Kurt Cobain’s Ashes Stolen From Courtney Love

According to reports, Kurt Cobain’s ashes have been stolen from Courtney Love’s house in Los Angeles.

Love is apparently suicidal over the theft, stating "I can’t believe anyone would take Kurt’s ashes from me. I find it disgusting and right now I’m suicidal. If I don’t get them back I don’t know what I’ll do."

Love has revealed that she used to carry the ashes with her inside a pink teddy bear shaped bag along with a lock of Kurt’s hair. "I used to take them everywhere with me just so I could feel Kurt was still with me. Now it feels like I have lost him all over again."

Now wait a tick here... ashes in a pink teddy bear bag?! Dumb b****! I am sorry to say, but was she honestly thinking that everyone knew that and to fail to know that someone might mistake it for an actual purse with money and such in it?

Okay, if whoever took the ashes knew that it was Kurt Cobains ashes, they are a retard. Why would you steal somebodies ashes (unless of course your going to be getting a vast sum of money)?
But if whoever stole the ashes didn't know what it was, I'd have to say this is hilarious. Some guy walks by thinking it's a purse, snatches it, only to find out he stole a bag of ashes, how dissapointing.
Poor Kurt, the guy is dead and his life is still f***ed up.

Wow. I've never been so happy to see Kurt Kabang getting roasted. I think that what Nirvana did to hair metal was more important than their musical output. I can't stand seeing Kurt Cobain hailed as a legend of some sort when he always despised the industry, and if anyone's ever read his Journals, you'd see all the shxt he wrote about radio destroying music and how he never wanted to sell out and that was the first thing he did. Plus, their music hasn't really aged all that well. Nevermind has become quite the obsolete record to me, which is crazy since it was constantly in my rotation when I was 14.

Sorry for rambling, but I find Kurt's fame and presence in music history quite baffling, and obviously, I'm really not alone. At least not here.

What is so f***ing lame is he (Kurt Kabang) could have left the music industry and been a decent enough father to atleast be there for his kids. Instead he was dumb and selfish enough to shoot himself! What a git!

This is whacked..Yes, hopefully, she didn't pull a Kieth RIchards and snorted his ashes..GROSS!!!
If truly were stolen, that is a sick thing to do. Like, what is a person gonna do with these ashes anyways? Totally sick....Though, it's strange---is this the ONLY item Ms. Love reported as stolen? How did someone know where to get these "ashes?" in the house..Really Whacked!!

Nirvana was cool, And I like Holes first 2 cds alot...She's nuts, but she is so punk rock and interesting! At 60, Cort will still be cooler that all the other stale B*tches in music (Mariah, Britney, ect.)

Rock Singer Scott Weiland has been arrested for stealing Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain's ashes. Weiland has admitted taking the ashes from his ex-partner's - Courtney Love of Hole - house to drink up in a weird 'eternal life c***tail'. Weiland has commented 'by drinking Kobain's ashes' he was trying to achieve 'some extra talent', 'eternal life' and 'status of a rock legend'.

I think Scott Weiland probably would have snorted the ashes rather than making some eternal life concoction out of them.
