Courtney Love unleashed an expletive-laden tirade at an Australian concert-goer after he threw a beer can at her on stage. The 50-year-old U.S. singer was so incensed at the perpetrator that she threatened to kill him if he disrespects her again.
The widow of Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain was at the Thebarton Theatre in Adelaide on Friday for her Australian tour when one fan decided to throw a beer can at her for unknown reasons.
It’s unclear if Love was hit, but she was understandably angry.
“In 20 years, no one has thrown a beer can at me except for you f---er. Your weenie must be this f------ big,” she lashed out at the fan.
“Do not do it again!”
Her cuss-filled outburst was met with applause and cheers from the rest of the audience.
“What a f------ piece of bullying s---bag!” she continued with her rant, threatening the fan with, “Throw a beer can… I will f------ kill you!”
The Advertiser reported that the incident is believed to have happened around two songs in her 90-minute show.
Patrons are not allowed to bring beer cans in the theatre.
Love recently admitted that she lost “about U$27 million” of “Nirvana money” after her husband took his own life in 1994.
“I know that’s a lifetime of money to most people, but I’m a big girl,” she told Sunday Times. “It’s rock ‘n roll, it’s Nirvana money, I had to let it go. I make enough to live on, I’m financially solvent, I focus on what I make now.”
She added that the majority of the money that she lost went to settling lawsuits.
Love has a daughter with Cobain, 21-year-old Frances Bean, who is estranged from her.
She is currently on a solo nationwide tour in Australia.
