Covered (cupboard) love

I’ve always thought that the expression “cupboard love” is a bit odd, though that is the correct version. I’m sure that I’ve heard or read the phrase “covered love” as a corruption that also seems to change the meaning; presumably a love that is hidden rather than one that is open but false.
