Angry: Courtney Love

Courtney Love says she’s still so angry about husband Kurt Cobain’s suicide that she’s kill him if he was still alive.

The Hole frontwoman claims the Nirvana icon attempted suicide several times before succeeding in 1994, and overdosed on heroin on a number of occasions.

Asked if she’s still angry over Cobain taking his own life, Love tells Vanity Fair: “You think? If he came back right now I’d have to kill him for what he did to us. I’d fucking him – and then I’d kill him.

“He tried to kill himself three times. He OD’d at least five times. I was the fucking EMS. I was always sticking pins in his balls.” She adds she always carried Narcan with her, a drug for bringing heroin users back from the brink of death through overdosing.

Love is still consumed with the hunt for money she believes Cobain’s estate is owed from Nirvana’s success, and thinks the total could be as much as $250m.

She explains: “We could never find our money. We had $135,000 in our bank account. They said if he would go to Lollapalooza he would make $11m. Do you think Kurt would have killed himself if he had known he had $54m?”

Her artist manager, Jonathan Daniel, regrets the amount of time and effort she puts into researching what she calls “the fraud.”

Daniel says: “What’s heartbreaking to me is that she’s very capable of earning seven figures easy, without any help from Nirvana right now.

“But it’s hard for her to work, or for others to want to work with her, when she’s so consumed with fraud.”
