Courtney Love, ah, how me miss the old you. Whereas once it was all
she could do to keep her dress on to get the attention she craved, Ms. Love has
tired of the red-hot spotlight, and the ceaseless pilgrimages, and announced
that she plans to decamp from the home she shared with her late husband, Kurt
Love reportedly told the London newspaper, the Sunday
Independent, that she is planning to sell the Lake Washington mansion she
bought with Cobain in 1993, due to the constant traffic of kids on pilgrimages
to the Nirvana leader's house. Love told the paper, "I have a nice house, but I
can't live there. Kids [are] everywhere all the time."
Love also alluded
to the move for the sake of her and Cobain's child, Frances Bean, of whom she
said, "I have a child who didn't do anything, and I love waking up and seeing
the mountains. That's my big heartbreak."
This comes after Love had the
greenhouse where Cobain committed suicide bulldozed last year thinking it would
dissuade gawkers. Love already reportedly begged off previous offers to sell
the house, including one to a group of wealthy Japanese businessmen who were
interested in the property several years ago.
"They were never going to
live there," Love told the London paper of what she suspected their motives
were. "They just wanted it. As what? A museum? Kurt wanted me to stay here, or
he would not have done it in the greenhouse."
Love is said to be
considering a move to her adopted city of Los Angeles and the purchase of a
horse farm in Olympia, Washington.
