Courtney Love claims Johnny Deep saved her from an overdose back in 1995

Johnny Deep has looked out for Courtney Love and her daughter for quite some time, she claimed.

Singer Courtney Love recently claimed that Johnny Deep saved her from a drug overdose. In a series of clips shared through her friend Jessica Reed Kraus' Instagram, the 57-year-old musician opened up about her relationship with Depp.

"I don't really wanna make judgments publicly. I just wanna tell you that Johnny gave me CPR in 1995 when I overdosed outside the Viper Room," said the Hole referring to the West Hollywood club that Depp once co-owned.

"Johnny, when I was on crack and [daughter] Frances [Bean Cobain] was having to suffer through that with all these social workers, wrote her a four-page letter that she's never showed me, on her 13th birthday," she continued according to PEOPLE.

Love added that the 58-year-old actor had "sent limos" to Cobain's school "where all the social workers were crawling around — again, unasked — for her and all her friends to go to both Pirates [of the Caribbean movies]." 


"He did it a bunch of times. He gave her her own seat [at the premieres] with her name on it. I've never seen one of those Pirates movies, but [Frances] loved them. You know, she said to me when she was 13, 'Mama, he saved my life.' And she said it again," Love added.

Love said she understands Amber Heard's situation and has "a lot of empathy for what that must feel like for" the 38-year-old Aquaman star as she herself has "been the most-hated woman in America" and "the world" previously.

"But if you use a movement for your own personal gain and you inhabit queer feminist intersectional spaces and you abuse that moment, then I hope justice gets served, whatever it is," she expressed."And I think we should have less schadenfreude and more empathy for all concerned," concluded the singer. 


Deep and Heard have been embroiled in a $50 million defamation after the former sued the latter for a 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post about surviving domestic violence. Depp claimed that the piece ruined his reputation and career opportunities even though he wasn't named in the article. He claimed to have lost "nothing short of everything" as a result. 

Deep and Heard tied to knot in 2015 and ended their marriage in 206 after Heard sought a domestic violence restraining order against him. While Depp denied the claims and settled their divorce out of court in August 2016. But things turned sour after Heard's article was published.
