Courtney Love may appear unaffected by the abuse and charges leveled at her over the years, but the Hole frontwoman appears to be plagued by her connection with Kurt Cobain. The ‘haunting,’ on the other hand, isn’t always awful. In 2019, Love was speaking with Interview Magazine and answering questions from her famous pals when actor Joshua Boone inquired if she’d ever seen a ghost. Courtney stated, “When I moved to Hancock Park from Seattle with Frances and Edward [Norton, Love’s ex-boyfriend], I saw Kurt in a chair for a moment and he said hi to me, and then he left.” Then she answered another question, this time from Gwyneth Paltrow, about how grief had shaped her life. Hole’s lead singer responded: “In Buddhism, there are four stages: hell, hunger, animality, and anger.” All anyone wants is a proper service, burial, and so on. However, it is really difficult to deal with emotionally. You have to be brutal when dealing with [Kurt’s] estate. “I have a child.” Love then went on to explain her problems with Cobain’s estate and how she was dealing with her ‘grief’ during all of this: “There are still, like, 12 lawyers in Washington, 12 in California, and six in New York.
” It’s completely insane. History is a collection of facts that can be extremely skewed, and the right side of history requires careful stewardship. That is extremely difficult. There is astonishment. There is upheaval. There is wailing. There is surrender. There is commemoration. There are significant emotional swings. There’s phony smiling.” She went on to say how difficult it was for her to deal with her grief at times: “The game isn’t finished yet, but one thing to remember about grieving is that no one should tell you that it should be over: ‘It’s been 15 years, it should be over now.’ ‘You should be over it by now, it’s been 25 years.’ You’ll get over it when you get over it, which will most likely never be.” Although Courtney was accused of several conspiracies surrounding her husband’s death, you can read here why, without any conspiracy, Cobain’s mental condition and, weirdly, his favorite book anticipated his terrible and untimely suicide.
