    Courtney Love is attempting to defuse the new drama surrounding herself and Brad Pitt: In a lengthy statement posted to Instagram on Friday, the actress and singer addressed the statements she made on Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast had made. There she claimed that she was originally slated to play the female lead in the movie Fight Club. But after turning down Brad Pitt’s separate film pitch to do a biopic about her late husband Kurt Cobain, she was fired from the lead role.

    Love on the path of reappraisal

    In her new statement, Love writes that the story she shared on the podcast was originally one that she “actually never wanted to tell.” But she said she was on the path to reappraisal and recovery, and that’s when she let it slip, because: “I had a feeling Pitt wouldn’t stop pursuing me for the film about Kurt if I didn’t say so publicly.” And: “I don’t like the way he does business or wields his power. That’s a simple fact, and it started during the production of Fight Club.”

    Also, 22 years later, she’s not here to complain about losing the role. In the new statement, she affirms that Helena Bonham Carter is the right person to be cast for the role.

    “Come on, Brother Pitt, I wish you the best!”

    She continued to write verbatim: “I don’t want Brad to be mad at me and it becomes his grudge. I want him to be better. I don’t like injuries. Come on, Brother Pitt. I really wish you all the best. If he’s mad at me, that’s his problem. I enjoy him immensely as a movie star. Not so much as a biopic producer. Hope that explains some things.”
