Courtney Love Is Not Gonna Be Happy About New Cobain Book

FUSE TV - Courtney Love Is Not Gonna Be Happy About New Cobain Book

Courtney Love is not going to be happy when she reads Letters to Kurt, the new book about Kurt Cobain written by her former Hole bandmate Eric Erlandson. Why? Because the guitarist slept with/dated Courtney and wrote about it, even though she explicitly told him not to. Juicy.

Love, who recently "reunited" Hole without Erlandson (who fought their use of the band name), told the New York Daily News, "I wish [Eric] well. Even more than Dave [Grohl] and [Krist] Novoselic, Eric was family… I just hope he didn't write that we dated. We had sex, yes, but I don't date."

Fuse scored an advance copy of Letters to Kurt and it seems that someone isn't telling the truth about the relationship.

Erlandson wastes no time airing his dirty Love laundry—it's literally the first thing he writes in the book. In the opening sentence of the introduction, Erlandson calls Love "my girlfriend." He then describes the night he first met Kurt Cobain and how Cobain pranked called them "around three or four a.m. that same night ... as Courtney and I were just about to fall asleep in our small basement room under a house in the hills near Universal Studios." 

"Kurt was drunk and had been goaded by an English journalist friend to call Courtney," Erlandson explains. "We had kept our relationship secret. Courtney did not want our band to lose its sex appeal. She believed that couple bands were too unavailable. The fact was, for more than a year, we had shared a deep and powerful, if codependent, bond. But after that night, cracks began to appear."

Wow. It's Love vs. Erlandson all over again. Whose side of the story do you believe? Tell us in the comments below.
