Note in Cobain’s wallet mocks wedding vows to Love
May 01, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SEATTLE — A handwritten note police discovered in Kurt Cobain’s wallet after his suicide disparages Courtney Love, the late Nirvana front man’s wife.

CBS News reported that the note was taken from Cobain’s wallet when police arrived at his home on April 8, 1994, after Cobain fatally shot himself. The note was never made public. CBS obtained it from the Seattle Police via a public information request.

The network reports that the undated note, apparently written by Cobain on stationery from San Francisco’s Phoenix Hotel, is written like a mock wedding vow. It references Love as Cobain’s “lawful shredded wife” who would be “siphoning” his money for drugs.

Cobain’s body was discovered in Seattle on April 8, 1994. An investigation determined that days earlier Cobain had gone into the greenhouse of his home and taken a massive dose of heroin. He then shot himself with a 20-gauge shotgun.

Earlier this year, in advance of the 20th anniversary of Cobain’s suicide, a Seattle detective reviewed the case files, including evidence photos and statements. He found no new information to change the police conclusion that Cobain took his own life.

Cobain, who was 27 when he died, sold millions of albums with Nirvana and helped popularize the Pacific Northwest’s heavy, muddy “grunge” rock.
