Hole frontwoman Courtney Love has taken to social media to say she hopes disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein “burns in hell” after her name and number was found in Epstein’s address book, saying she didn’t know him.
“About my name in Epstein’s address book, it’s creepy as fuck that I’m in that thing I agree,” Love wrote on Twitter. “I didn’t know him, never met him, didn’t know who he was. Apparently he collected celebrity phone numbers. The end.”

Love went on to say she hopes Epstein burns in Avīci Hell – the lowest level of hell in Buddhist thought, where the most suffering occurs.
Epstein was arrested mid-late year on an array of sexual assault and underage sex trafficking charges, allegedly working with a large network to cover up his actions. He was linked to a wide assortment of celebrities and other high-profile figures, regularly throwing lavish parties. In August 2019, he died in his Manhattan jail cell while awaiting trial, with the death officially ruled a suicide.
The address book Love is referring to surfaced in 2015 court proceedings after Epstein’s former house manager Alfredo Rodriguez attempted to sell it in 2009. As The Independent reports, other names which appeared in the book included Donald Trump, Alec Baldwin, Ralph Fiennes and Mick Jagger.
