Kurt Cobain Attempted Suicide Three Times Says Courtney Love
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.
