In a since-deleted Instagram post shared on the 29th anniversary of Cobain’s death in 2023, the "Celebrity Skin" songstress wrote a tribute to her departed husband, whom she dotingly called "my twin flame."

"I love beautiful hands, it’s the first thing I look at in another. I love that the only photograph of Kurt that Stipe took… Micheal saw these hands," Love captioned a black-and-white photo of Cobain's hands clasped together. "It is one of the only images (or sounds/ tastes etc) that makes me miss him deeply. … Dear Kurt D. C. we love & miss you."
