London: Former Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain’s widow Courtney Love has settled a million-dollar (642,000 pounds) lawsuit over the profits of the sale of Nirvana`s publishing catalogue, court records show.

London & Co sued Love two years ago, claiming 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 pounds).

Court records show attorneys for London & Co and Love told a judge that they had settled and the case was dismissed, reports the Mirror.

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

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