Courtney Love tells 'Vanity Fair': If Kurt were alive 'I'd kill him'

Another day, another moment of Courtney Love cray cray.

Asked in the most recent issue of Vanity Fair about whether she’s still mad at Kurt Cobain for committing suicide, Love replies, “Mad? Ya think?! If he came back right now I’d have to kill him, for what he did to us. I’d f—ing kill him. I’d f— him, and then I’d kill him.”

“He tried to kill himself three times!” Love insists, adding that he overdosed at least five times, forcing her to carry around Narcan, a drug that’s used to bring overdosing heroin users back to life. “I was the f—ng E.M.S.” she says. “I was always sticking pins in his balls.”

And that’s not all. Love’s thoughts on why her relationship with her daughter Frances is fraught? “I never read to her! … Why didn’t I ever take her to a Broadway show? She f—ing loved those Broadway musicals!”

On her and Kurt’s struggles with money: “We had $135,000 in our bank account. They said that if he would go do Lollapalooza he would make $11 million… Do you think Kurt would have killed himself if he had known he had $54 million?”

On her detractors? “They won’t be happy until I’m dead.”

Well, at least there’s more fodder for that “definitive” memoir.
