Love's late husband Kurt Cobain, who committed suicide in 1994, was Nirvana's lead singer.
A five-page lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court Tuesday by the L.A.-based London & Co. claims Love sold a portion of Cobain's share of Nirvana's publishing catalog for $19.5 million, the Associated Press reports.
London & Co. alleges Love, 44, broke a verbal contract to share five percent of any of her earnings or those from her company, The End of Music, and that its share from the sale would have been $975,000.
Reps for Love did not respond to AP's requests for comment.
