What Kind Of Publicity Stunt Was It To Release A Note Found In Dead Kurt Cobain's Wallet From 1993? And Who Benefits?

Courtney Love has launched an attack on Jewish people in the music industry, claiming that they continue to profit from the death of her husband Kurt Cobain.
An interesting comment on the article:
"I’m Jewish, and about a third of my friends are Jewish. Generally speaking, we do not talk to each other in that way. We occasionally crack an off-color joke where we’ll say “Wow, what a Jew” when a friend asks for loaned money to be returned, but I don’t think I’ve ever heard a Jew use the words “Jew loan officers,” “Jew bankers,” “Jew lawyers,” etc. Regardless, it’s kind of a moot point, because Courtney Love is only 1/4 Jewish. Frankly, she doesn’t have the right to be in on the joke. "

Courtney Love loses rights to Kurt Cobain's image
Income from late Nirvana singer's name and likeness pass from widow to daughter, Frances Bean, in exchange for $2.75m loan
(on Frances' trust fund)
"But rights to Nirvana's music seems to have nothing to do with either of them (Courtney or Frances): administrative rights for Cobain's songs are overseen by a company called Primary Wave Music, and Primary Wave's Larry Mestel also owns 50% of the publishing rights."

Jack Black rejects Courtney Love's claim that Muppets misused Nirvana
Singer's claim that Smells Like Teen Spirit cover in The Muppets 'raped' the memory of Kurt Cobain is absurd, says Black

(Smells Like Teen Spirit used in stupid Muppet movie. At least Love has some romantic hold on the true value of Nirvana's music.)

Kurt Cobain death-scene note mocks vows to Courtney Love

Author: Courtney Love, Not Kurt Cobain, Wrote Note Found In Cobain's Wallet Upon His Death
""The note was promoted as Kurt mocking their wedding vows three years after they were married. It just doesn't make any sense," Cross said."

I wanted to say that due to all the above other content it looks like she's no longer of use to the biz or has fallen out of favor. However, CBS seems to have put out content before on his suicide being suspect.
"Whatever the reason, the police report proves beyond any doubt that Kurt never barricaded himself in the room, and it clearly demonstrates that another person could have easily been in the greenhouse at the time of Kurt's death. Thus, one of the most convincing pieces of so-called evidence pointing to suicide is nothing more than a myth. It is a myth that has never been dispelled by a single biographer, nor by any of the media that originally reported on the barricaded door. It is a myth that many distraught teenagers would cling to in the months and years to come."
