Courtney Love has arranged lawyers to represent her late husband Kurt Cobain, to protect her from being taken advantage of should Cobain’s personal items be auctioned.
Love, who was married to Cobain until he killed himself in 1994, has spoken to Cobain’s mother about selling his childhood belongings – and fears her former mother-in-law will sell off priceless keepsakes if she doesn’t get the right representation.
On her website, Love writes, “I love his mother but she has been taken advantage of in my opinion and from now on, after our discussion today, she will be repped by proper lawyers.
“(When) people approach her for his childhood things she can maximise her income in these transactions.”
Love yesterday announced she is auctioning off Cobain’s keepsakes – which have been valued at $40 million because she’s sick of living in “a mausoleum”.
She adds, “Most will go to charity since the money isn’t what I’m that interested in.”
