FRANCES BEAN COBAIN's Ex-Husband Sues COURTNEY LOVE; Claims She Tried To Kill Him To Get KURT's Guitar Back

Frances Bean Cobain's ex-husband Isaiah Silva is suing Frances's mother, Courtney Love, according to People. Silva claims that Love "entered into a conspiracy with several people to break into his home, beat him up, kidnap him and try to murder him so they could gain possession of Kurt Cobain's legendary guitar."

According to The Pulse Of Radio, the guitar in question is the acoustic guitar that Cobain played at NIRVANA's "MTV Unplugged" session in 1994. Silva won possession of it as part of the divorce settlement with Frances, claiming that she gave him her father's guitar as a gift, while Frances attempted to get it back, calling it a "priceless family heirloom."

Silva's lawsuit alleges that in the early hours of June 3, 2016, one-time Britney Spears manager Sam Lutfi and two other men burglarized, robbed, assaulted, sexually battered, kidnapped and attempted to murder him at his West Hollywood Home.

Silva claims that the men were masquerading as police, saying that Lutfi grabbed his genitals, called him a homophobic slur and threatened to rape him. Both he and his mother were injured in the incident. Silva is also claiming that Lutfi supplied Love and Frances with drugs. He is seeking unspecified damages.

Frances and Silva were married in 2014 and she filed for divorce 21 months later. The divorce was settled last November, but the battle over the guitar was settled just a few weeks ago, with Silva reportedly giving up spousal support in exchange for the guitar.

The instrument, a 1959 Martin D-18E, is believed to be the last guitar Kurt Cobain played before his April 1994 suicide.
