A spokesperson for Beats Music has denied that Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, and Chief Creative Officer of the company, has left following their acquisition by Apple in a $3bn deal.

A representative of the company has denied reports by USA Today suggesting that Trent Reznor will not be part of the company after they weresold to Apple last week in a landmark $3 billion deal (£1.8 billion) deal.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, the spokesperson for Beats Music said that all reports regarding Reznor's departure are "all false."

The USA Today report stated that the Nine Inch Nails man is one of a few key figures to have recently exited the business, alongside one of Beats' principal technology executives, Fredric Vinna, who has moved to Spotify, and co-founder, Ola Sars, to a Spotify-backed venture.

A spokesperson for Reznor and Beats also told Billboard that the report is inaccurate, but did not specified whether the part about Reznor is true or not. USA Today does not attribute the information to a source.

Reznor had previously complained about Apple, when the 'The Downward Spiral' app was not allowed to be sold on iTunes. Reznor said at the time: “You can buy ‘The Downward Fucking Spiral’ on iTunes, but you can’t allow an iPhone app that may have a song with a bad word somewhere in it … Hey Apple, I just got some spam about fucking hot Asian teens through your e-mail program. I just saw two guys having explicit anal sex right there in Safari! On my iPhone! Come on Apple, think your policies through and for fuck’s sake get your app approval scenario together.”
