"She's a b-tch with zits," the letter reads.

The police has recently presented a previously unknown letter discovered in Kurt Cobain's wallet at the time of his death.

The letter severely criticizes Courtney Love and will likely additionally fuel the conspiracy theory that late Nirvana frontman's wife had a role in his death, CBS reports.

"Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawful shredded wife... even when she's a b-tch with zits and siphoning all (your) money for doping and whoring..." the note reads.

As the same source indicates, the given piece of writing is a direct contrast to Kurt's supposed goodbye note calling Courtney "goddess who sweats ambition and empathy."

As previously reported, a new documentary titled "Soaked in Bleach" is taking on the matter of Cobain's death, focusing on the idea of Love playing a major role in it. More info here.

    And i thought my hand writing was bad..

    He should've been a doctor, he has the perfect handwriting for it.
    little_boy
    I wonder if at med schools they secretly have a class where they teach students to write as bad as possible.
    Nethero
    Yes, they have a class for penmanship which all doctors are required to take before they graduate. It's where they learn to write like a doctor.
    Blazingguns00
    Actually... there's truth to this, there are accepted conventions between doctors, so that patients can't read their notes at a glance and find out snippets of information which they would take out of context, the only way for them to read them is to ask for them and read them in full.
    LeperDog
    Maybe that's how he got all his dope. Writing prescriptions on a letterhead in that handwriting could fool any drug store.
    morbidguitar
    Yea... doctor, or a suicidal drug addict. They are highly skilled in handwriting as well.

    Although I have passed comment relating to Courtney's potential blame in his death I don't actually believe that she is directly responsible in manners suggested (hiring hitmen and the like). I more inclined that she had a direct influence over his state of mind, mood and behaviour that would have led him to make the decision. This was sent to me earlier today by someone: [url]http://ow.ly/d/27df[/url]
    Nemesis44UK
    Exactly. I think that Courtney's involvement in his death was limited to influencing his state of happiness prior to him shooting himself. That's it. Talk of hitmen and the like is just whacko nutjob conspiracies.
    AdamLeMoine
    And now we'll have a bunch of nutjobs saying "THIS IS PROOF SHE KILLED HIM OMG." And they'll completely ignore the fact that suicide is a common occurrence for suicidal people.
    morbidguitar
    "...suicide is a common occurrence for suicidal people." You must be highly educated in law and psychology to write something that intelligent.

    "And they'll completely ignore the fact that [b]suicide is a common occurrence for suicidal people. " Stop the presses.

    If your only evidence that it was suicide and not murder is that he was suicidal, and your only evidence that he was suicidal was that it was suicide and not murder, then you have a bit of a problem.
    calezebedee
    The Cobain family had a history of suicide. They may be looking at family history of mental illness to find that evidence.
    TheForthcoming1
    Kurt's two uncles shot themselves. He was also depressed, on drugs and bi polar to boot.
    Wisthler
    That doesn't proof enough anyways. Peter Steele was also a very depresive person, who went through similar things and he didn't blow his brains up
    Smigzy
    No he didn't shoot his brains out... he just committed suicide via overdose. Is there a difference???
    ContraBeast
    Well he didn't commit suicide, and yea there does happen to be a few differences between blowing your brains out and overdosing. Im sure clean up being a big one.
    pinheadslts75
    you know I'm pretty sure there was like, a forensic investigation to determine cause of death
    fromzero
    They cremated the body before the investigation was completed from what I understand. I could be wrong. She was also unusually happy when he died.
    buddy1991
    A friend of mine died and at the funeral his Dad pretended as if it was just a big get together acting very happy and social and giving out different food recipes to everyone.. It is not unusual for someone to act very strange when a family member or loved one dies tragically.
    Velcro Man
    See, you only need to prove a crime, you don't have to PROVE innocence, that's not how the law works. Innocent until proven guilty.
    theclassicrock
    I'm not saying that Courtney is guilty. All I'm saying is that there is plenty of evidence that is simply dismissed as a conspiracy theory.
    AdamLeMoine
    Not all suicidal people commit suicide, but all people that commit suicide are suicidal. And the fact that Kurt attempted suicide multiple times before and often spoke openly about taking his own life would be some pretty good evidence that he was suicidal. He killed himself. It's not that hard of a concept to grasp.
    DetoxBunny
    "suicide is a common occurrence for suicidal people" - It's actually not. There are loads of criteria for categorising someone as "suicidal", yet the majority of people reporting these tendencies either indulge in self harm periods or fail in committing the act itself.
    tric565
    "suicide is a common occurrence for suicidal people." Which is why they are such easy prey for manipulative sociopaths, Im not saying it wasnt suicide but there is just as much chance cortney was behind his death but because he was on medication and had a heroin addiction it was pretty much open and shut to those investigating his death.
    kramer242
    Here's the thing....suicide is not common among suicidal ppl. Depression runs rampant in my family, and the only suicide came from someone who was married into the family. Just an example of the insanity that is my family....my aunt was found naked in a cemetery, with a knife, before promptly being hauled off to a psych ward. As for conspiracy theorists, I won't say one way or another whether I think murder or suicide. The truth is everyone has a right to their opinion. The way the case was investigated, despite alot of interesting coincidences and evidence, leaves alot of open ends to the open shut suicide case. I personally would be no more surprised if it was murder or suicide. I do agree on one thing.....as much as proper investigation would be, to get facts and stop this debate, its time to let it go. The guy had problems and suicide or murder, let him rip.

