Courtney Love NOT Replacing Paula Abdul

February 1, 2007, 4:02 am GMT

Courtney Love's publicist and "American Idol" executive producer Nigel Lythgoe have denied reports on Love to replace Paula Abdul as a judge on "American Idol."


No, Courtney Love is not going to replace Paula Abdul as a judge on "American Idol."

Both Love's publicist and "American Idol" executive producer Nigel Lythgoe have denied the Us Weekly report yesterday January 31st that Lythgoe called her office last week to ask whether she was interested in appearing on the show.

Lythgoe, denied having ever called Love, said in a statement, "I did not call Courtney Love and am afraid someone may have misrepresented me. Courtney Love is a very talented artist, but the judges for American Idol are Paula, Randy and Simon. We have no plans to add to or replace any of them."

A source close to Love reportedly claimed the phone call "was probably a prank."
