Frances Bean Cobain Loses Historic Nirvana Guitar in Divorce Battle

Adjust Comment Print

KING5-TV [via the Associated Press] reports that the court ruled the photographs exempt from Washington state's Public Records Act on Tuesday (May 15). The Blast reports that images from four rolls of film taken at the scene of the Nirvana frontman's death in 1994 will nearly certainly not be seen by the public.

Unfortunately, that wish has been overturned by a divorce judge.

The acoustic has always been a bone of contention, as Silva has claimed Frances gave him the guitar as a gift - something that was denied by Frances. TheBlast.com, citing court documents, said the marriage was dissolved on November 30, 2017, but that final judgment on the property issue was awaiting conclusion of settlement.

Frances' mother Courtney refuted Isaiah's story at the time, telling TMZ the instrument was "a treasured heirloom of the family".

Kurt Cobain's famous guitar is now in the hands of his daughter Frances Bean Cobain's ex-husband.

She has since made a decision to hand over the guitar as a way of settling the divorce proceedings quickly without a trial.

When does the Premier League transfer window open and close?
The Premier League season is over and it's fair to say some teams fared better than others. All very odd as to why the start date has been given such secret treatment.

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.

According to TMZ, Frances Bean Cobain and ex-husband have been entangled in a messy divorce for the last two years. Silva had previously claimed that Cobain's Martin D-18E from the famed performance was gifted to him by Bean as a wedding present.

The acoustic guitar Kurt Cobain used on MTV's Unplugged in 1993 is said to be worth millions. "We're very close, and Frances never planned on doing that".

Frances isn't walking away from the divorce empty-handed, however.

Frances, for her part, gets to keep the house she and Silva bought together and will not have to pay Silva spousal support.
