Courtney Love is reportedly going broke and wants to sell her rights to the Nirvana back catalogue - left to her by her late husband Kurt Cobain.
The troubled rocker, who has been battling drug addiction for the past year, is on the verge of bankruptcy and is hoping to cash in on the extensive collection of songs - which includes classic tracks 'Smells Like Teen Spirit', 'Come As You Are' and 'All Apologies'.According to a report in America's New York Post newspaper, Love is looking for $100 million for her rights to the music. Her decision is sure to infuriate Cobain's former band mates Krist Novoselic and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl who fought a lengthy legal battle with Love over royalties and control of the songs. Cobain, a self-confessed heroin addict, shot himself dead in 1994 leaving Love widowed and his then 18-month daughter, Frances Bean, fatherless.
