Courtney Love is moving to the U.K., femalefirst.co.uk reports. The former Hole singer is growing tired of life in Los Angeles and is planning to buy a house in Britain for her and daughter Frances Bean, 16.
Courtney said: “Buckinghamshire is where I want to go. I read Country Life magazine every week. I’m fed up with Los Angeles. It’s full of crazy people. People criticize Britain but it’s still a cleaner, safer place to live than Hollywood.”
However, Courtney — who is also looking at properties in London’s Primrose Hill district, close to the home of close friends Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow — will only make the move if her arch-rival Madonna remains in her native America, where she has been since splitting from director Guy Ritchie.
She added to Britain’s Daily Star newspaper: “Madonna had better stay the hell away from London when I move here to live. There’s no room for us both.”
Although Courtney and Gwyneth are now close friends, the Iron Man actress admits she was left “devastated” by their first meeting 10 years ago.
