Courtney Love became one of the most polarizing and controversial rock icons of the 90s. Apparently she was a little monster growing up, too.
We know that because we learned it from, guess who? You can read the full story in her moms book, Her Mother's Daughter: A Memoir of the Mother I Never Knew and of My Daughter, Courtney Love, which was released to positive reviews last year. Carroll presented the book for pre-approval to everyone who was mentioned, except for Love; Carroll told The Times last year that her daughter had "not been accessible to have that kind of conversation for a long time."
