Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of famous Nirvana rocker Kurt Cobain, has filed for divorce from her husband, Isaiah Silva. The couple was married in 2014, but they have been together for five years.
Cobain’s divorce paperwork makes it clear that Kurt Cobain’s fortune belongs solely to Frances. Kurt Cobain’s estate is reportedly valued at $450 million. Even though Frances makes it clear that Isaiah should not attempt to make a claim to her father’s money, she is open to paying him spousal support. The couple does not have children, so child support is not an issue.
Kurt Cobain was the lead singer for the 90s grunge band Nirvana. Krist Novaselic was the band’s bassist and Dave Grohl was the drummer. Grohl is the current frontman for the Foo Fighters. Nirvana sold more than 75 million records, which makes them one of the best-selling bands of all time. Kurt Cobain suffered from depression and drug abuse. In 1994, the 27 year old committed suicide.
According to People, as Frances’s relationship with Isaiah falls apart, she is rebuilding her relationship with her mother, Courtney Love. They were estranged for approximately six years when Kurt’s mother, Wendy, and his sister, Kimberly, were given temporary guardianship of Frances. Courtney was known for trying to reach out to Frances through social media and during interviews, but their relationship only began to improve recently. In fact, Love was not invited to Frances’s wedding to Isaiah.
Courtney and Frances are “on really great terms at the moment,” the People source reveals. “Courtney wants the best for Frances and is hoping this will be a clean and straightforward divorce process.” Love and Cobain were most recently seen enjoying a night out together at the “Women In Creativity” event in London on March 21.
