Cobain widow settles lawsuit over Nirvana earnings
A management firm and Courtney Love have settled a £642,000 lawsuit over the profits of the sale of Nirvana’s publishing catalogue, court records show.
Mrs Love is the widow of former Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain. London & Co. sued Mrs 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 (£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.
Mrs Love’s lawyer James Janowitz confirmed the settlement but said he could not provide any further details.
