Kurt Cobain's Daughter Loses Nirvana 'MTV Unplugged' Guitar In Divorce Settlement

Kurt Cobain of Nirvana performs in 1993 in Seattle. The Washington State Court of Appeals has ruled that

"It's not his to take", Cobain's mother Courtney Love famously told TMZ as divorce proceedings took a turn for the worse.

She has since made a decision to hand over the guitar as a way of settling the divorce proceedings quickly without a trial.

The divorce might be finally settled, but Frances Bean Cobain had to make one huge sacrifice. In addition to its high sentimental value for Cobain, the guitar is said to be worth millions.

It has also been reported that Isaiah will have to fund his own legal bills, and ownership of the house they bought has been given to Frances. He was seeking US25k a month.

The Nirvana rocker killed himself at his home in Seattle at the age of just 27 in April 1994, and Richard has been looking into his death for more than two decades.

Lee lost his original suit in 2015, but appealed the decision through the courts after arguing that photographs and documents he requested could be released via the Public Records Act.

The Pulse Of Radio asked Cobain biographer Charles R. Cross a while back why he thought the conspiracy theories lingered on.

In her declaration, Love said that that public disclosure of Cobain's dead body would "reopen all my old wounds, and cause me and my family permanent-indeed, endless and needless-pain and suffering, and would be a gross violation of our privacy interests".

This particular case has a lot of back-story - Lee lost his original lawsuit against the city of Seattle concerning the photographs in 2015, and filed an appeal previous year to have that overturned, prompting Cobain's next of kin to have the issue settled once and for all.
