Courtney Love hopes Jeffrey Epstein ‘burns in hell’ and can't explain why she's in his 'black book' as she never met him
ROCK chick Courtney Love says she hopes Jeffrey Epstein "burns in hell" after her name was found in his infamous address book.
The disgraced financier’s so-called "little black book" emerged after it was found by the FBI and subsequently leaked.
The Epstein case has come under the spotlight once again following the arrest of his alleged pimp Ghislaine Maxwell.
It is alleged that socialite Maxwell helped him build up his contacts.
Hundreds of names in the book also appear, including billionaire Richard Branson, former F1 boss Flavio Briatore, former PM Tony Blair, and rockstar Mick Jagger.
There is absolutely no suggestion anyone listed had any connection to his crimes, including Courtney who has described being listed as "creepy as f***".
To set the record straight about her inclusion in the little black book, Courtney took to Twitter.
The 56-year-old singer said: "Hey. About my name in Epstein’s address book, it’s creepy as f***.
"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."
In July last year, Epstein was arrested on federal charges for sex trafficking of minors in Florida and New York.
He was found hanged at a Manhattan jail in August while awaiting trial on alleged sexual assault and trafficking charges of underage girls.
Along with Epstein, Maxwell is alleged to have been at the centre of a sex trafficking ring which lured in girls for abuse.
Prince Andrew is known to have for a time been friends with both of them, and is accused of sleeping with a 17-year-old sex slave at Maxwell's house in London.
The Duke of York strongly denies any allegations against him and said he had no knowledge of any wrongdoing while friends with Maxwell and Epstein.
In his interview with Emily Maitlis, the duke disputed a notorious photo of himself with his arm around the then teen and seemed bemused by his public image, saying: "I never have really partied."
About my name in Epstein’s address book, it’s creepy as f***… I didn’t know him, never met him
In September, the Sun Online reported that Courtney has alleged Andrew once tried to seduce her — amid claims that they were introduced through Epstein.
The royal allegedly turned up at the star’s house at 1am "looking for sex", shortly after being introduced to the disgraced financier.
While nothing happened Courtney — widow of Nirvana rocker Kurt Cobain — has told friends Andrew was "very flirtatious".
She told a pal: "I was in bed when the doorbell rang at 1am, so put on my fluffy slippers and a dressing gown, and the Queen’s second son was standing there with a protection officer, totally unannounced.
"He said he had got my address from a mutual friend and was looking to have a fun night in Hollywood, and apparently I could show him a good time.
"We sat down on the sofa, by the fire, and that is when he got quite flirtatious.
"In the end he only stayed for around 45 minutes.
"Of all the things that have happened in my life, this truly is one of the most surreal things — and that is saying something."
A photograph taken on the night in question was published in her memoirs, Dirty Blonde: The Diaries of Courtney Love.
In a 2006 TV interview to promote her book, Courtney — who previously claimed to have met Andrew at Hay-On-Wye, when she was in the Welsh border town — said the royal came “looking for chicks”.
At the time, the prince’s spokesman admitted the father of two had visited the one-time addict’s house but insisted he was not alone.
He added that it was “absolute nonsense” to suggest he went there looking for girls and he claimed the episode referred to by Courtney happened in 2000 — a year after Andrew claims to have first formally met Epstein.
A friend of Courtney’s told the Sun: "Courtney had no direct dealings with Jeffrey Epstein and had no idea the prince was going around. She never met Jeffrey."
The Duke of York has been named in US court papers by Virginia Giuffre, 35, who originally accused Epstein of keeping her as a “sex slave”.
She claims she was forced on three occasions to have sex with Prince Andrew when she was just 17 years old.
The Prince has vigorously denied all the allegations made against him.
Courtney rose to fame as the lead vocalist in alternative rock band, Hole in the late 1980s.
She enjoyed a turbulent romance with Kurt, and got pregnant within weeks of dating him. They married in 1992 after four months together.
