A note found in Kurt Cobain’s wallet after his death, tells of his ‘lawful shredded wife’
Earlier this year police released new photos, taken at the site of Kurt Cobain’s suicide, 20 years after the incident. The Seattle Police stated that the photos weren’t released to highlight any new information found in the case, only that the pictures were recently discovered.
Now a handwritten note, assumably written by Kurt Cobain himself, has been released by police. The note was found in Cobain’s wallet the day of his suicide, and speaks harshly about his then-wife Courtney Love. First reported by CBS News, the note was taken into evidence on April 8, 1994 just hours after Cobain shot himself.
Although logged into evidence, the note itself was never made public. It wasn’t until CBS obtained the note from Seattle Police, through a public information request, that the note was ever brought to light. Written on stationery from the San Francisco Phoenix Hotel, the note does not seems like a simple keepsake one would normally carry for his or her new-wife, though in all fairness Cobain wasn’t exactly known for being a ‘traditionalist’. The note contains harsh words about Love, “even when she’s a b**ch with zits and siphoning all (your) money for doping and whoring…,” is just one lines from the note.
At just 27 Cobain shot himself at his Seattle home, his band Nirvana is considered by many to be one of the true founders of early Grunge rock.
