Film about Cobain opens despite Love’s warnings

SHARE Film about Cobain opens despite Love’s warnings

A documentary that suggests Kurt Cobain's death wasn't a suicide opened in San Francisco, despite a warning from lawyers for his widow, Courtney Love.

"Kurt and Courtney," by British filmmaker Nick Broomfield, opened Friday at the Roxie Cinema. The theater has received a letter from Love's lawyer warning that it would share any liability with the filmmaker and those who raise questions about Love's role in Cobain's death."We are told that Mr. Broomfield's movie conveys the message that Ms. Love killed her husband Kurt Cobain or somehow participated in his murder. Such accusations are false and defamatory, nothing more," the letter from attorney Michael Chodos said.

Cobain, lead singer of the band Nirvana, was found dead in his Seattle home in 1994 of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
