It reads: “Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawful shredded wife,” he wrote. “even when she’s a bitch with zits and siphoning all yr money for doping and whoring…”

UPDATE: Seattle Police are refuting the KIRO report, and in an effort to correct the record and quash rumors, are getting the message out that the KIRO news story is inaccurate. celebuzz.com disappoints conspiracy buffs with this headline: Despite What You’ve Heard, No the Seattle Police Department Has Not Reopened the Investigation into Kurt Cobain’s Death. SPD’s Twitter feed has the following:

Here’s the original KIRO report that started the controversy:

KIRO 7’s Casey McNerthney and Amy Clancy report: Nearly 20 years after Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain was found dead in his home near Lake Washington, Seattle police have reexamined the case.

Last month, police developed four rolls of film that had been sitting for years in a Seattle police evidence vault. The 35 mm film was processed by the King County Sheriff’s Office photo lab under high security.

“Kurt went up there for one purpose, which was to commit suicide. And I beleive he did not want to be found and be revived, so he wanted to make a sure way to kill himself…”

Though the pictures have a slight green tint because of deterioration, police say they more clearly show the scene than the earlier Polaroid photos taken by investigators. Police said the case was a suicide in 1994.

“…there were always these conspiracy theorists out there and so I was asked to look at the case and review it.”

— Detective Mike Ciesynski

Tonight only on KIRO 7 Eyewitness News Eleven at 11, we speak with the detective who re-investigated the case about the new details in the investigation.

“Kurt went up there for one purpose, which was to committ suicide,” Ciesynski said. “And I beleive he did not want to be found and be revived, so he wanted to make a sure way to kill himself.” Read the rest of this entry »

courtney_love_p_2013

On Friday, a California jury decided that Courtney Love shouldn’t be held liable for a tweet directed at her former attorney Rhonda Holmes.

UnknownThe case is believed to be the first trial in a U.S. courtroom involving allegations of defamation on Twitter. Holmes was hired by Love to handle a fraud case against those managing the estate of Kurt Cobain, but in 2009, the relationship between the colorful rock star and her ex-attorney went south, and Love composed a tweet that read in part, “I was f***ing devestated [sic] when Rhonda J. Holmes esq. of san diego was bought off.”

Holmes sued, claiming the tweet had hurt her reputation.
