“I was 2 days out of a crap money pit rehab in Orange County,” Love recalled. “[Smith] started the evening by offering me cotton candy, she was pretty much the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen, and I have seen so many.

“We ended up in some rich dude’s high roller suite downing shots and etc. I think there’s footage that’s been disposed of by the E! Channel… Man, she was incredibly beautiful like a mist, she trailed me all night. We had fun. I’m very grateful to have met her.”

“A savage slip stream, tsunami of chaos hit [Smith],” Love continued. “A senseless waste. She wasn’t resilient enough to rise above in the moment the water washed over her head, the wave hit her wrong, it’s just a matter of luck, angles, seconds, she didn’t have the right skills or men (or women) strong enough to pull her up, how sad and fucked.
