Courtney Love has settled a legal battle over money earned from Nirvana songs.

Courtney - the widow of Nirvana's frontman Kurt Cobain - inherited most of the band's publishing rights upon his death in 1994.

She had become embroiled in a legal battle with management company London and Co two years ago, when they sued her for $1 million, claiming Courtney failed to share her earnings from selling a portion of the rights.

It is estimated Courtney's earnings from the sale was nearly $20 million.

However, London And Co has now told a Los Angeles court the case has been settled, which has been confirmed by Courtney's lawyer, James Janowitz - though no further details have been given.

Despite Kurt Cobain presently being the world's highest earning dead musician, Courtney has made repeated claims she has been defrauded out of all the singer's money, and at one point was too poor to afford even shoes for her and daughter Frances.

She said last year: "Why did I have no money? The simple answer to that is because I'm a widow and because I'm a woman.

"I get exploited. Not when I'm playing music. But financially, very much so."

Kurt Cobain took his own life in 1994 after battling heroin addiction.
