Courtney Love has denied rumours that a Broadway musical based on Nirvana's Kurt Cobain is currently in the works.

Last month, Sam Lufti revealed that he is currently co-managing Courtney Love and working with her on a project about the life of her late husband.

However, Love has scotched the rumours in an interview with The Observer, telling the newspaper "there will be no musical" as "sometimes it's best just to leave things alone".

Lufti let slip the rumoured plans in a LA courtroom last month during his trial against Britney Spears and her parents over breach of contract, libel and unpaid management fees.

He said, reports Music-News, that the pair are "are currently working on a possible motion picture or Broadway musical based on the Nirvana catalogue, based on her life and Kurt Cobain's". But he did add that the project was in its very early stages.

Love recently gave up some rights to Cobain's likeness and Nirvana's publishing, which has caused anger among fans who believe she is watering down the singer's legacy. This has been highlighted with the news that CBS are working on a new family sitcom titled Smells Like Teen Spirit.

This has prompted Love to defend her actions in the press and condemning some usage of Nirvana's material in films, such as 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' in the recent Muppets movie. "I got bullied into selling what I sold," she said. "I regret it so much. I'm never selling the rest of it."
