Courtney Love has continued to keep Kurt Cobain’s memory alive as she shared a sweet unseen photo of him with his daughter Frances before his devastating death
Courtney Love has shared an unseen photo of the late great Kurt Cobian.
The Nirvana frontman passed away in April 1994 and nearly 30 years after his passing, his widow Courtney and their daughter Frances Bean Cobain have done all they can to keep his memory alive.
And over the weekend, Courtney shared a photo of late husband, as he laid next to their daughter Frances when she was a baby.
In the sweet photo, Kurt can be seen watching Frances as she lies next to him in the bed.
“Sometimes the male gaze is everything,” she wrote alongside the snap.
Courtney has said before that she will never get over her husband’s death, and previously admitted that grief from his passing has completely changed her life.
She previously said: “There are these stages in Buddhism: hell, hunger, animality, anger.
“All anyone wants is a proper service, proper burial, all that stuff. But it’s really hard to deal with emotionally.
“With [Kurt’s] estate, you have to be ruthless. I have a kid. There are still, like, 12 lawyers in Washington, 12 lawyers in California, and, like, six lawyers in New York. It’s insane.
“History is set of facts that gets incredibly distorted, and the right side of history needs proper stewardship. It’s really hard to do that. T
“here’s shock. There’s turmoil. There’s lament. There’s relinquishing. There’s remembrance.
“There are huge swings of emotion. There’s fake smiling. There’s ugly crying. I really felt like there were a couple of times where I’d get over it, and then it would come back a few years later.”
She admitted people have told her that her grief should be “over” because he passed away over two decades ago, but she doesn’t think she will ever get over it.
“Carrie Fisher used to say of Frances [Bean Cobain, Courtney and Kurt’s daughter], ‘Well, we know she’s gonna come looking for the big hug,'” she recalled.
“I don’t quite know what that means, but it’s one of those great Carrie things. The game’s not over yet, but one really pertinent thing about grief is to not let anyone tell you that it should be over, ‘It’s been 15 years, it should be over now.’ ‘It’s been 25 years, you should be over it by now.’

“You get over it when you get over it, which is probably never.”
Courtney has constant reminders of Kurt and remembers being visited by his ghost once.
She said: “When I moved to Hancock Park from Seattle with Frances and Edward [Norton, her ex-boyfriend], I saw Kurt in a chair for a moment and he said ‘hi’ to me and then he left.”
