Twenty years after Kurt Cobain's death, Seattle police have released a note found in the Nirvana frontman's wallet at the time of his suicide, the contents of which bash then-wife Courtney Love and accuse her of "siphoning" his money.
The letter is believed to have been written by the rocker and was given, along with several other documents, to CBS News following a public information request by the network.
Penned on stationary from the Phoenix Hotel in San Francisco, the note reads:
"Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawfully shredded wife, even when she's a bitch with zits and siphoning all yr money for doping and whoring."
It is unclear whether the play on traditional wedding vows was meant sarcastically or was, in fact, sincere.
The letter certainly contradicts the "official" suicide note found in Kurt's Seattle home in 1994. The then 27-year-old instead referred to his widow as "a goddess of a wife who sweats with ambition and empathy."
He also urged her to "please keep going" and insisted daughter Frances, who was one-in-a-half at the time of her father's death, "will be so much happier without me."
The release of new information comes one month after Seattle police re-examined evidence in the singer's death following the discovery of four previously undeveloped rolls of film taken at the scene.
