Actress Courtney Love, in a new documentary on her Nirvana singer husband Kurt Cobain, says she considered cheating on him once and that thought might have triggered his 1994 suicide attempt.
Love made revelations in “Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck”, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and opens in theatres this Friday, reported the New York Post.
“I’m a big flirt — I flirt with chairs. I never, never cheated on him, but I certainly thought about it one time in London,” Love said in the film.
She also said that Cobain sensed the possibility of her straying, and it may have triggered his March 1994 suicide attempt.
“Montage of Heck”, said to be filled with compelling interviews and unprecedented access about the artiste’s life, has been authorised by O’Connor, as well as Love, and his daughter, Frances Bean Cobain.
It examines his troubled youth, growing up in the logging town of Aberdeen, Washington, in a way that artfully melds Cobain’s journals, voice recordings and drawings.
Also dissected is the rise of Nirvana from underground curiosity to household name in the space of a few months — and the heartbreak, public scrutiny, health problems and drug addiction that ultimately led to Cobain’s death, at the age of 27, by self-inflicted gunshot.
