Mary J Blige is urging troubled Courtney Love to look to her daughter FRANCES BEAN for help in her current drug and assault issues.

The R+B star feels sorry for the former Hole rocker, insisting she hasn't realised how much responsibility she has yet.

Blige says, "She doesn't have the self-knowledge yet. It takes a certain amount of knowledge to know what you're doing, not only to yourself, but the other people in your life.

"She has a baby's life in her hands; she doesn't know the corruption she's causing her.

"Once she knows she's responsible for so much, she'll get better."

Love, the widow of Nirvana's Kurt Cobain, faces felony drug charges and disorderly conduct in Los Angeles and assault in New York.
