An author who is considered to be an expert on singer Kurt Cobain and who has written several books on him says that Courtney Love was the one to write the note that was found on Kobain and she herself reportedly corroborates that.
As previously reported, the note was discovered in the Nirvana singer's wallet and wasn't shared with the public until this year.
The letter mocked their wedding vows saying, "Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawful shredded wife..." The note also says, "even when she's a b**ch with zits and siphoning all (your) money for doping and wh**ing."
Now author Charles R. Cross took to the Seattle Times to write a post saying that Love was the true author behind the letter and she admitted it in an email to the Times. Love said that she wrote it back in 1991, three years before Cobain committed suicide.
Cross wrote that these type of notes were something the couple liked to write each other. Two other sources back up the assertion she was the true author, with one being Love's sister Nicole Jon Carroll.
Speaking with the Associated Press, Cross said, "Early in their relationship, they wrote notes like that to each other constantly. The handwriting is absolutely Courtney's."
