Frances Cobain settles with ex-husband, he gets Kurt Cobain's guitar

Frances Bean Cobain Courtney Love Hug

The couple was finally able to reach a property agreement, according to TMZ, in which the daughter of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain will look one of the musicians prized guitars.

After a two-year legal battle, the iconic guitar Kurt Cobain played during the recording of Nirvana's MTV Unplugged album has gone to Frances Bean Cobain's ex-husband Isaiah Silva.

TMZ are now reporting that Frances has had to relinquish any ownership of Cobain's famed 1959 Martin D-18E guitar to her ex as part of the final divorce settlement. In January 2017, Silva had claimed that she gave him the guitar as a wedding present, which she denied, adding it was a "priceless family heirloom".

Sources told TMZ that the visual artist eventually gave up fighting for the instrument, as "she wanted Isaiah out of her life for good, and didn't want the mess of a trial to bog her down".

While Frances has lost the instrument, she had some success in that she doesn't have to pay spousal support, with Isaiah, 32, originally seeking $25,000 a month.

Frances will get to keep the home they purchased while together and Silva will have to pay his own legal bills.

Frances debuted some of her own music on Instagram recently.
