According to The Pulse Of Radio, Courtney Love admitted at the Tribeca Film Festival on Sunday (April 19) that she and her late husband, NIRVANA frontman Kurt Cobain, made a sex tape together. Love's revelation came during a question-and-answer session following the festival premiere of "Montage Of Heck", director Brett Morgen's documentary about Cobain. Love, who gave Morgen unrestricted access to video and audio recordings from her and Cobain's personal archives, said, "Somehow Brett found the sex tape. Everyone makes one sex tape once in their lives."

Love also revealed during the talk that other intimate footage of her and Cobain was shot by HOLE guitarist Eric Erlandson, who was Love's boyfriend before Cobain. She told the audience, "Eric would come over to our house and shoot really intimate stuff with me and Kurt."

Love has been seen as a dark figure in Cobain's life, but Cobain biographer Charles R. Cross told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that their relationship was a complex one. "I think one of the difficulties is that they had a very… you know, they had a marriage that sometimes was good for each of them and many times was bad for each of them. But Kurt picked Courtney, and she picked him, and he clearly loved her from things that I read in the diary. But was she good for him? I think the answer is sometimes she was and sometimes she wasn't."

Morgen turned to Love at one point during the Q&A and said that it was "completely courageous of you" to give him so much access to their personal materials.

Love, who has seen the film four times, told V magazine recently that watching the film with her and Cobain's daughter Frances was a "very healing" experience.

"Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck" will premiere on HBO on May 4. The film is constructed as a collage of previously unseen home movies, interviews, animation, photographs and other artifacts, all accompanied by Cobain's music.
