Courtney Love "would kill" Kurt Cobain if he were still alive.

The Hole frontwoman admits she is still "mad" with her late husband - who committed suicide in 1994 when their daughter Frances Bean was just 20 months old - for his multiple attempts to end his life and battle with heroin addiction.

Asked if she is angry with Kurt for killing himself, Courtney told Vanity Fair magazine: "Mad? Ya think?! If he came back right now I'd have to kill him, for what he did to us. I'd f**king kill him. I'd f**k him, and then I'd kill him.

"He tried to kill himself three times. He OD'd at least five times. I was the f**king E.M.S.[Emergency Medical Services] I was always sticking pins in his balls. I carried around Narcan [a drug used to revive heroin users]."

Courtney - who has been estranged from Frances since 2009 - has repeatedly claimed she has been defrauded out of much of Kurt's money, but has also now insisted her financial problems began long before the rocker's death.

She said: "We could never find our money. 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?"
