Frances Bean Loses Kurt Cobain's Iconic 'MTV Unplugged' Guitar to Ex-Husband

The TMZ report further claims that Frances "wants to move on" from the divorce, even if that means giving up the guitar and everything attached to it.

Kurt Cobain's daughter Frances Bean Cobain has reportedly lost her father's iconic MTV Unplugged guitar to her ex-husband.

Throughout the former couple's divorce proceedings, the rightful owner of the guitar had always been a point of dispute and discord. 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. Originally given to her for safekeeping, the guitar is thought to be worth millions of dollars.

It was allegedly the last one that Kurt Cobain played before his passing.

The settlement did grant Frances sole ownership of the couple's property, and also saw Isaiah denied a request for US$25,000 spousal support per month. He was seeking US25k a month.

Photographs from the scene of Kurt Cobain's suicide will never be released, a court has ruled in Seattle.

Holmes added: "As a member of Washington State's Sunshine Committee, I regularly advocate to open more records for public access, but out of respect to family members, I continue to believe releasing images of a person's scene of death is out of bounds".

"It's not [Isaiah's] to take", Love said.

On April 21, 2016, Love filed a declaration accusing Lee of trying to exploit Cobain's death and claiming Lee has "stalked and harassed me, my family, and my friends for many, many years ..." Lee, described as a "conspiracy theorist" in court documents, has independently researched Cobain's death for years, propogating the theory that Cobain was in fact murdered.
