Kurt Cobain’s iconic guitar is reportedly now in the hands of his daughter’s ex-husband.
After a bitter two-year battle over the famed instrument, Frances Bean Cobain has agreed to let ex Isaiah Silva have the famed 1959 Martin D-18E guitar, according to TMZ. Silva has claimed that Frances gave the instrument to him as a wedding gift, something she has denied in the past.
Last January, Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s 25-year-old daughter asked the court to force Silva to give up the guitar seen on “MTV Unplugged,” with a source telling us at the time: “Of course, her priority would be to have it returned, but as we [wait for] the court to make a ruling, she would like a third party to have it.”
Now, it looks like she lost the guitar — but also got off the hook for spousal support — in their settlement.
Frances filed for divorce from Isaiah in 2016 — just two years after their secret summer wedding.
