Courtney Love wanted to help Peaches Geldof

Picture:

Courtney Love tried to ''help and mentor'' Peaches Geldof.

The Hole rocker - who has battled drug addiction several times - was horrified when the tragic socialite, whose death last month has been linked to heroin use, visited her in Los Angeles at the Chateau Marmont, bringing with her a friend who was carrying a number of prescription drugs.

While Courtney admitted to ''pushing'' Peaches - whose mother Paula Yates died of a heroin overdose in 2000 - out of the room because she was so tempted by the drugs, their encounter made her vow to want to try and help her however she could.

She said: ''My drug was heroin, I stopped taking it in the 90s, but I have taken the pills, the Roxycontin, Oxycontin.

''Peaches was in a room with a friend who had a bag full of these drugs, like 500 pills and I wanted it so badly, never have I ever wanted anything more - no man, no money - and I had to physically push Peaches and her friend out of the door.

''I was shaking and I kept thinking of the way her mother died and I thought I owe it to this girl to be an example.

''I was trying to help her, but at that point in her life, it proved to be impossible. Now the parallels to her mommy are horrific. It terrifies me for my own child.''

Courtney - who has 21-year-old daughter Frances Bean with late husband Kurt Cobain - admitted she wasn't ''shocked'' to learn of Peaches' death.

She added in an interview with Grazia magazine: ''You just can't believe it happened, it's so f***ing tragic. This girl was vivacious, so full of life and it was weird and horrible that she has passed away.

''I read heroin was involved and I was not shocked. I know how Peaches liked opiates.''
