Nirvana's Famous MTV Unplugged Guitar Has Been Awarded To France's Beans Ex!

Kurt and Francis Bean Cobain

The photos in question, according to court documents, show "Kurt Cobain's body as it lay in the family residence after he was shot in the head".

Unfortunately, that wish has been overturned by a divorce judge.

TMZ reported that Silva has won ownership of the famous guitar that Frances's father, late NIRVANA frontman Kurt Cobain, played on the band's classic episode of "MTV Unplugged". The treasured heirloom had been passed through the hands of various family members, and has been loosely appraised as being worth several million dollars.

The couple had been together for roughly five years and married for less than two when Frances chose to file for divorce back in March 2016. They finally reached a property settlement agreement recently.

After five years of dating, Frances married Silva back 2014 in a secret summer wedding attended by close friends. Silva will now get to keep the guitar in the final settlement. Specifically, Silva claimed that Frances gave him the 1959 Martin D-18E to him as a present.

Hopefully the end of the divorce proceedings will allow Cobain to move on with her life, but we still can't believe that she had to lose her own father's guitar in the process.

She said: "I don't have an answer for that because I don't want to speak on someone else's behalf".

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.

Frances isn't walking away from the divorce empty-handed, however.

He will also have to pay for his own legal bills, despite hoping his ex would pay for them.
