When you think of responsible financial decision-making, Courtney Love definitely shouldn't come to mind -- but this is a little staggering even for her. The Hole frontwoman recently told Australia's Sunday Style that following the 1994 suicide of her late husband, Kurt Cobain, she spent upward of $27 million of what she called "Nirvana money" -- mostly to settle a bunch of lawsuits.

"I know that's a lifetime of money to most people," she said. "But I'm a big girl, it's rock 'n' roll, it's Nirvana money, I had to let it go."

She also went on to discuss her current docket of pending lawsuits -- mostly regarding libel. Earlier this year, she won a case against her former lawyer who sought damages after Love tweeted that the attorney had been "bought off" in a fraud case against the executors of Cobain's estate. A judge said Love didn't actively seek to promote false information and ruled in her favor after an eight-day trial.

But don't worry about Love: She certainly doesn't seem too upset about her cash flow. "I make enough to live on," she said. "I'm financially solvent, I focus on what I make now." If you've forgotten all about the fact that Love ever played music, check out the video for her recent single, 'You Know My Name':
