(Newser) – Courtney Love has always been a fan of TMI, so is it any surprise that she spent nearly a year talking to The Fix for a new e-book called Courtney Comes Clean? The site has a preview of the book (which you can buy in full for just $2.99), featuring Love's definition of sobriety ("When you’re used to heroin and cocaine, a few pills doesn’t seem like the end of the world.") and weird details about her relationship with her daughter Frances Bean Cobain ("We slept in the same bed till she was 14."), among other things.

But by far the most interesting details come from never-before-published parts of Cobain's deposition, from back when she got a restraining order against her mother. Cobain discusses accompanying Love to her ex-boyfriend's home while Love threw rocks at his house; reveals that Love spent a lot of time slamming doors and breaking things while yelling about fraud; and basically accuses her mother of killing two pets. A dog allegedly died after eating some of Love's pills, and a cat died in a situation almost too bizarre to be believed: caught in a pile of Etsy fabric, paperwork, trash, and other belongings.
