Earlier this year Cobain was the subject of a critically-hailed HBO documentary, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, which used previously unseen home footage, journals and recordings to paint a portrait of the late singer.
At the film’s Tribeca Film Festival premiere in April, Love admitted to feeling “some shame” while watching it – at the time, it was her fourth time viewing it.
“Mostly I get really sad. There’s guilt, about what I could have done,” she said back then. “I told myself I wouldn’t see it again, but I did. Self-punishment I guess.”
She also opened up about the effect Cobain had on her, saying, “We were best friends.”
“I’ve had great boyfriends since, but I’ll never have another friend like that,” she admitted. “It’s that punch-drunk love, where you meet your soulmate and you’re 26 and f**king and talking and fighting and f**king. There are other kinds of love, more mature love. But this was a soulmate thing.”
Love and her daughter, who turned 23 years old on Aug. 18, served as executive producers on the doc.
