Courtney Love -- Guitar Hero 'Raped' Kurt's Image

9/10/2009 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Courtney Love Courtney Love is on the warpath -- threatening to "sue the s**t" out of the people behind Guitar Hero after she saw Kurt Cobain's image in the video game.

Cobain's widow just unleashed a serious Twitter attack on Activision -- the game developer -- saying they never got her permission to use Kurt's image ... and she wouldn't have given it to them if they had asked. Here's a sample:

"not in twenty JILLION years would i EVER have allowed this and this islethal."

"we get NO money for this, travesty, Frances gets NO money for the rape."

Love is no stranger to lawsuits ... we'll let you know when she takes this thing to court.

UPDATE: Activision released the following statement:
"Guitar Hero secured the necessary licensing rights from the Cobain estate in a written agreement signed by Courtney Love to use Kurt Cobain's likeness as a fully playable character in Guitar Hero® 5."

Kurt probably killed himself just to get the hell away from the money-grubbing piece of white trash Courtney.

That daughter is who I feel sorry for....does she have anyone in her life who is normal and a good influence? I hope so for her sake.

she's always moaning that Frances is getting taken to the cleaners while meanwhile she gets on Twitter and shows us things she is buying all the time that cost a fortune as well as the cost of hotel rooms she is wrecking.

She's nuts.

Kids need to learn how to play a real guitar instead guitar hero/rock band games.

Where I used to work I saw a copy of Courtney Love's credit report. Foreclosed houses, repo'd cars, and millions of dollars owed to credit cards. She even had the nerve to pay back one of the creditors $100 a month. Then you see the papers where she is out shopping in Beverly Hills. People like this gross me out! She's only in it for the money!

I think Courtney owns the rights to the use of Cobain's name and image, so if Activision can't produce a signed legal contract then Courtney wins.

To the Courtney haters: Kurt was a drug addict. The guy had some serious problems that apparently he was convinced he couldn't fix. Courtney might have been complicit in his addiction, but she wasn't the cause of it nor was she the cause of his suicide.
