(Newser) – Kurt Cobain might have had good reason for writing a nasty note about Courtney Love around the time of his death, at least if Love's dad is to be believed. Hank Harrison—who, it should be noted, is estranged from Love—tells Radar, "No doubt she was capable. I can’t prove she pulled the trigger, but I can prove her involvement to a high degree of certainty." Of course, to find out exactly what proof he has, you'll have to buy his forthcoming book, Love Kills: The Assassination of Kurt Cobain.

But he will say that the aforementioned note, found in Cobain's wallet when he died, plays into his theory: "If you read the true meaning of this small note," which accused Love of being a "b----" who "siphon[ed]" away all Cobain's money, "and place it in conjunction with the rest of the evidence, anyone with even half a wit will see that something dire and awful took place," Harrison says. Click for more from Harrison, who claims his daughter "always said she was going to kill herself a rock star."

Wouldn't surprise me if she killed him,or had a hand in it.Strippers usually have shady values,but then so do many folks nowadays.

Courtney Love has always been a total genius at finding new ways to stay in the spotlight by saying something crazy. I guess it was an inherited skill.

Courtney Love saw Kurt in his weak-minded state and "talked him into" killing himself. It was the perfect crime, and nobody can tie her to that. She was jealous of his fame and talent, and of how she was a very phony imitation. She wanted her own group and the money. She basically confessed it all in her first major song "Doll parts" after Kurt's death. She even had a lookalike of him in the video for the song. Note: As soon as he died, she ran out and got plastic surgery so to begin her new music career. (Remember how she looked before it?)
