Courtney Love has revealed Kurt Cobain tried to kill himself three times before he succeeded in 1994.

In a candid interview with Vanity Fair, Love was asked what she'd do if the Nirvana frontman was to reappear.

Responding that she'd "kill him" for the grief he caused those close to him, she went on to admit his suicide wasn't the first time he'd tried to end his life.

"He tried to kill himself three times!" she said, adding heroin addict Cobain had also overdosed on several occasions.

He OD'd at least five times. I was the fucking EMS (Emergency Medical Services). I was always sticking pins in his balls.



She also said she carried a can of Narcan, referring to the drug used to jolt overdosing heroin users back to life.

Love also explained the couple had financial problems. "We could never find our money," she said. "We had $135,000 in our bank account. They said that if he would go do Lollapalooza he would make $11 million… Do you think Kurt would have killed himself if he had known he had $54 million?"
