15Courtney Love - Lost About $27 Million Of "Nirvana Money"
Courtney Love is most famous for being married to Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain, until his untimely death in 1994. Courtney was a singer and guitarist herself, but her fame didn't compare to the enormous success and influence Nirvana had on their fans. Most of her wealth
came from Kurt's band. After his death, Courtney inherited Kurt's writing and publishing rights, which were valued at a staggering $130 million and $150 million. However, Courtney admitted that she "lost about $27 million" of "Nirvana money" and that the rest of her millions went to lawsuits and legal battles between herself and the surviving members of Nirvana. She also admitted that some of Kurt's work was even lost or stolen, resulting in the loss of millions of dollars.
