Courtney Love: There's no one like Kurt

Courtney Love: There's no one like Kurt

Courtney Love will never have a "friend" like Kurt Cobain.

The Hole singer still regards her late husband - with who she had daughter Frances, now 22 - as her "soulmate" and doesn't think she will ever have as strong a relationship with anyone else as she did with the Nirvana frontman, who committed suicide in 1994.

She said: "We were best friends. I've had great boyfriends since, but I'll never have another friend like that. It's that punch drunk love, where you meet your soul mate and you're 25 and you're fucking and talking and fighting and f***ing.

"There are other kinds of love, more mature love. But this was a soul mate thing."

Kurt's life is documented in 'Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck' and Courtney finds it tough watching the documentary, which was made by Brett Morgan and executive produced by her daughter.

Speaking at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of the movie, she said: "This was my fourth time seeing it. This time I experienced some shame. Mostly I get really sad.

"There's guilt, you know, about what I could have done.

"I told myself I wouldn't see it again, but I did. Self-punishment I guess.

"It's just such a beautiful movie. The first time I saw it was with Frances and Brett, and it was beautiful. I got to spend a little more time with Kurt and Frances..."
