Courtney Love: $27 Million in Nirvana Money Is Gone

By    |   Monday, 11 August 2014 05:14 PM

Singer Courtney Love has lost about $27 million of her late husband’s Nirvana money, much of it going toward lawsuits over the years, she told Britain’s Sunday Times.

Love, 50, was married to Kurt Cobain, Nirvana’s lead singer who killed himself in 1994.

She told the Times that she doesn’t worry about the money she lost.

“I know that's a lifetime of money to most people, but I'm a big girl, it's rock 'n roll, it's Nirvana money, I had to let it go,” she said. “I make enough to live on, I'm financially solvent, I focus on what I make now."

In an unusual twist, Love also shared that cocaine and crack helped her financially.

“I had to run very fast to look after my money and I felt cocaine helped me do that. So I started taking cocaine and that turned into nine months of crack," Love told the Times.

Love, a singer-songwriter in the alternative rock band Hole, is known for her dramatic life, including numerous lawsuits, addictions, and money problems. She and Cobain had one daughter, Frances Bean, who's now 21.

In advance of a Hole tour that starts Wednesday, the Sydney Morning Herald picked out 11 of the most “Courtney Love” things Love said during her Times interview. On the list was the fact that she prefers an espresso martini to coffee because it’s “a very good mood stabilizer because it contains vodka and coffee.”

Also during the interview, Love said she wrote the suicide note found with Cobain and that it was in her handwriting; she is protecting Nirvana songs from uses such as KFC commercials and even turned down $6 million for 18 seconds of one song; and that prescription drugs caused some lawsuits. “It’s [Adderall] a very potent speed drug — it makes me crazy, it makes me write long, unintelligible emails and get on Twitter and say something nasty and then I get sued,” Love told the Sunday Times.
