(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.
