Kurt Cobain Attempted Suicide Three Times Says Courtney Love

Courtney Love may be trying to stir up some buzz for her forthcoming tell-all memoir, but in a recent interview she claims Kurt Cobain attempted to kill himself a few times before succeeding.

Hole vocalist Courtney Love and Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain shared three years together and gave birth to a daughter before the troubled icon took his own life. It’s not a big jump in reasoning to assume that Love saw an entirely different side of Cobain that few (maybe no) others knew.

It was recently announced that Courtney would be writing a tell-all memoir that would “set the record straight” about Cobain. In her new interview with Vanity Fair, the outspoken singer-actress started the aforementioned “record straightening” a little early.  When asked if she was angry at Kurt for taking his life, Love loudly replied:

“Mad? Ya think?! If he came back right now I’d have to kill him, for what he did to us. I’d f—ing kill him. I’d f— him, and then I’d kill him! He tried to kill himself three times! He OD’d at least five times. I was the fucking E.M.S. I was always sticking pins in his balls. I carried around Narcan! [a drug used to jolt OD-ing heroin users back to life]”

Love also expressed her bafflement of the missing Nirvana funds (Love estimates around $250 million), and remembers that even in Nirvana’s heyday their finances were tough to track:

“We could never find our money! We had $135,000 in our bank account. They said that if he would go do Lollapalooza he would make $11 million… Do you think Kurt would have killed himself if he had known he had $54 million?”

The full interview can be found in the November issue of Vanity Fair which hits stands nationwide October 11th.
