told the judge when it was over.
Love was arrested in October after she allegedly tried to break into the home of former manager and boyfriend Jim Barber. Authorities said cocaine and other opiates were found in her system.
Cocaine isn’t an opiate.
- A series of charges followed: possessing illegal painkillers, assault, reckless endangerment, attacking someone with a liquor bottle. Then there were escapades like strange courtroom statements, allowing herself to be photographed with her nipple in a stranger’s mouth and flashing her breasts on David Letterman’s TV show.
Assistant City Attorney Jerry Baik said Tuesday’s sentence was negotiated under a plea agreement with Love’s attorneys. She pleaded guilty May 25 to a misdemeanor count of being under the influence of a controlled substance and agreed to enter a treatment program.
….Love still faces a felony case in Beverly Hills Superior Court for allegedly possessing illegal painkillers. She could face up to three years and eight months in prison if convicted of possessing hydrocodone and oxycodone.
Last month, Love was arraigned in New York City on charges of assault and reckless endangerment for allegedly striking a fan with a microphone stand at an East Village club in March. She was scolded by the judge for showing up more than five hours late.
The most recent case involves an April 25 incident in which she allegedly attacked a 32-year-old woman with a liquor bottle at Barber’s Los Angeles home. A bench warrant for her arrest was issued earlier this month after she failed to appear for an arraignment. [AP]
Strictly enforced rehab is the best thing for her and for society. Clean that bitch up.
By the way, I think “Mono” rocks – not digging those new lips, though.
