The Celebrity Skin hitmaker - who was married to the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain - earns the majority of her money through royalties and other revenue's from Kurt's estate, as well as from her acting career and touring with her band Hole.

In a previous interview, Courtney - who claims she's been sober since 2007 - admitted that her and Kurt struggled with money issues before his suicide in 1994. She said: "We could never find our money ... Do you think Kurt would have killed himself if he had known he had $54 million (R564 300 000)?"

Courtney and Kurt's daughter Frances Bean Cobain took control of End of Music LLC, which earns money from Kurt's publicity rights, in 2012.
