Kurt Cobain buys house

According to Courtney Love... [Hello everybody! This post begins with the words 'according to Courtney Love', which is on a par with 'If Nostaradamus is to be believed' and 'Unless Russell Grant's powers of prediction are failing him'. But go with us, eh?] ... someone has been ripping off the estate of Kurt Cobain to the tune of thirty six million quid.

Apparently she's known about it for years, but was, you know, not in a position to do anything about it for a while:

“I knew it had been going on since when I went cuckoo — bananas — in 2003.

“It was fraud after fraud. But nobody believed me until now. I did a check on my deceased husband’s social security number and he has a house in New Brunswick, New Jersey. He bought it last year.

“I would like to know how. He should probably get his ass back home if that is the case.”

We're a little lost as to why, if she knew all about it, and was busily making time to throw bottles at people's houses, she didn't go out of her way to do anything about it in a hands-on way.

The idea that people who had nothing to do with Kurt's talents creaming off income from the Nirvana back catalogue is a bit sickening, isn't it? Using his name and likeness to generate an income is almost unforgivable. You can see why Courtney would be really annoyed at other people doing that.

Aside from his widow and child, you mean.
