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

On April 21, 2016, Love filed a declaration accusing Lee of trying to exploit Cobain's death and claiming Lee has "stalked and harassed me, my family, and my friends for many, many years ..."

She has since chose to hand over the guitar as a way of settling the divorce proceedings quickly without a trial. Court documents obtained by the press revealed that the 1959 Martin D-18E, which the Nirvana frontman and lyricist used in a performance for MTV's Unplugged in November 1993, will remain in the possession of Silva.

The acoustic has always been a bone of contention, as Silva has claimed Frances gave him the guitar as a gift - something that was denied by Frances. Originally given to her for safekeeping, the guitar is thought to be worth millions of dollars.

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.

The court of appeals ruled in favour of Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, and daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, who had sought a ruling "permanently enjoining the City from disclosing, disseminating, releasing, or distributing any death-scene photographs not previously disclosed", the Blast reports. In 2014, one such theorist, Richard Lee, sued the city of Seattle over the sealed status of images taken at the scene, believing that Cobain was killed by government officials. "You know, the bottom line is there's absolutely no evidence to suggest that Kurt's death was anything other than suicide, and it's nearly absurd that the topic continues to come up".
