Kurt Cobain Threatened To Disband Nirvana In Angry David Geffen Letter

(Classic Rock) A letter penned by Kurt Cobain to record label boss David Geffen is expected to fetch up to $30,000 at auction next month. The handwritten letter sees the late Nirvana frontman tell of his anger at a 1992 Vanity Fair article which suggested his wife Courtney Love had binged on heroin while pregnant with the couple's daughter Frances Bean.

Cobain strongly denies the claims and threatens to disband Nirvana if action wasn't taken against the magazine. It was written as Nirvana were working on their third album, In Utero.

The letter addressed to the Geffen Records boss reads: "Something so severely defamatory towards my family has come up in an article in Vanity Fair that has forced me to decide on breaking up my band.

"The article suggest Courtney and I have been taking heroin constantly throughout her pregnancy, which is not true. Courtney found out she was first pregnant within the first month of our drug binge, she has stopped using and has since been visiting Danny Goldberg's pediatrician on a regular basis."
