* EpilepticTrees:While the theory that she murdered Kurt Cobain may count as this, other theorists take it to a whole new level with a [[UsefulNotes/BillClinton Clinton Body Count]]-esque theory suggesting that she is a sociopath responsible for numerous murders all in the name of rising to prominence. Among others, they put responsibility on her for Kurt Cobain (of course) and Hole bassist Kristen Plaff's deaths.
* ImplausibleDeniability: At the Roast of PamelaAnderson, she'd punctuate some of her drunken (or high, it's unclear which) antics with "I've been clean and sober for a ''year''!" No one bought it for a second.
* JerkassWoobie: Between being abandoned by her mother at a young age, growing up practically unwanted by any of her family, spending her adolescence in Juvie, having to work as a stripper to make ends meet, narrowly escaping being raped during said job and the police not believing her story, the love of her life killing himself right when her life seemed to be getting on track, and her then [[YokoOhNo developing one of the biggest hatedoms in history because of it]], it is inarguable that Love has lived an extraordinarily hard life. However, her generally abrasive and reckless behavior makes it difficult, if not impossible, for anyone to feel sorry for her... at least for lengthy periods of time.
* TearJerker: Quite a few, including "Doll Parts," "Northern Star," and "Letter to God."
** The recording of her sobbingly reading Kurt's suicide note to a crowd shortly after his death became public.
* YokoOhNo: Much of the Music/{{Nirvana}} fandom ''hates'' her, with a vocal group of conspiracy theorists even insisting that she was responsible for his death.
** A frequent source of controversy was the allegation that Cobain either entirely wrote or heavily contributed to ''Live Through This'' (he only added backing vocals and guitar to two songs) -- Love did not help her case by rewriting the lyrics of the Nirvana outtake "Old Age" for ''My Body the Hand Grenade'' and not bothering to explain that it was originally a Nirvana song.
** That she almost seems to go out of her way to antagonize Nirvana fans and seemingly has little respect for her husband's legacy has only made things worse. She published his personal journals (Cobain was pretty anti-fame, and notoriously private), and then licensed his image to VideoGame/GuitarHero, so fans can force him to sing whatever they want. Admittedly, it IS funny to make him sing [[SitcomArchNemesis [=GNR=]]] songs, but Nirvana fans (and former band members) were not pleased. Her habit of holding up the release of pretty much any unreleased Nirvana stuff seemingly just ForTheEvulz threw even more fuel on the fire.
** At one point, she had a relationship with [[Music/NineInchNails Trent Reznor]], which didn't end well. Trent blames her for ruining his friendship with Music/ToriAmos, and both of them made songs seemingly attacking Love (NIN's "Starfuckers, Inc.", accompanied by a video which involved a lookalike being dunked in a tub of water, and Tori's "Professional Widow")
