The 'Nevermind' baby is still suing Nirvana

Our News 14/01/2022

We can't believe this dude is still trying to sue Nirvana.

If you missed it - last year, the now-grown-up baby on Nirvana's 'Nevermind' album cover, Spencer Elden, filed a lawsuit against the band alleging that the ‘nude’ image of himself is child pornography.

Last week, the case was thrown out for many reasons, including the fact that Elden allegedly didn’t meet a deadline to respond to the motion.

Now, as reported by Rolling Stone, Elden has filed a second amended complaint to reinstate the claims. In this, he's dropped the claim related to sex-trafficking, but he's doubled down on his other claims.

These claims include alleging that Nirvana, as well as others involved in the album photoshoot, "intentionally commercially marketed the child pornography depicting Spencer and leveraged the lascivious nature of his image to promote the Nevermind album, the band, and Nirvana’s music, while earning, at a minimum, tens of millions of dollars in the aggregate."

Elden's lawyer also has artwork that is allegedly the original mock-up of the 'Nevermind' cover. In the artwork, there's a different naked baby with no genitalia being shown. Elden is claiming that this proves Nirvana deliberately decided to go in the direction that they did.

Mate, just give up.