    Suicide is a common occurrence for suicidal people... Really? Learn something new everyday.
    AdamLeMoine
    Wow, people. I was mocking the morons that say there is no possible way Kurt committed suicide despite the fact that he was openly suicidal.
    JewishMilkman
    The note sounds more like an in-joke between the two more than anything else. Having said that, I would get a kind of morbid satisfaction if it turns out that they do find evidence that she was the killer.
    MsAnneThrope
    Just another miracle? … Like the one where he was too ****ing doped to be able to shoot himself, or hold a shotgun that had no prints on it? … I wonder if this letter is all in the same handwriting, or edited as the other…
    chamiller005
    This strikes me as consistent with the sense of humor my wife and I share. She can sometimes be utterly unreasonable in arguments or moods, and this is something I could see her writing in a note, would that she was a note writing type, as a cutesy/funny way of apologizing or making light of a bad argument. That said, I have no idea what it really means.
    Northernmight
    Easy peasy. Compare his hand-writing on both notes to something definitely written by him - if this newly found note matcches and the other one does not, then that's pretty damn good proof that the initial suicide-note was a forgery - which would definitely support the murder-theory. Y'know. The kind of stuff police is supposed to do.
    victor420
    Im a fan of Nirvana as much as the next guy but how come people cant accept the fact he killed himself?
    MetalRock4ever
    Maybe because if it was murder, he could have carried on making more music. Potentially, there wouldn't have been another waste of talent. Some fans may have wanted that to be a reality, then they can blame someone. When it's suicide, who can you blame entirely? Many people may not want to blame Cobain for killing himself. I don't know, that's my view on it, but whenever there's a suicide, it's usually a waste of life.
    AdamLeMoine
    Okay, lets say he was murdered then. If he wasn't murdered, he would have killed himself or overdosed.
    jimmydvn
    this is actually courtney's handwriting, apparently, and was just a joke between the two of them, which he caried in his wallet for years. chill out.
    seance
    I don't know where you got that information, but it does seem to be the most believable, based on her personality and their relationship. I don't think Kurt would talk this way to Courtney, or any woman for that matter.
    jpfer69
    She obviously got those zits from all the cum that her face was constantly being soaked with
    Everlong729
    Actually, that's promotes wrinkle free skin and fewer breakouts of pimples..
    LeperDog
    Why is this shit turning up so late?? I thought the police in my country was terrible.
    macphisto0
    sadly he's still dead and he is the only one who can tell if she kill him or not, no matter how many conspiracy notes or theories surface trough the years, nothing can change the fact that he is gone.
    JohnSeminario
    The fact that Courtney Love just released a single called Wedding Day is a bit too appropriate for this to be a coincidence...
    1019
    No one knows. He probably committed suicide. But we will never know. Courtney's private investigator stated that the suicide was fishy.
    sirn1kolai
    Has most of the people who believe that Courtney killed Kurt forgot the fact that Kurt try to O.D. on sleeping pills in Rome at the tail end of 93? That's why he ended up in a rehab/psych hospital in 94, and got out before his release resulting in the session that produced "You Know You're Right" and a few days after that was found dead. Did any of that last run on sentence have anything to do with my point? No, but here it is: he already tried to kill himself. Suicidal people will try to commit suicide again and again until they are successful. This letter, proves, absolutely, NOTHING! And I'm not knocking that somebody else probably was at the scene shortly after Cobain died, but either somebody found the body with the brains all over the place and shot him up with heroine. Or somebody found the body, he was O.D.ing on heroine, and they blew his brains out. Either way, the man was dead by his own hand. Conspiracy theorists, you're just that, conspiring against Courtney Love so you can have closure over the fact Cobain did kill himself.
    mfergel
    Anyone who's read the Kurt Cobain Journals knows he wrote shit like this all the time.
    BwareDWare94
    Battling with depression is one long ass elevator ride. On topic: Things I don't care about anymore--this.
    ewolf5150
