A teddy bear shaped bag with Kurt Cobain's ashes has reportedly been stolen from Courtney Love's home, along with a considerable amount of clothing and jewelry.
"I can't believe anyone would take Kurt's ashes from me," Love said in an interview with News of the World. "I find it disgusting and right now I'm suicidal. If I don't get them back I don't know what I'll do."
When Cobain committed suicide in 1994, some of the Nirvana frontman's ashes were scattered at a Buddhist temple in New York and in the Wishkah River near his hometown of Aberdeen, WA. The rest stayed with Love. "[I] used to take them everywhere with me just so I could feel Kurt was still with me," Love explained. "Now it feels like I have lost him all over again."
