Courtney Love has revealed her heroin addiction began during a wild party at Charlie Sheen’s house.
The Hole rocker spent years battling substance abuse, struggling with both cocaine and heroin at the height of her troubles.

She has now revealed she first tried heroin as a teenager and all she remembers is “waking up on a plane to San Francisco wearing a fur coat and a Chinese wedding dress, with $10,000 in my pocket.”

But Love didn’t begin using the drug regularly until many years later, when a friend encouraged her to “shoot up” during a party at Sheen’s former home in Malibu, California.

She tells TheFix.com, “One night, my boyfriend at the time, who was working for Ben Stiller, took me to this star-studded party at Charlie Sheen’s house in Malibu. Tom Cruise was there, and Madonna, and my friend Jennifer Finch, who used to be the lead singer of L7. At some point Jennifer – who has been very clean for 16 years now – convinced me to shoot up… So that’s when my whole heroin drama began.”
