COURTNEY LOVE ACCUSED IN MURDER PLOT OVER A GUITAR
Courtney Love has been accused of plotting to have her daughter’s ex-husband killed in a bid to retrieve a guitar that belonged to Kurt Cobain. Isaiah Silva, a musician, was married to Frances Bean Cobain, the only child of Love, pictured, and Cobain, from 2014 to 2016. Under the terms of their divorce, Silva was entitled to keep a 1959 Martin D-18E guitar that the Nirvana frontman played during an MTV Unplugged performance in 1993, reportedly worth millions. Silva, 33, alleges that Love, her manager Sam Lutfi, Britney Spears’s former manager, and a group of men attempted to kidnap and kill him in 2016 to get the guitar back. He filed a civil suit in a Los Angeles court seeking unspecified damages. Love and her co-defendants are yet to comment on Silva’s allegations.
