Kurt Cobain bought a new house last year

"If it was him he should get his ass back home" - Courtney Love

Identity thieves have apparently used used dead grunge rocker Kurt Cobain’s social security number to buy a $3.2 million house in New Brunswick, New Jersey. The Nirvana frontman’s widow, Courtney Love, revealed that 188 credit cards accounts have been fraudulently opened in her name. Love, 43, claims that the fraud has been going on for over 5 years, but no
one would listen to her claims due to mental state and drug problems. She met with authorities in Van Nuys, CA last week and presented details of a probe by forensic accountants which discovered $72 million missing from accounts.

When Kurt shot himself dead in April 1994 at 27, Courtney became owner of 98% of Nirvana’s grunge catalog. With sales of more than 62 million albums worldwide, his estate rakes in $42 million every year, which mainly goes into a trust fund for their daughter Frances Bean, now 14. Courtney lost control of her finances as she struggled with drug addiction, and sold 25% of the catalog two years ago. She called in forensic accountants to investigate after fearing that cash was being taken. Calling it "one of the biggest ID theft cases in US history", Love said she had high hopes of bringing the crooks to justice, adding: “I know who they are. “Taking a child’s money and future is a really horrible thing.”

The most surprising portion of this story is the discovery that New Brunswick, NJ has homes valued at over $3 million. Apparently, I've been to all the wrong neighborhoods.
