Courtney Love Says Marilyn Manson Saved Her Life

It’s not every day you hear someone call Marilyn Manson a “prince,” but Courtney Love has done just that.

Love celebrated the 52nd birthday of Manson in an Instagram post while also revealing that he had saved her life.

Calling Manson her “prince,” Love says the shock rocker was helpful in helping her kick addiction by handling her funds, phone, and gave her some strict rules.

Love wrote, “I’ll never forget that. It was brave, and it was kind. And hanging out with you every night was my only human connection for months. You made me start to feel human again. Thank you, my brother.”

How has a friend helped you get out of a bad situation? How crazy is it that Marilyn Manson is 52?
