Cobain widow agrees Nirvana lawsuit

Courtney Love has settled a deal over Nirvana earnings

Courtney Love and a management firm have settled a million dollar (£642,000) lawsuit over the profits of the sale of Nirvana's publishing catalogue, court records show.

Courtney, widow of former Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain, was sued by London & Co two years ago, who claimed she failed to share the earnings of a deal in which she sold a portion of Nirvana's catalogue for nearly 20 million dollars (£12.8 million).

Court records show lawyers for London & Co and Love told a judge last Wednesday that they had settled and the case was dismissed.

The Hole frontwoman has controlled many of the rights to Cobain and Nirvana's work since his suicide in Seattle in 1994.

Her attorney James Janowitz confirmed the settlement but said he could not provide any further details.

Putting money into a savings account gives you the freedom to travel, write and study. Don't be ashamed of your needs; they encompass your personality.More
