Courtney Love to Auction Former Husband's Belongings

Courtney Love plans to sell most of the items which once belonged to her husband, former Nirvana leader Kurt Cobain.

Comparing her house to a "mausoleum," the 42-year-old rock singer says she plans to hold a charity auction. Love and Cobain wed in 1992 and later that year had a daughter, Frances Bean.

Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994. Speaking to AOL Music, Love says "My daughter doesn't need to inherit a giant...bag full of flannel...shirts." She says Frances will get one of Cobain's sweaters, a guitar, and the lyrics to Nirvana's biggest hit, "Smells Like Teen Spirit."

AOL publicist Kurt Patat gave no date for the auction.
