Hi, I'm a huge nirvana fan too! The main controversy, which I assume you're referring to, is whether Kurt Cobain died from suicide or murder. The investigator Love hired to find Cobain grew suspicious and became a leading voice with this conspiracy theory.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but man, the deeper you dig into the case, the weirder it gets. I personally don't believe it was just suicide, because a lot isn't consistent. However, some of that is based on gut feeling. There's a lot of evidence, with people interpreting it all differently. For example, his suicide note appears to reference leaving the music industry, before rapidly changing in style/handwriting and suddenly becoming more of a traditional suicide note. Supposedly, Love had pieces of paper in her handbag which had practice copies, where she had tried to copy Cobain's handwriting. There was a guy who stated that she offered him £10k (I think) to kill Cobain; this man, though arguably disreputable, has been filmed stating this. Hs died soon after. But he could have been after clout, Cobain was suicidal previously, etc, etc. There's weight to both sides.

Whether or not there's enough to sway you... That's up to you. I'd 100% recommend checking out the case, there's all kinds of interesting facts such as whether Cobain could have shot himself with the amount of drugs in his system, etc.

I'm not sure if this is the controversy you mean, but it's certainly huge. The entire case is... very controversial, very sad, and very interesting. I know an absolute ton about it, so feel free to dm me if you're researching and get lost!

Does it have to do with her comments about the Women's March?
