Frances Bean Cobain’s ex-husband, Isaiah Silva, is suing Courtney Love for attempted murder. Silva claims that Love conspired with manager Sam Lutfi, “13 Reasons Why” star Ross Butler, private investigator John Nazarian and musician Michael Schenk, “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.” Silva is also alleging that they engaged in burglary, robbery, sexual battery, criminal threats, false imprisonment, extortion, stalking intentional infliction of emotional distress, and trespass. The guitar in question is a 1959 Martin D-18E from Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged session from 1993. It is rumored to be the last guitar Cobain played before his April 1994 suicide. Frances and Isaiah were married in 2014, and divorced in March 2016. Isaiah claims that Frances gave him Kurt’s guitar as a gift and said it was part of his divorce settlement.
