Love was born Courtney Michelle Harrison on July 9, 1964, in San Francisco, California, to psychotherapist Linda Carroll (née Risi) and Hank Harrison, publisher and brief manager of the Grateful Dead.
Love’s mother is the daughter of novelist Paula Fox and an unidentified father, who is rumoured to be Marlon Brando. Carroll and Harrison divorced in 1969 and her father’s custody withdrawn after her mother alleged that he had fed LSD to Love as a toddler. In 1970, her mother moved the family to the rural community of Marcola, Oregon, where they lived on a commune.
