Turns out that the late Nirvana leader didn’t pen those nasty words about his wife, Courtney Love, after all. Apparently she wrote them herself. In a new interview with the Guardian, she admits that it was her doing.

And as many suspected, the letter wasn’t meant to be taken seriously. “Obviously I wrote it,” she said. “Don’t you guys understand sarcasm?”
