Between her tour with Lana Del Rey, her role on Empire, all the hubbub surrounding Brett Morgen’s Kurt Cobain documentary Montage Of Heck, and countless other stories, Courtney Love has been in the headlines a lot lately. Here’s another one: Page Six reports that NYC psychiatrist Dr. Edward Ratush filed papers with the Manhattan Supreme Court last week claiming Love owes him $48,250 in unpaid bills. Sounds like their sessions together might have been pretty unusual:
The Rutgers University-trained psychiatrist isn’t shy about alternative therapies: He offers trans-cranial magnetic stimulation — magnetic fields that stimulate nerve cells in the brain — and is “interested” in “spiritual interventions” for addicts, according to his LinkedIn profile.
The profile also says Ratush “looks forward to his involvement in research using psychedelic drugs to treat addiction.”
I wonder if Love was undergoing these treatments when she solved the Malaysian Airlines plane mystery?
