Seems like, Courtney Love, who earlier gave her support to the documentary ‘Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck,’ doesn’t share the same sentiments towards the new docudrama ‘Soaked In Bleach,’ another film about her relationship with her late husband.
The ‘Hole’ singer’s attorney wrote that the controversial Benjamin Statler-directed docudrama, a look at the death of Nirvana frontman that was ruled a suicide in 1994, falsely presents a widely and repeatedly debunked conspiracy theory that accuses Love of orchestrating the death of her husband, Deadline.com reported.
The attorney added that a false accusation of criminal behavior is defamatory, which entitles Ms. Cobain to both actual and presumed damages.
No complaint has been filed with the courts as of yet.
The project centers on private investigator Tom Grant, hired by Love to find Cobain after he left a substance abuse treatment center in Los Angeles on March 30, 1994.
During the period between the musician’s disappearance and the April 8 discovery of his body, Grant recorded many of the conversations he had with Love.
Those recordings, paired with re-enactments, make up much of the film, though documentary footage as well as interviews with people close to the matter are used.
