Kurt Cobain's Angsty Note About Courtney Love Reportedly Written By Love Herself

You’d think that twenty years on, the surprises and shocking twists around Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s relationships would be all but over. Not so, however. Last week, CBS reported on a note, found in Cobain’s pocket after his death, which seemed to reference his relationship with Love. The note apperared to be written by Cobain about his turbulent relationship with Love, but now, a biographer of the Nirvana frontman has said that the note was, in fact, written by Love herself.

Apparently the note found in Cobain's pocket was not written by him.

The note, initially said to be written by Cobain reads: "'Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawful shredded wife. Even when she’s a bitch with zits and siphoning all your money for doping and whoring.'"

The note was discovered in Cobain’s wallet back in 1994, but was only recently released. It was initially thought to have been written by Cobain himself, but Charles R Cross, author of the 2001 Cobain biography Heavier Than Heaven, claims differently. According to Cross, via The Guardian, it wasn’t Cobain who wrote the note, but Love. She apparently emailed him to say as much after the note was released. Love reportedly gave the note to Cobain before their 1991 wedding. According to Cross, the couple often wrote each other tongue-in-cheek notes and this one is in Love's handwriting.

Love and Cobain frequently wrote one another tongue-in-cheek messages.

Cobain was found dead in April of 1994, having shot himself with a shotgun in his home on Lake Washington Boulevard. He was found by an electrician who had come to do some work on the house. The police investigation determined that Cobain had committed suicide three days before, on April 5.
