Frances Bean lost Kurt Cobain's guitar in her divorce settlement

Frances Bean lost Kurt Cobain's guitar in her divorce settlement

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.

Having researched Kurt's death for years and even hosting a public access TV show about it, Lee sought access to the pictures under Washington State's Public Records Act.

Although Frances Bean's divorce from Isaiah Silva was finalized last November, the question of the ownership of Kurt's 1959 Martin D-18E had still not been determined until now.

The daughter of Kurt Cobain is no longer the owner of the acoustic guitar the late Nirvana frontman used in the band's iconic 1993 appearance on "MTV Unplugged".

Kurt Cobain's only child Frances Bean Cobain appears to be planning a foray into the music world herself.

Frances testified that she "has had to deal with the trauma of his death her entire life" while Courtney also told the court that she still suffers emotionally due to the tragedy. They finally reached a property settlement agreement recently. The model had asked the judge to let her keep the guitar after denying she gave it to Silva as a gift.

Hopefully the end of the divorce proceedings will allow Cobain to move on with her life, but we still can't believe that she had to lose her own father's guitar in the process.

Aside from its monetary value, the guitar is said to be only one of 300 made at the time.

According to The Blast, Cobain's family won the case, ensuring that images from four rolls of film taken at the scene of Kurt Cobain's death 1994 will be sealed from public view.

Back in 2014, Richard Lee sued the city of Seattle to try and get the photos released.

Silva asserts that Frances gifted him the guitar and that he had the instrument among his possessions when she made the application for divorce in March 2016.
