Frances Bean Loses Kurt Cobain's Iconic 'MTV Unplugged' Guitar to Ex-Husband

Kurt Cobain's Death

New Kurt Cobain death-scene photos will not be released, court rules

Frances Bean Cobain has lost her late father Kurt Cobain's iconic acoustic guitar famously played during Nirvana's "Unplugged" set in what has become a messy divorce from ex-husband Isaiah Silva.

Throughout the former couple's divorce proceedings, the rightful owner of the guitar had always been a point of dispute and discord. Silva claimed that Frances gave the 1959 Martin D-18E to him as a present, while Frances denied ever gifting the instrument to him.

It was allegedly the last one that Kurt Cobain played before his passing.

Cobain will keep the couple's home and won't pay spousal support to Silva, according to TMZ. He was seeking US25k a month. Lee's suit sought the release of 55 photos from the site to "prove that the Seattle Police Department had active complicity in concocting fraud in the death of one of the most famous people of his generation".

FIFA ARE PLANNING a new 24-club summer tournament that will replace the current Club World Cup and Confederations Cup. It is said that UEFA and the Premier League are "furious" at the idea with a $1b pot shared among the clubs.

The court ruled the photographs are exempt from Washington state's Public Records Act and releasing the photos would "violate the Cobain family's due process rights under the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution".

When asked by if she believes the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" hitmaker would like her musical ventures, Frances said: "I don't have an answer for that because I don't want to speak on someone else's behalf".

Meanwhile, the Washington State Court of Appeals has ruled that photographs from the scene of Cobain's 1994 suicide will not be made public.
