Kurt Cobain's Ashes Stolen

Rabid fans and murder theorists probably liberated them.
According to the News Of The World, the Nirvana frontman's remains – the location of which has previously been kept secret – were taken from the Los Angeles home of his widow Courtney Love.

The ashes were said to have been kept in a "pink teddy bear-shaped bag along with a lock of his hair" and were taken with some jewellery and clothes.

Love is quoted by the paper as saying: "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."

Some of the Nirvana frontman's ashes were previously scattered near his home in Washington State and some at a New York Buddhist temple, with his widow retaining the rest.

She added: "They were all I had left of my husband. 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."
I like "Celebrity Skin" as much as the next guy but Courtney's been somewhat unhinged for the last decade, and while I don't buy the murder conspiracies surrounding Cobain's death, she may not be the best parent for her child right now. Money can get you a lot of leeway with the courts. Hubby's ashes are probably in a dumpster somewhere, and Courtney remains an example of the dangerous side effects of fame with a dash of heroin.

Shit. I just came directly from the imdb messageboard page for Johnny Cash, and the last topic title I noticed was "makes me wonder whether Kurt Cobain was my generations Johnny Cash".

Then I came straight over here and look what your latest post is about =| weeeird.

Keeping ashes in a "pink teddy bear-shaped bag"? WTF.
