Frances Bean Cobain forced to give up dad Kurt's guitar in divorce

Frances Bean Cobain Cruel twist in Frances Bean Cobain’s divorce

Court documents state that the photographs depict "Cobain's body as it lay in the family residence after he was shot in the head", according to a report by The Blast on Monday (May 14th). The Blast reports that images from four rolls of film taken at the scene of the Nirvana frontman's death in 1994 will nearly certainly not be seen by the public.

As TMZ report, Bean has settled her divorce to Isaiah Silva but has somehow managed to lose the guitar.

The acoustic guitar that late Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain played at the infamous 1993 MTV Unplugged session is now in the hands of his daughter's ex-husband.

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

The rightful owner of the guitar has been a major point of contention throughout the two years of divorce proceedings.

"It's not [Silva's]", she said. Silva claimed that Frances gave the 1959 Martin D-18E to him as a present, while Frances denied ever gifting the instrument to him.

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

Lee appealed the ruling previous year, in which Courtney Love (Cobain's widow) and his daughter Frances Bean both filed documents and testified to block Lee's case. It is also supposedly the last one Kurt played before his passing and was reportedly meant to stay within the family.

Courtney Love, Frances' mom, previously told TMZ when asked about Silva's claims to the instrument, "It's not his to take".

"We're very close, and [Frances Bean] never planned on doing that".

Frances isn't walking away from the divorce empty-handed, however.

Frances will get to keep the home they purchased while together and Silva will have to pay his own legal bills.
