NFC News Courtney Love recalls her last conversation with Cobain in Fuse interview
From 411mania.com: "Courtney says their last talk was about money - specifically what they stood to lose if Kurt pulled Nirvana off of Lollapalooza.

Courtney said, 'It was about getting him into rehab. Oh no, it's worse than that, my last conversation was if he didn't do Lollapoalooza, it was gross, it was gross... like Billy [Corgan] would make 11.5 million from it. It was the last thing he wanted to hear. He didn't care. I got totally put up to it. The people around us were fucking evil, like, 'You guys are going to go broke'. When he died he had 38 million dollars and no one knows where that went.' "
