Courtney Love's 5 Most Disastrous Romances

Courtney Love

Courtney Love, er...”Courtney Michelle” as she supposedly now wants to be called, is having quite the messy, headline-making week. Not only is she embattled in a Twitter war with ex-lover Billy Corgan, she also went on Howard Stern and claimed that she had slept with Gavin Rossdale while he was still dating his now wife Gwen Stefani...Oy. Is Courtney Love Really Dating Andre Balazs?

Call us crazy, but we think Courtney may be carrying around a wee bit of relationship baggage. Let’s review the former wild child’s romantic history, shall we?

1. Kurt Cobain - Courtney will forever be linked to Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. Not only because of ‘90s rock music lore, but because the two had a child together, Frances Bean Cobain, 17, who Courtney has a rocky relationship with (see below.) Kurt and Courtney met in 1990 at a rock club and wed two years later. During the short time that they were together, both Kurt and Courtney’s careers sky-rocketed; however, their drug and music-fueled love wasn’t to last. Kurt committed suicide in 1994.

2. Billy Corgan - The on-off romance between Smashing Pumpkins singer Billy Corgan and Courtney Love did not end very well either, it seems. The pair got together before Courtney dated and wed Kurt, and supposedly rekindled their love after Kurt’s death in 1994 and then again in 2006. Courtney once publicly criticized Billy for refusing to attend the 16th birthday of Frances Bean, but now it’s Billy who’s throwing the verbal punches at Courtney in the press, tweeting this week that she is an awful mother to Frances Bean. 

“Only u could abandon such a beautiful, incredible child who is smarter than u, cooler than u, and better than u," Billy tweeted. "Oops, did I say too much?"
