Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love
Though by conventional standards their marriage was tumultuous and rife with drug use, Cobain is quoted as saying, "I'm married and I'm more attracted to Courtney than I ever have been toward a person."

Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love

1991-1994

Before Courtney Love's current career as a tabloid-attracting car wreck, she was better known as the front woman of actually-quite-good grunge outfit Hole and most infamously, the partner of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. Possessing both the enigmatic chemistry of John Lennon and Yoko Ono's relationship and the manic drug-fuelled downward spiral of Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious and his girlfriend Nancy Spungen, Kurt and Courtney's relationship was both inspired and desperately tragic.

The pair met at a concert in 1991 just as Nirvana were being catapulted from obscurity to multi-platinum megastar status and married a year later when Courtney became pregnant with their daughter, Francis Bean.

Though Kurt and Courtney seemed to stimulate musical creativity in each other (Kurt is rumoured to have given a helping hand with the song writing of Hole's excellent Live Through This album, while Courtney inspired the twisted Nirvana classic 'Heart Shaped Box'), off the stage and out of the studio their life was a mess.

Love was accused of using heroin during her pregnancy and Cobain's drug problem swung out of control as he tried to cope with fame and a chronic stomach ulcer. Then Cobain had an unsuccessful suicide attempt in Europe and back home in Seattle was cautioned by police after Love called them when the couple had a domestic dispute. Finally, after checking out of rehab and with Courtney busy promoting the upcoming Hole album, Cobain shot himself dead at his own home on April 8, 1994.

Though by conventional standards their marriage was tumultuous and rife with drug use, Cobain is quoted as saying, "I'm married and I'm more attracted to Courtney than I ever have been toward a person."

In the eyes of many Nirvana fans, Courtney was Yoko to Kurt's Lennon, but while Lennon's fans may have resented Yoko, they never blamed her for his death. This was not the case with Love, who in the years after Kurt's death has suffered abuse and accusations from fans who thought she, directly or indirectly, killed her husband. Fellow musicians have also been on the anti-Courtney crusade. Former Nirvana member Dave Grohl is openly hostile to her and the Tori Amos song 'Professional Widow' is rumoured to be about her as well.

Kesha wrote letters to fans 'revealing Dr Luke's abuse' before filing lawsuit MusicFIX Blog by Carmarlena Murdaca Oct 19 2014 2:39PM

Several months before going public with claims she'd been sexually assaulted by Dr. Luke, Kesha wrote a series of letters to fans revealing her "torturous" abuse.

According to Buzzfeed, the 27-year-old replied to fans on pages of a children's colouring book, while being treated in rehab for her eating disorder in January.

Specifically referring to Dr. Luke as her abuser, Kesha wrote to one fan: "Dr. Luke has tortured me and my family. He did do what people know about and so much more terrible s---."

In a second letter, the singer pinpoints the 41-year-old producer once again, saying: "These music business a------ (well, Dr. Luke) had almost successfully crushed my magic."

A third letter sees Kesha referring to her eating disorder, claiming that Dr. Luke was the cause of her ongoing battle.

"Someone I work with has literally driven me into this disease, tortured me and f----- with me and my family," she wrote.

Only last week, Kesha filed a lawsuit against Dr. Luke, claiming he had "sexually, physically, verbally and emotionally" abused her over a ten-year period.

Days later, it was revealed that Kesha's mum had allegedly threatened via email to go public with the rape allegations, if Luke did not revoke her daughter's contract.

According to TMZ, the email stated: "We, me and Kesha and her friends… like Lady Gaga, are going to make all of this really PUBLIC, in the next few days. Luke date raped Kesha when she was 18…

"Luke also gave Kesha pills. She ended up naked in his hotel room 2 days later. No longer a virgin? Do we all want this to come out? Either Luke releases Kesha from all legal contracts, and gives back all my publishing, or we, Kesha and I, tell the truth."

After Kesha's legal team filed their lawsuit, Dr Luke filed his own against the singer… claiming she was "lying to get out of her legally binding contract".

Dr. Luke, is responsible for all of Kesha's music and gave the singer her first record deal in 2005.
