The Seattle PD just keeps on releasing all kinds of stuff they found at the scene of Kurt Cobain’s suicide 20 years ago. They’ve released picture after picture after picture and today, at the request of CBS News (via HuffPo), they released a handwritten letter police found in Kurt’s wallet. In the letter that was supposedly written by Kurt, he calls Courtney a “bitch with zits” and a money siphoner. Somewhere, a marketing executive for Proactiv is pitching a “bitch with zits” ad campaign starring Courtney Love.
The note, which is cut off in case you couldn’t tell, reads:
“Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawfully shredded wife. Even when she’s a bitch with zits and siphoning all yr money for doping and whoring.”
Detective Mike Ciesynski of the Seattle PD said that they held onto the note because of all the conspiracy theories (read: the “Cracked Out Courtney Killed Kurt For That Nirvana Money” theories) out there. Billboard points out that this note is totally different than Kurt’s supposed suicide note where he callsCrazy Courtney a “goddess of a wife who sweats ambition and empathy.” The Kurt Cobain Death Truthers will be busy as all hell this week comparing this letter to the suicide letter to see if the handwriting matches. May the mystery-solving skills of Detective La Toya be with them.
Yes, Courtney Love is a bitch. Yes, Courtney Love has a zits. And yes, I’m sure Courtney Love has siphoned money for drugs, but that letter reads like a fucked-up flirty love note to me. Those words were probably their actual vows. The only thing I learned from this letter is that Courtney Love spent money on whores. I thought it was the other way around. I thought Courtney Love was the one who sucked dick for Diet Cokes.
