Kurt Cobain Biographer Confirms Courtney Love Wrote Note in Wallet

Kurt Cobain Letter
Grungebook Tumblr

As reported, a note found in Kurt Cobain‘s wallet at the Nirvana frontman’s death scene surfaced last week, and there was question as to who wrote the letter. Now, it’s been confirmed that Courtney Love did in fact pen the sarcastic missive.

Charles R. Cross, the Seattle-based author who penned several books on Kurt Cobain, has stated that Courtney Love emailed him to let him know that she wrote the note and that she gave it to Cobain before their wedding in 1991.

The text of the note read: “Do you, Kurt Cobain, take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawful shredded wife even when she’s a b-tch with zits and syphoning all your money for doping and whoring. Will you promise to f— her at least once a week, o.k.”

A partial photo of the note released by Seattle police initially made it seem as though Cobain was sarcastically ripping on Love, but once the full note surfaced, it appeared as though Love had penned the message.

According to The Guardian, Cross stated that the couple often wrote each other sarcastic notes, such as the one found in Cobain’s wallet at the time of his death, and he confirmed that the handwriting is indeed Courtney Love’s.
