In a statement made to Radar Online
, Courtney Love
's estranged father has stated that he believes his daughter was somehow involved in the death of Kurt Cobain
. "No doubt she was capable," Hank Harrison
says. "I can't prove she pulled the trigger, but I can prove her involvement to a high degree of certainty."
Harrison, who is an author and medieval historian, is reportedly planning to elaborate upon his theory in a new book, titled "Love Kills: The Assassination of Kurt Cobain
The claims from Harrison come after the release of a handwritten note, found in Kurt Cobain's wallet when his body was discovered, that alleges a state of marital disharmony between Love and Cobain:"Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawful shredded wife, even when she's a b--ch with zits and siphoning all (your) money for doping and whoring…"
Speaking of the note, Harrison states:"If you read the true meaning of this small note, and place it in conjunction with the rest of the evidence, anyone with even half a wit will see that something dire and awful took place."
However, the writer's claims are undermined by the recent revelation from Cobain biographer Charles R. Cross
that the note was penned by Courtney herself. As Cross notes, the letter, which was in Love's handwriting, was most likely written during Nirvana's stay at the Phoenix Hotel in San Francisco in 1991. The pair reportedly passed such notes to each other on a regular basis, and the content was intended as tongue-in-cheek.
