Kurt Cobain’s Mom Allegedly Reveals Who She Believes Was ‘Involved’ In Death


Billboard have up a new article summarizing details from Frances Bean Cobain’s ex-husband Isaiah Silva’s lawsuit alleging that Courtney Love tried to have him murdered to get back Kurt Cobain’s guitar. Below is an excerpt from Billboard’s article:

Shortly after midnight on June 3, 2016, according to the lawsuit, Sam Lutfi, Ross Butler and Yan Yukhtman broke into Silva’s house and tried to enter his bedroom — where he had been watching a movie with a friend — claiming they were the police. Lutfi allegedly yelled at and threatened the friend, telling him to leave, before Butler and Yukhtman pushed him out of the house. Following some struggling, the documents continue, Silvia was overpowered and then threatened to calm down by Lutfi “grabbing Silva’s genitals through his pants, and whispered to Silva, ‘Listen f—-t, calm the fuck down or we’ll drag you upstairs and take turns fucking you.’ In fear for his life, Silva tried to appear calm and cooperative. However, he claims, Lutfi, Butler and Yukhtman continued to threaten him and physically removed Silva from his Curson Avenue residence against his will,” forcing him into the back seat of a Cadillac Escalade outside and driving off.

Silva’s friend had been outside calling 9-1-1 from his car and was able to drive ahead of the Escalade, blocking its way on the narrow canyon road trying to prevent Silva’s captors from getting away, the suit claims. When police arrived in cars and a helicopter overhead, Silva claims Lutfi “hurriedly concocted a false story intended to prevent LAPD from arresting them” and threatened the lives of Silva’s family — including his 7-year-old daughter Arlo — if he didn’t go along with it. “In shock and fearing for his life and the lives of his family and daughter,” Silva agreed to go along with Lutfi’s story that they were old college friends and the kidnapping had been a prank.

The lawsuit also several times tries to draw parallels between the allegedly false narrative Love and her cohorts attempted to establish around Silva with the often-speculated upon death of Kurt Cobain. Silva claims that Kurt Cobain’s mother Wendy O’Connor confided in him that she was “keenly aware of the disturbing correlations between his circumstances and those of O’Connor’s late son.” She also said that she “believed Love to be involved in the alleged suicide of her son, Kurt Cobain.”
