Courtney Love opens up on the frauds she faced
As part of the FT Financial Literacy and Inclusion Campaign, the musician shared her story about making – and losing – a fortune. She said that her family has been the victim of every single financial crime there is. She revealed how she had to go through some ‘horrible’ things, and she lost money in the millions.
She said: “My family has been the victim of every single financial crime there is. I don’t want anybody to feel sorry for us, but some really horrible things have happened – we’ve had millions taken from us.”
Courtney Love recalled the early 1990’s, which was before the saddening demise of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. She stated that the financial situation worsened following his death. Recently, she was informed about as many as five forged wills of her alongside several bank accounts, MasterCard and visas.
Kurt Cobain’s widow revealed that she got to know about Centurion cards with million-dollar credit lines. She found one which was being used in 2005 by someone she had fired back in 1999.
Here is what she said:
“It started a few years before Kurt [Cobain]’s death, in the early 1990s, and only got worse after he died. Recently my manager and an attorney discovered five forged wills of mine, 67 bank accounts, 102 Mastercards and Visas. There were Centurion cards with million-dollar credit lines – I found one that was being used in 2005 by someone I had fired in 1999! Basically, they stole every single cent. I was writing Tweets the other day about it all, but I didn’t publish them: each one sounded like a line of dialogue from Succession.”
