KURT COBAIN's Daughter Loses His Famous Guitar In Divorce Settlement

17 May 2018

The couple had been together for roughly five years and married for less than two when Frances chose to file for divorce back in March 2016. Unfortunately, that's the case for Frances Bean Cobain, the only daughter of musician and actor Courtney Love and Nirvana's Kurt Cobain.

Frances Bean Cobain divorced her husband, Isaiah Silva, six months ago, and the pair have fought about ownership of the guitar since mid-2016.

Frances Bean Cobain has come to a property settlement agreement with ex-husband Isaiah Silva, but she lost an iconic piece of her late father's history in the process. Court documents obtained by the press revealed that the 1959 Martin D-18E, which the Nirvana frontman and lyricist used in a performance for MTV's Unplugged in November 1993, will remain in the possession of Silva. In addition to its high sentimental value for Cobain, the guitar is said to be worth millions. Silva's request for $25,000 a month in spousal support was denied, and he also walked away without the house they bought or reimbursement for his legal bills.

Courtney Love, Frances' mom, previously told TMZ when asked about Silva's claims to the instrument, "It's not his to take".

The conspiracy theorist, named Richard Lee, who has researched Cobain's death for 23 years believes the photos would prove Cobain was murdered by government officials and sued the City Of Seattle in 2014 in attempt to have the images released. Lee's suit sought the release of 55 photos from the site to "prove that the Seattle Police Department had active complicity in concocting fraud in the death of one of the most famous people of his generation".

The loss of her father's guitar comes after Frances said she hoped the "In Bloom" singer would be proud of the person she has become.
