Courtney Love signs deal to pen her own memoir

The Hole frontwoman will 'set the record straight' about her marriage to Kurt Cobain

Courtney Love has signed a deal to pen her own memoir.

The book will apparently “set the record straight” about her marriage to Nirvana late frontman Kurt Cobain, her career as a rock star and actress, and her relationships with other celebrities and her daughter, Frances Bean.

Love will write the as-yet untitled book for William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, reports Rolling Stone. It is expected to be released later this year.

Earlier this year writer Neil Strauss revealed that the singer offered up the chance to snort the ashes of her late husband in his book ‘Everyone Loves You When You Are Dead: Journeys Into Fame And Madness’.

According to Strauss, when he was once interviewing Love she showed him the drawer where she kept Nirvana frontman Cobain’s ashes. She then allegedly asked if he would like to snort them.

Nirvana are set to enter the Top Five in the UK album chart this weekend with the grunge legends’ reissued and repackaged version of 1991 album ‘Nevermind’.

Check NME on Sunday (October 2) at 7pm (GMT) for the full chart rundown.
