Los Angeles: Court records show a management firm and Courtney Love have settled a USD 1 million lawsuit over the profits of the sale of Nirvana`s publishing catalog.

Love is the widow of former Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain. London & Co. sued Love two years ago, claiming she failed to share the earnings of a deal in which sold a portion of Nirvana`s catalog for nearly USD 20 million.

Court records show attorneys 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.

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