Kurt Cobain’s Daughter Finalizes Divorce, Did She Get Guitar Back?

TMZ reports that Frances Bean Cobain has settled her divorce with Isaiah Silva, and the major bone of contention — Kurt Cobain’s famous acoustic guitar — goes to him.

TMZ has learned the former couple finally reached a property settlement agreement, 6 months after their divorce became final.

Our sources say, Frances decided she wanted Isaiah out of her life for good, and didn’t want the mess of a trial to bog her down. What’s more, she was only 1 year old when her dad died by suicide, so it’s not like she had lots of memories about the 1959 Martin D-18E.

We’re told she knows her decision may piss off lots of Nirvana fans, but it’s her life and she wants to move on.

Frances actually did great in the divorce. We’ve learned she will not have to pay Isaiah a penny in spousal support — he wanted $25k a month. He has to foot his own legal bills and she gets the house they bought.

The 25-year-old daughter of Kurt and Courtney Love is sober, has a boyfriend and is looking forward.

As for the guitar, it’s super iconic because Kurt played it during Nirvana’s famous “MTV Unplugged” set.

    This guy seems like such a parasitic creep. Glad she’s rid of him though.

    I was hoping she would get it back. He is probably going to sell it anyway. Never date/marry someone who wear and B and B shirt.

    • Corndog

      Should she get it back though? I mean if he took it without her consent, then sure, she should have it back, but if on the other hand she gave it to him fair and square then it is now his property and she no longer has any rights to it. You can’t go around giving people things and then changing your mind down the road and expecting them to just give them back.

      That’s my take on it anyway. Whether or not she should get it back depends entirely on the circumstances upon which he came by it in the first place.

      • Kay B

        No she shouldn’t get it back. It was a gift. I know she didn’t have a relationship with her dad but if it was me, I still would have kept it. I think he will probably end up selling it. I mean I’m married and my shit is still my shit. If it’s important I don’t give it away. Which in reality, it seems like she really doesn’t care about it. I was just hoping the guy would take into account that it was the last instrument her father played and it was customized to him. But he is walking away with no spousal support so this is the way to get money. My dad gave my husband a rifle that was the same make as the rifle that killed JFK. my dad gave it to him on his death bed. I would never ask for it back because it was my dad who died. And it was a gift. But I also don’t care about guns/rifles.

        • Corndog

          Yeah that is pretty much how i would feel about it. I mean sure, he could have taken the higher moral ground and given it back to her because it was her fathers ETC, but who knows what went on behind closed doors? For all we know she could have treated him horrendously and he could be thinking that the guitar is the one thing that he got out of the whole marriage that was worth a damn. If it had been that important to her then she should not have given it away in the first place. As you say, she should have kept it. I imagine that he is going to sell it too, but given that it is his property he is fully entitled to.

          I’m glad that he isn’t getting any spousal support. It’s not like he is looking after any children, and he is perfectly capable of getting a job and supporting himself. In fact wasn’t he in a band or something?

          I think that whole system needs to be overhauled at as i don’t think that someone should automatically be entitled to money just because the person they are divorcing is worth more than they are. If they are young enough and well enough to support themselves and there are no children involved then i don’t think they should get anything at all beyond splitting any shared assets. Seriously, what the hell was he going to do with 25 grand a month? Cheeky fecker!

            Agree. No kids. Why do you need the support? I am suddenly reminded of when I moved out of state to be with someone. This was about 20 yrs ago. Well long story short I ended up being really lonely in the relationship because he was frequenting the strip clubs. So I went to the pound and there was this black kitten there and he grabbed my arm with his paw as I walked by. Now I don’t like cats that much but I felt compelled to ask about him. Well they said they were going to put him down the next day because he wasn’t eating and had this horrible lung infection…ect. So I said well just give me a chance. So I take this thing home and I give him saline injections and meds all this shit. He finally starts eating weeks later. Well my boyfriend and I ended up breaking up due to him not being home and his running around and he asked me to keep the cat with him. I was moving back to my home town never to return. I said are you fauqing kidding me? I paid the vet bills, I got him well, he picked ME out…..I was like what the fauq? Well here I am 20 yrs later and I still have this damn cat. His vision isn’t great and he walks slow, but he is still kickin…..But there was no way in hell I was just going to give him up. He was like a kid to me…..Now I can’t get rid of him! And he is so damn vocal….meow…meow…MEOW!!!

            That’s a real nice story about the cat! I love cats! I’m glad that you managed to nurse him back to health and that you told your ex where to go when he asked for him. It’s really great that he’s still around too. I’ve never known a cat that lived that long. You must have taken very good care of him for him to reach such an advanced age:)

            One of my husband’s and my cats was nineteen when she passed away.

            She was just one month away from her twentieth birthday.

            And like her companion cat (a boy), I miss them both like crazy.

          • Corndog

            It really is like loosing a family member when a pet dies. I swore that i would never have another dog after my last one died. He was a wee pug. Pain in the ass, but cute as a button:)

          • Olga Stewart

            Yes, pets are like family members.

            And your pug sounds like he was a bit of a mischief maker. :).

          • Corndog

            Oh he really was a right wee bugger. Totally melted your head and you’d swear he was doing it on purpose! Hard to stay angry at something so cute though.

          • Olga Stewart

            Ha ha!

          • Kay B

            Thank you. I honestly think this cat is an anomaly. He was getting really skinny last year and his fur was looking crappy so we took him to the vet. I thought we were going to have to put him down. Well the vet said it was his thyroid so they gave us meds for him and now his fur is soft again and he has gained a little weight. Still skinny though. But I was like you have to be kidding me….

          • Olga Stewart

            You are welcome. :).

            And cats can and do surprise you.

          • Corndog

            Sounds like a real wee fighter! Good on him:)

          • Olga Stewart

            That cat of yours is a scrapper. :).

          • Olga Stewart

            I am so very happy that you rescued that cat. :).

            And like Corndog, I also love cats.

          • Olga Stewart

            I would give the 25 grand to you so that you could use it to both buy out where you work and get rid of those idiot Taylor Swift listening coworkers. Hee hee.

          • Corndog

            Strangely, the radio has been off for the last 2 days. I’m afraid to say anything in case i jinx it. It’s deathly quiet in here today!

          • Olga Stewart

            All right! :).

  • Olga Stewart

    Francis, be smart this time around.

    Don’t give another belonging of your dad’s to anyone else.

    Keep it for yourself.
