Frances Bean Cobain has filed for divorce from her husband of only 21 months.

The daughter of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain split from Isaiah Silva but says that he won't take any of her father's money, reports TMZ.

The former Nirvana frontman's estate is valued at $450 million (€400m), and Frances' divorce docs include a warning that he should not even think about making a money grab.

However, the documents do read that she will pay the 31-year-old spousal support.

The pair were officially married in secret in June 2014, but only celebrated the union with friends last September.

However, despite one relationship ending, Frances seems to be reconciling with her mother after their very difficult past. 


Pianos, guitars, masks, clothing and… em, fake teeth, were among the items being auctioned at the Idols & Icons: Rock and Roll Auction in LA last weekend. 

The collection of ridiculously-rare items were collected by Julien's Auctions, 'the auction house to the stars.'

The teeth up for grabs were worn by Michael Jackson in Thriller and the instruments were among those used by John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Elvis Presley and Nancy Wilson.

There was also the mask that Lady Gaga wore in her Bad Romance video. 

But most notable, was Kurt Cobain's cardigan, worn in the 1993 MTV Unplugged performance that won a bid of more than €128,000.

The green mohair cardigan is an item that many fans say defined Kurt as he wore it during one of Nirvana's best live shows. The Grammy-winning performance was one of the band's final performances before Kurt's tragic suicide in 1994. 

Other major bids on the weekend included John Lennon's acoustic Gibson J-160E quitar, that sold for €2.2m. three times the estimated bid.



For years, singer Courtney Love has denied allegations that she used heroin while pregnant with her daughter Frances Bean.

Courtney, widow of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, has now admitted that the claims are in fact true.

Back in 1992, a Vanity Fair writer slated Courtney in an article, saying she had openly used heroin during her pregnancy. At the time, a statement from Kurt and Courtney strongly denied this was the case, saying their main priority was to have a "healthy baby."

The two stars temporarily lost custody of Frances as a result of the controversy, and Courtney even blamed Vanity Fair writer Lynn Hirschberg for Kurt's eventual suicide in 1994

However almost 23 years later, Courtney has revealed the allegations were valid. Speaking in a new documentary about Kurt Cobain which premiered at the Sundance Film Fesitval this week, Courtney said, "I used it once then stopped. I knew she would be fine."

The documentary's director Brett Morgen said he was keen to include the admission in the film as the original controvsery had affected Kurt's life so much. "Yeah, they were junkies but they weren't hurting anyone, and the article really had a huge effect on Kurt’s psyche," said Brett. "I don’t think he ever recovered from it, because they took his child away."



As Frances Bean Cobain strolled around the Coachella festival with her fiancé Isaiah Silva, it was hard to miss a certain uncanny resemblance.

The likeness between Isaiah and Frances’ late father, Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain, is pretty striking and the couple reportedly got a lot of attention from fans at the Californian festival and were approached by revellers all weekend to point out the resemblance.

Frances Bean and Isaiah, who is also the front man of a rock band – The Rambles – started dating in early January 2010 and their engagement was announced in October 2011.

Kurt – who tragically died in 1994 at age 27 – was recently inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

But 21-year-old Frances Bean – who filed a restraining order against her mother Courtney in 2009 and moved in with her maternal grandmother – failed to make an appearance.



Is this the greatest TV commercial ever?
