Courtney Love is a renowned American songwriter, singer, visual artist and actress. She is the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the American alternative rock band, Hole, which was established in Los Angeles, California by Courtney and Eric Erlandson.

Love has been featured in many films and television shows, including “Sid and Nancy(1986), The People vs Larry Flynt(1996), and Sons of Anarchy(2013-2014)”.

Courtney has had two ex-husbands, James Moreland who was the vocalist of the band, “Leaving Trains”. They got married in Las Vegas on the 23rd of July, 1989 and had their marriage annulled the same year. It was later found out that the marriage between her and James was a farce, a joke. 

According to Courtney, the relationship was never supposed to last as they were both busy with their jobs and personal lives. They were not having good communication among themselves hence they had arguments between themselves.

It must be noted that Courtney was once pregnant with James’ child but due to her heavy use of drugs, the pregnancy was aborted. Hole’s first single, “Retard Girl” was produced by James Moreland before they divorced after a three month marriage. James was a writer and had published for publications including LA Weekly.
