Courtney Love has been accused of arranging to have her daughter’s ex-husband mortally wounded in a bid to get a guitar that belonged to Kurt Cobain.
Isaiah Silva, a musician, was married to Frances Bean Cobain, Love and Cobain’s just child, from 2014. Ms Cobain declared divorce in March 2016.
Under any terms of their divorce, Silva has been entitled to keep a highly beneficial 1959 Martin D-18E guitar the Nirvana frontman competed during an MTV ‘Unplugged’ performance during 1993.
During the divorce proceedings, Skip Cobain had argued the guitar need to remain in her family, although Silva successfully claimed it was his particular as she had given it to him as a gift.
Now Silva (33) features alleged that Love, her manager Sam Lutfi – Britney Spears’s old manager – and a group of gentlemen attempted to kidnap and kill the pup in June 2016 to get the acoustic guitar back.
He filed a 329-page municipal suit in a Los Angeles courtroom seeking unspecified damages. He professed: “The primary objective of their fringe movement was to locate and acquire possession of a guitar believed to be well worth millions of dollars, which was gifted for you to Silva, by Frances, on January 6, 2014, six months prior to their Summer marriage.”
He alleged Mr Lutfi and 2 other men “did burglarise, rob, assault, batter, sexually hitter, kidnap, and attempt to murder” him at his / her house in West The movies.
According to the complaint, men along at the door shouted: “Police, start.” and “LAPD, open the door.” Silva believed that once inside, Mr Lutfi got his genitals through the clothes.
He claimed the men were going to kidnap him to end any legal claims he was making for spousal support, and to get the acoustic guitar back.
The trio allegedly pressured him out of his property and into a black Cadillac Escalade while a friend called the law enforcement officials.
When they arrived, Mr Lutfi “hurriedly concocted a false story intended to prevent LAPD by arresting them”.
Love and her co-defendants are looked as ready to fight “all the way” over the allegations.
