Courtney Love took to Twitter to deny that she knew the late Jeffrey Epstein, despite her name coming up on a list of contacts in his address book.
The news that Love’s name was found in Epstein’s book initially came out in 2012, but the story was rekindled with the recent airing of the docu-series Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich on Netflix. Love tweeted,
“Hey. About my name in Epstein’s address book, it’s creepy as [eff] that I’m in that thing I agree. I didn’t know him, never met him, didn’t know who he was. Apparently he collected celebrity phone numbers. The end. Hope he burns in Avīci hell.”
Avici hell is a Buddhist term for “the lowest level of the ‘hell’ realm, with the most suffering, into which the dead who have committed grave misdeeds may be reborn,” according to Wikipedia.
In a 2006 TV interview, Love told about a “surreal” visit she received from Britain’s Prince Andrew, who has since been accused of being an Epstein client. She claimed he had come to a home she was staying at in Wales “looking for chicks.” A photo of the two also appears in her 2006 memoir, Dirty Blonde: The Diaries of Courtney Love
