Frances Bean Cobain’s legal battle with her estranged husband Isaiah Silva over her late father Kurt Cobain’s guitar. Page Six reports:
Silva, a musician in the band the Eeries, claims that in happier times, Frances Bean gave him the guitar — a Martin D-18E with the bridge flipped so that Kurt could play it left-handed — as a wedding present when they secretly married in 2014. It was once insured for $1 million, but experts say it is now likely worth several times that amount.
The article also states:
We’re told that after months of negotiation, Silva is still holding out and — according to Frances Bean’s side — is taking “extreme and unsupportable positions” on the disagreement.
“He is forcing the matter to litigation,” we’re told. Meanwhile, sources close to the struggle say it ended in a deadlock, and Frances Bean is ready to take the matter in front of a judge.
An insider tells us, “In September, a judge ordered Frances Bean to pay Silva $15,000 a month in spousal support as part of an interim settlement while they worked out the guitar issue through mediation.”
Reps for an attorney for Silva didn’t get back to us.