    you ever had that friend who you were like best buds with but then he would date some broad that was absolutely crazy and you couldn't understand why he was doing it. she had him whipped like a dog, acted irrational, wouldn't let him out of her sight, and checked on him every 15 minutes. I Hate nirvana and kobain as much as the next guy who hates overrated shitty bands and musicians, but the fact that kobain EVER had a relationship with whacked out bat shit crazy courtney love shows how blind and stupid he really was. Its so easy to see from the outside and kobain probably never listened to his bandmates and friends when they told him to book it. Kobain SHOULD have killed himself just for being a complete dumbass by dating courtney love and not seeing his own stupidity when everyone else told him so!
    LeperDog
    Before you hate him and his band, please learn how to spell his name.
    TheForthcoming1
    Kurt was depressed, bi polar and his two uncles had also shot themselves to death.
    buddy1991
    I understand that mental health disorders run in famillies but that doesn't count as evidence of suicide.. That being said, of course he killed himself.
    FUglySchtick
    I thoroughly believe Courtney probably helped push Kurt to offing himself; but from someone with a fairly extensive knowledge of ballistics and blood spatter, no one but Kurt squeezed that trigger. The guy had serious issues; most seriously creative people air on the side of less than a full deck. Also; if the note was written in ink (which it appears to be), had Kurt written it there'd be smudging present and there didn't appear to be. Aside;the actual structure of the writing isn't consistent with a south paw (I should know, I've dated for different left hashed women). I'm not attempting to exonerate Courtney in any way shape or form; according to both Dave and Kris, the general consensus is that she was a psychologically and emotionally abusive and manipulative. Do I believe that foul play is evident in the death of Kurt? Abso-fokin-lootly, just not in a conventional sense. Courtney (for anyone who's played any attention to her career at all), is extremely insecure and highly uncomfortable when over-shadowed.
    BradTheBluefish
    Both Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love were emotional train wrecks that were destined to be together due to their love for music, drugs (sadly), and being different. I am very certain they were at each others throats throughout their love life. Kurt Cobain, who struggled with love, fame, friendships, and drugs, finally had enough. He had his ups and downs, but one day he was so down that he did the unthinkable and finally took his life. Very, very sad.
    the_bi99man
    Your recitation of various biographical notes was so powerful. It's almost as if you knew them.
    bustapr
    real evidence that this was in his wallet at time of death or Ill just believe it to be bullshit. what is all this about a note found in his wallet appearing out of nowhere decades after his death? not to mention that "yr" is something every hipster kid writes in their texts these present days and not 20 years ago. I swear sometimes I think, "im gonna write this this note claiming bob marley wrote it saying he really didnt like weed", send it to UG, and they will believe it to be true...
    jontejonasson
    So all the conspiracy theorist doesn't believe in the note found by his body, and now they find a note which exactly suits their thoughts about the death of him. Seems legit. And by the way,it feels quite unlikely that Kurt would say that his own wife was whoring in my opinion.
    Everlong729
    You do realize they didnt have the best relationship right? There were constant fights and shit, I'm sure he wouldn't hesitate to call her a bitch
    jontejonasson
    All i mean is that people are very selective in what they choose to believe in, and im growing really tired off all of these Courtney killed Kurt documentaries. I think most of their theories lack some serious substance. It all just seems very dull to me.
    tonello
    You realize that the "suicide" note never stated he was gonna kill himself. In fact, it was more of an intention to leave the music business and Courtney than a suicide note.
    badfish_lewis
    Well to be fair, it's not like he was marrying a saint. Kinda shoulda thought that decision through a little better
    Brands99
    okay, so i know it was in his wallet when he died, but surely they must compare when this note and his suicide letter were written. If they were written in close periods of time, then you'd wonder why Kurts' view of Courtney changed....
    metallicafan85
    Anyone else think its weird that the note has the "do you take courtney" part and the same day this is posted she releases a song called "wedding day" this note seems fishy to just appear after all this time.
    willj1234
    on the other hand, hes been dead for twenty years, and now anyone who wants to have bitch is either a moron or has issues with this post-death persona Cobain has been given as this almighty god like figure and take it too seriously.
    reignofrock
    This definitely doesn't say she had a hand in it. But hey, could have been part of his motivation at the time.
