Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's ashes stolen

Singer's remains taken from Courtney Love's home


Kurt Cobain's ashes have apparently been stolen.

According to the News Of The World, the Nirvana frontman's remains the location of which has previously been kept secret were taken from the Los Angeles home of his widow Courtney Love.

The ashes were said to have been kept in a "pink teddy bear-shaped bag along with a lock of his hair" and were taken with some jewellery and clothes.

Love is quoted by the paper as saying: "I can't believe anyone would take Kurt's ashes from me. I find it disgusting and right now I'm suicidal. If I don't get them back I don't know what I'll do."

Some of the Nirvana frontman's ashes were previously scattered near his home in Washington State and some at a New York Buddhist temple, with his widow retaining the rest.

She added: "They were all I had left of my husband. I used to take them everywhere with me just so I could feel Kurt was still with me. Now it feels like I have lost him all over again."

I thought they were scattered near/in the Wishkah like a week after he died? Or am I imagining reading that...

Well, that's creepy. Who'd want them? What can you do with them? Sell them? How could you prove they're his?

This is really weird because I was watching the Nirvana: Unplugged DVD last night. The lilies and black candles gave me the creeps.

Don't worry, shes just confusing Kurts ashes with another stash o' heroin. I'm sure his ashes are still there.



Seriously though, what a doorknob she is.

this is fucked up.

But really, CL should be allowed to keep his ashes in whatever recepticle she sees fits.

Or maybe she could have some nice glasswear made from them.

Lol, that's funny.

I was also thinking of a Courtney Love/Drug related joke. Like maybe she confused it with her coke stash and snorted it, hahah.

I don't really know if this story is true or not. But... it seems... really odd... and honestly, I'm not that interested.... cause there's nothin for me to do about it.

As repugnant as Courtney Love is, it's still pretty disgusting to take ashes from a widow.
