Courtney Love

Has Courtney Love Had Cosmetic Surgery?

Courtney Love has is most famous for being the husband of Nirvana’s lead singer, Kurt Cobain.

Love was born on July 9, 1964. She grew up in a commune under the name of Michelle Courtney Harrison.

She became an exotic dancer at age 16 and started her own band called Hole shortly before meeting Kurt Cobain.

The marriage might have been a match made in heaven, but it was cut short in 1994. Cobain committed suicide. When her husband passed away, she went through many different plastic surgeries.

Courtney Love’s plastic surgery forays may have been a symptom of depression or loneliness. They continued for years, but the woman stopped them after she became 45 years old.

How A Meeting With ‘Cat Woman’ Changed Everything

A chance encounter caused Love to question the need to go under the knife consistently.

Love decided that she no longer needed to go under the knife after she encountered Jocelyn Wildenstein, who was later to become known as ‘Cat Woman’ in the tabloid media.  Without question ‘Cat Woman‘ represents one of the most horrific and awful plastic surgery stories of all time.

Wildenstein had and has since spent thousands of dollars on various plastic surgeries over the years which created an unnatural appearance to make her look more like a cat.

The details of how Wildenstein affected Love are not known. What is known is that Love had a number of surgeries before meeting the celebrity.

Courtney Love: Plastic Surgeries She Had Done

The former wife of Kurt Cobain has had three nose jobs, a lip augmentation, breast implants and liposuction. If she had not met the ‘Cat Woman’, she may have continued to undergo the knife.

Love’s plastic surgeries may have resulted from grief over the loss of her husband. Losing a loved one can make people do strange things.

It may have taken a shock for Courtney Love to swear off plastic surgery forever. She will probably make the details known in her autobiography, if she should ever choose to write one.

There are people who choose to consult a surgeon to feel better about themselves. There is also a condition known as body dysmorphic syndrome, but Love showed no signs of suffering from this personality disorder.

Love’s background may have suggested that she would have become a heavy drug user, but there is no evidence to support this.

Although she is known for her marriage to Kurt Cobain, she has a few bit parts to her credit. She also pioneered a fashion style known as Kinderwhore. Her band Hole remained intact through 1999. Love started a solo career at the turn of the twenty-first century. Her band Hole was in disarray, but she founded the Courtney Love band.

The singer has sworn off plastic surgery, but she continues her musical career. She may have a few bit parts in movies here or there, but is unlikely to have a starring role in a feature film.

Looking at Jocelyn Wildenstein today, however, Courtney Love will never rue the day she met her.  Otherwise the Courtney Love plastic surgery story could have had a much less happy ending.
