Courtney Love is responding to the note recently released from her husband Kurt Cobain’s death scene, which mocked their marriage vows. The note had been found in his wallet and stored away in a file for 20 years until now.
Seattle author Charles R. Cross, who is considered an expert on Cobain after writing many books on him, said he received an email from Love explaining that she had given him that note ahead of their 1991 wedding as a joke.
The note, released via CBS News, reads, “Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawful shredded wife..." later adding, "even when she's a b**ch with zits and siphoning all (your) money for doping and wh--ing..."
“Early in their relationship, they wrote notes like that to each other constantly. The handwriting is absolutely Courtney's,” Cross explained in a blog post.
Cross also wrote that the couple “typically traded such notes, laced with sarcasm and course references to sexuality and drug use.”
Love’s sister, Nicole Jon Carroll, who had been employed by the Cobain estate, has also confirmed it was Love’s handwriting on the note.
Cobain took his own life in 1994.
