Cobain's ashes not stolen, says Courtney Love rep

According to Gigwise, Kurt Cobain's ashes were never stolen from the home of Courtney Love, as previously reported by tabloids.

Love's publicist, Alan Nierob revealed that Cobain's remains "were never taken" and said the story had been "erroneously reported".

Nierob responded after a German artist claimed she would smoke Cobain's ashes as part of an exhibition at Berlin's Wagner + Partner gallery later this month.

A statement for the exhibition said Natascha Stellmach had "acquired" Cobain's ashes by a "kind of magic" and would smoke them in order to free Cobain "into the ether from the media circus".
