Love settles defamation lawsuit with designer

London: Rocker Courtney Love has settled her defamation lawsuit with fashion designer Dawn Simorangkir for a reported $430,000.

According to a report, Love has agreed to hand over a sum immediately and will make a series of payments over the next three years.

"The amount of the settlement says it all. Her (Love) reprehensible defamatory comments were completely false and $430,000 is quite a significant way to say I am sorry. One would hope that, given this disaster, restraint of pen, tongue and tweet would guide Ms. Love`s future conduct," a website quoted Simorangkir`s lawyer Bryan Freedman as saying.

Simorangkir filed a lawsuit against Love in 2009 after claiming she was defamed in a series of messages the singer posted on Twitter.com.

The fashion designer accused Love of ruining her business, while the 46-year-old insisted her online comments were opinion.
