Frances Bean Cobain's Ex-Husband Sues Courtney Love In Attempted Murder Lawsuit!

Frances Bean Cobain's Ex-Husband Sues Courtney Love In Attempted Murder Lawsuit!

According to Silva, Lutfi was providing Courtney and Frances with illegal drugs including "illicit benzodiazepines", and Butler "acted as a courier for illicit drugs supplied to Love and her daughter" but couldn't be questioned by police "because he fled to Canada".

Frances Bean's ex-husband, Isaiah Silva, is suing Courtney Love claiming she broke into his home, beat him up, kidnapped him and tried to murder him so they could retrieve Kurt Cobain's legendary guitar.

Frances and Silva married in 2014 and filed for divorce a brief 21 months later.

Silva alleged they carried out a range of crimes in the attempt to recover the guitar, including burglary, robber, sexual battery, kidnapping, attempted murder, criminal threats, extortion, emotional distress, trespassing and false imprisonment.

Silva obtained the guitar in his divorce settlement with Francis Bean Cobain.

The Nirvana frontman played the 1959 Martin guitar during the band's MTV Unplugged performance in 1993.

"Isaiah Silva claims in a new lawsuit, in the early hours of June 3, 2016, Sam Lutfi - the one involved in the Britney Spears drama years ago - along with 2 other guys burglarized, robbed, assaulted, sexually battered, kidnapped and attempted to murder him at his West Hollywood Home", TMZ reports. He also claims that Nazarian and Schenk "did assault and cause physical injury to Silva's mother while in Silva's presence and with the intent of terrorizing and intimidating Silva".

They then forced him out of the house and into the back of a black Cadillac Escalade, according to the complaint. No arrests were made because Silva claims Lufti threatened to hurt his daughter if he didn't go along with a story claiming it was all a prank gone awry.

Silva is asking for unspecified damages. The divorce was settled last November, while the dispute over the guitar was sorted out only recently: Silva apparently gave up spousal support in exchange for the guitar.
