Letter found in Kurt Cobain’s wallet was actually written by Courtney Love

on May 01, 2014, 8:11pm

Earlier this week, Seattle police released a letter found in Kurt Cobain’s wallet after his death. Based on the initial excerpt, it appeared to be highly critical of his wife, Courtney Love, leading some to believe their relationship may have been even more fractured than initially thought. However, Grungebook has now shared the full contents of the letter and it tells an entirely different story.

The full letter reads as such:

“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. “Will you promise to fuck her at least once a week, O.K.”

In fact, according to Mark Yam, the author of Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge, the note was actually written by Love.

So, sorry to be the bearer of bad news for all you Kurt Cobain conspiracy theorist, but this appears to be another dead end.

Right because one doosh’s opinion = unassailable fact.

Agree with Andy. This is obviously Kurt Cobain’s handwriting. If she wrote it, she also wrote the suicide note.

Yes. That’s exactly what I’m saying. If this is Courtneys handwriting then she also wrote his suicide note.

It may have been ghost-written by Courtney Love but it def was NOT physically written by Love as that is obviously Kurt Cobains handwriting.

Oh, do shut up, or show us your handwriting analysis degree.

They were in love. I know you wish Kurt were in love with YOU, but he was in love with Courtney. Deal with it.

No need.
Look at the retirement note he left and the last 4 lines, the ‘suicide’ closing, that handwriting analysts say wasn’t the same hand that wrote the letter. Do a comparison.

Nah. A google image search of Courtney’s handwriting reveals a variety of personal letters and such that she has sent through the years. IE http://www.julienslive.com/images/lot/5603/56036_0.jpg – The cursive L’s are exactly like they are in the piece this article is referring to. Don’t assume, Andy.

It IS Courtney’s handwriting Andy. Compare Kurt and Courtney’s:
