Frances Bean Cobain loses her father's famous Unplugged guitar in divorce settlement

Kurt Cobain 16/05/2018

Kurt Cobain's only child, Frances Bean Cobain has been struggling through a messy divorce. Now, her ex Isaiah Silva is officially taking her father's famous MTV Unplugged guitar. 

The rightful owner of the iconic instrument has been a massive obstacle in the divorce proceedings - Silva claims Frances gave him the guitar as a present. Frances has vehemently denied these claims. 

Their property settlement has dragged out for two long years, now the 25-year-old is willing to give up the guitar in hopes of finally moving on.

Money aside, (it's thought to be worth millions) the 1959 Martin D-18E holds a massive amount of sentimentality for Frances and her mother Courtney Love - it's the last guitar Kurt played before he killed himself, and one of only 300 that were made before the model was discontinued.  

A holy grail of Cobain's legacy if you will.

Courtney Love told previously that it's not his to take. We're inclined to agree. 

Frances has been writing original music as of late. It seems a little cooked to us that she won't be the one plucking the strings of her Father's iconic Martin. 

On the upside, Frances gets to keep the house she and Silva bought together. And she doesn't have to pay a cent in spousal support - Silva was gunning for 25k a month from Cobain. 

So, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  

Now, Frances is in a new and healthy relationship with The Ceremonies guitarist Matthew Cook, AND she's recently celebrated two years sober.

Relinquishing her father's guitar may sound like a betrayal to die-hard Nirvana fans - but it looks like ol' mate has been hanging around in Frances Bean's life like a bad smell.  

Seeya later Isaiah Silva. Onwards and upwards for the princess of grunge.
