Courtney Love over Cobain

Courtney Love is over the death of husband Kurt Cobain, and says his 1994 suicide is just ''the way it goes''.

Courtney Love is over the death of Kurt Cobain.

The Hole singer - currently about to make a comeback with new album 'Nobody's Daughter' - has spoken bluntly about the death of her Nirvana rocker husband, who committed suicide in 1994.

She told Spin magazine: "I married a guy, he killed himself, I inherited everything. That's the way it goes."

Courtney, 45, is currently embroiled in a custody battle over her 17-year-old daughter with Kurt, Frances Bean, who is living with her grandmother Wendy O'Connor and the rocker's sister Kimberly Dawn Cobain after Frances took out a restraining order against her mother. Courtney - who has been known to have drug problems in the past - said of the case: "Those snarly-as O'Connors want cheques. I'm through supporting their a*es."

Yesterday (11.02.10), a Los Angeles judge extended a custody order restricting Courtney's access to her daughter to remain in effect until another review in April. The original order was issued last December.

As well as the battle for her daughter, Courtney is also beset by financial problems, and last year claimed Kurt's $750 million legacy had been stolen from her.

The 'Celebrity Skin' singer claimed $45 million in cash and $705 million worth of other assets have gone missing after thieves set up bank accounts and made property deals in her name.

In a further blow, she also missed her first comeback show last night. The singer had been due to perform a solo set at the Proud Galleries venue in Camden, north London, but was held up in traffic in a different part of the city, when police raided a home near to wear she is staying.

A disappointed fan told BANG Showbiz: "This was a big night, I was really looking forward to seeing Courtney, but she's always been an unreliable rock star. We're partying here anyway. I still can't wait for her comeback."

Hole will play London's Shepherd's Bush Empire on February 17.
