Courtney Love's Dad Still Insisting His Daughter Was Involved in Kurt Cobain's Death

"No doubt she was capable," Hank Harrison says.

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.

    Way too many Kurt/Courtney articles in the past month or so.
    Yeah, obsessing over the circumstances surrounding poor Kurt's death and a possible involvement of Courtney Love isn't how I saw people commemorating the 20th anniversary of his death. Not enough people are actually talking about how great Nirvana were.
    Thing is, the only reason youre hearing about Courtney is this is an opportune time for her to exploit her dead husband on the 20th anniversary of his death to promote her own crappy music.
    Wow... that's just sad. Even her own father blames her for that? He's even going so far as to release a book on it? Harsh dude. F*cking harsh.
    This is the first time I've ever felt any degree of sympathy for Courtney Love. Having a father like that moronic scumbag?
    He may actually believe that she had something to do with it...but I'm sure a lot of people would say something like this for money. (Not defending either side)
    I think she bullied him mentally and emotionally and that help drive him to kill himself
    I guess desparation for publicity runs deep in the Love family. I see where Courtney gets it.
    Well if you read Charles R. Cross biography about Cobain, She didn't do it. It points more in a way that Cobain was so self-destructable that it had to happen sooner or later. Even though Charles R. Cross claimed it was penned by her, it doesen't mean it has anything to do with the suicide/murder. I'm not a supporter of any of the theories tho.
    You people are dumb, Courtney had everything to do with Cobains murder its right in front of your face plain as day just look, bottom line to it all is the amount of heroin found in his system would have made it impossible for him to shoot himself he would have passed out instantly dead of an overdose so someone pulled the trigger not him its medical facts people dont be stupid here HE WAS MURDERED. And no Courtney did not shoot him she paid someone too.
    Oyyyy, this is how twisted Courtney Love is to most people. Even her dad thinks she was involved Cobain's death. That is insane and sad at the same time.
    Sleeping in
    Is it only me that thinks the fact that she wrote is more incriminating than Kurt writing it? I find it hard to believe they made habits of passing such notes to each other.
