Courtney Love ‘plans to sell Nirvana stake’

The ex-Hole singer has been in London

Courtney Love has said she is preparing to sell a share of her rights to the Nirvana back catalogue.

Love has been in London over the last week. While in the UK she’s had meetings about a new record deal, making a TV documentary, taking a theatre role in the West End, and been to various gigs.

“I have decided that I need some co-management and a strategic partner [to help me] as it’s such a huge responsibility,” Love told NME.COM of her Nirvana plans. “This is the right thing to do for my family…whoever I do this deal with, I really have to like.”

Love is also quoted in the Sunday Mirror (March 12) as saying that she’s thinking about selling “25 per cent of the catalogue for quite a lot of money.”

Love was married to Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain prior to his suicide in 1994.
