Courtney Love claims Brad Pitt stalked her over Kurt Cobain biopic backlash

Courtney Love has claimed that Brad Pitt had her fired from 90s classic Fight Club.

The singer, who is well known for her marriage to Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain, has said that Pitt was unhappy with the Hole songstress after she rejected him to play her former husband in a biopic.

Love has previously spoken about the incident on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast and opened up about her thoughts on the matter.

She claimed that Brad had her replaced after she received a call from the film’s director David Fincher and explained: “He fired me because I won’t let Brad play Kurt.”

Love has now released a new statement addressing the situation and called out the Hollywood actor for “pushing her too far”.

She took to Instagram to share a message which read: “Brad pushed me a bridge too far. I don’t like the way he does business or wields his power. It’s a simple fact, and it started during the production of Fight Club.”

Courtney confirmed that she “wasn’t here b****ing about listing a part playing someone’s side piece in a movie 22 years later” and savagely quipped that she had “passed on better roles than that”.

Love said that the “point” was that “Brad kept on stalking her about Kurt” and said that she felt it was time to open up about the issue as she is currently in recovery.

The Hole singer also said that holding in “resentment is like drinking poison and hoping the other person dies”.

Courtney admitted that she thought “Brad would not stop pursuing Kurt unless she said it publicly”.

Love then closed by saying: “I don’t want Brad to be p***ed off at me and become his resentment. I want him to do better. I’m not into assault. C’mon, brother Pitt. I wish you well, truly.”

The Hole singer then quipped that if Pitt is “mad at her, then that is his problem,” and softened the blow by saying that she “enjoys him as a movie star immensely, just not so much as a biopic producer.”

She also confirmed that she has no hard feelings towards her alleged replacement for the role of Marla Singer, Helena Bonham-Carter.
