According to the Hollywood Reporter, the 'Doll Parts' singer will resolve her legal dispute with Simorangkir by making installment payments to the designer through 2014. Simorangkir filed a lawsuit against Love in Los Angeles Superior Court in March of 2009 alleging defamation after the troubled rocker carried out "an obsessive and delusional crusade."
In her Tweets, Love called the designer a "drug-pushing prostitute with a history of assault and battery." Elsewhere, Love wrote, "She has received a VAST amount of money from me over 40,000 dollars and I do not make people famous and get raped TOO!" Love has since quit using Twitter.
"The amount of the settlement says it all," Simorangkir's attorney, Bryan Freedman, told THR. "Her reprehensible defamatory comments were completely false and $430,000 is quite a significant way to say I am sorry. One would hope that, given this disaster, restraint of pen, tongue and tweet would guide Ms. Love's future conduct."
Love's attorney, James Janowitz countered by saying he was pleased with what he called "a modest settlement," adding, "They got out with an amount that left them bragging rights but nothing else."
