Courtney Love Shares The ‘Good Boyfriend’ She Had After The Death Of Kurt Cobain
Hole lead vocalist and late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain‘s wife Courtney Love recently shared a photo on her official Instagram stories, revealing the ‘good boyfriend’ she had after losing Cobain while answering a fan’s question, and apparently, it’s the famous actor Edward Norton.
As many of you know, in addition to being a famous figure in the alternative and grunge scenes of the 1990s, Courtney Love also had a sensational relationship with Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. Despite the time that the two first met is quite unclear, they most likely met around 1990, and they officially became a couple by 1992.
How Kurt Cobain And Courtney Love Got Married
The couple got married on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii on February 24, 1992, and welcomed their first child on August 18, a daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, who was born in Los Angeles. Despite being one of the most iconic couples in music history, Love and Cobain’s relationship was quite toxic according to many mostly due to their heroin addiction.
The inevitable incident happened when Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain was found dead at his home in Seattle, Washington, at the age of 27, on April 8, 1994. That’s when Courtney Love started to struggle and frequently displayed hysterical behaviors on stage, such as flashing crowds, stage diving, and getting into fights with audience members.

Thanks to her returning to acting, she started dating her co-star Edward Norton following the release of ‘The People vs. Larry Flynt,‘ and the two dated until 1999.
During a recent Q&A session with her fans, Courtney Love revealed her ‘good boyfriend’ after losing his husband Kurt Cobain when a fan asked. Apparently, Love had a few good boyfriends such as Edward Norton with whom she shared an old black & white picture via an Instagram story.
Here’s what a fan asked:
“After Kurt, have you had GOOD boyfriends?”
To which Courtney replied:
“A few actually. Here’s one, Edward Norton.”
