Remember That Note Kurt Had in His Wallet When He Died? There’s More.

Last week, Seattle Police happened to mention that they found a note in Kurt Cobain’s wallet after he died. It featured some unkind things about Courtney.


Kurt Note 2



When news of the note first surfaced, much was made of the first line: “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 …”

Wow. That sounds nasty.  But now that we can read the rest of the note, the intent obviously  much different: “Will you promise to f— her at least once a week, O.K.”

So what’s this all about?  The current (and probably the correct) theory is that Courtney wrote this note, which was consistent with the kind of sarcastic things she and Kurt sent back and forth to each other.

Settle down, conspiracy theorist. Nothing to see here.

    Sorry Alan,

    I know you have a soft spot for Courtney, but I feel this note rings more of truth than of spoof.

    Even though it’s easy for me to theorize from my armchair having never met her, I don’t like the woman, and never will.

    Well, although I haven’t checked myself, it may be that she did write it. But word is that the writing matches writing on the “suicide note”. Hmmm. The conspiracy isn’t an Elvis is alive type conspiracy. It’s a legit criminal conspiracy. I always accepted Kurt killed himself until recently. Tom Grant has me convinced shes involved in a murder. Can’t wait for film to be re-leased, which includes SPD’s former Police Chief admitting that entire investigation wasn’t handled properly and should be re-opened…properly.
