Courtney Love Plans to Sell Cobain’s Belongings
Courtney Love, widow of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, says she is planning to sell off many of her late husband’s belongings. “I’m going to have a Christie’s auction,” Love, 42, told spinner.com. “(My house) is like a mausoleum.”
Love and Cobain were married in 1992 and had a daughter, Frances Bean, that same year—two years before Cobain committed suicide with a shotgun.
“My daughter doesn’t need to inherit a giant Hefty bag full of flannel fucking shirts,” said Love. “A sweater, a guitar and the lyrics to ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’—that’s what my daughter gets. And the rest of it we’ll just fucking sell.”
Love says her friends support the idea of the auction, which is not yet scheduled. “Everyone’s been positive and behind me on it. We’ll make a lot of money and give a bunch to charity.”
And it will help the widow Love move on from Cobain, as well.
“I still wear his pajamas to bed,” she said. “How am I ever going to go form another relationship in my lifetime wearing Kurt’s pajamas?”
