To this day, there are still conspiracy theories to the role widow Courtney had in his death. Kurt and Courtney were married in 1992 after Courtney learned she was pregnant with Francis Bean Cobain.

But Twitter fans are also attacking other celebrities in Kurt's memory Tweeting (via Metro) messages like, "I wish he could replace Justin Bieber's existence..." and "Give us back Kurt Cobain and we will send you Lady Gaga."
