Courtney Sells

Courtney Love has reportedly sold a 25 percent interest in her share of Nirvana’s publishing catalog to former Virgin Records exec Larry Mestel, who now runs Primary Wave Music Publishing.

The deal was likely worth more than $50 million.

More than 98 percent of Nirvana’s publishing rights were inherited by Love when Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994.

The troubled grunge diva told Rolling Stone that managing the estate was “too much for me.”

She and Mestel would collaborate to “remain very tasteful” while Mestel promised to be true to “who the songwriter was and what his passions and tastes would be.”
