Courtney Love has denied allegations from her daughter that she was responsible for killing family pets.
As previously reported, Francis Bean Cobain filed a restraining order in 2009 which said her cat died after being trapped in a mess of paperwork and trash, and that a dog died after swallowing a pile of pills.
But Love now claims the truth is far stranger. "It was a mountain lion that killed Peabody!" she said on a private Twitter account, @Cbabymichelle. It is not clear which pet was named Peabody.
The restraining order was revealed in a new book by addiction site The Fix, who interviewed Love over the course of a year.
Despite confiding in its author at all hours of the day, she later turned on him. "You are a despicable f--king drunk a--hole - a cynical f--k," she said in response to the original interview. "I will kill you. I promise."
Loves lawyer, James Janowitz, recently told the New York Post that allegations in the book were false, and they may take legal action against The Fix for leaking the confidential restraining order.
"For somebody to meddle in such private and personal matters is pretty reprehensible," Janowitz said. "We can say that all of the statements made about [Love] relating to the court filings, her daughter and other personal matters is false."
The Hole front woman is expected to write her own memoir soon, according to NME. She says it will "set the record straight" about her marriage to Kurt Cobain and her relationships with other celebrities.
