Ross Butler Claims He’s Innocent Of Conspiring With Courtney Love To Murder Francis Bean’s Ex-Husband
Kurt Cobain‘s poor beleaguered guitar is in the news again. According to Page Six, Courtney Love’s young friend Ross Butler has responded to a lawsuit filed by Frances Bean’s shifty ex-husband Isaiah Silva claiming he did not enter into any kind of conspiracy to shake down or murder Isaiah. You may recall that the guitar Kurt played during his legendary appearance on MTV’s Unplugged was at the center of the drawn out divorce between Frances and Isaiah. The guitar was the only thing Isaiah got out of the divorce settlement, and earlier this year he filed a lawsuit against Courtney and several “accomplices”, including Ross and Sleazeball legend Sam Lutfi, for conspiring to break into his house with the intent to murder him and steal his precious guitar (the lawsuit claims “burglary, sexual battery and attempted murder”), all while this poor guitar was probably cowering in the corner, gently weeping.
Ross is a 28-year-old actor who has appeared in 13 Reasons Why and Riverdale. He’s also pals with Courtney, for what I’m sure are very good and wholesome reasons. He doesn’t deny that he was at Isaiah’s house on the night in question, but denies any bad intentions.
In documents, obtained by The Blast, Butler asked for the lawsuit against him to be dismissed, claiming, “I never entered into a conspiracy or otherwise agreed to commit any crime against Silva. I never conspired with anyone else to murder or kidnap Silva … or take possession of a guitar that Silva claims Ms. Cobain gave to him as a gift.”
Ross says that Isaiah’s got it all twisted; he and Sam just went over there to check on him because they were worried!
Butler says he and Lutfi went over to Silva’s on the night in question because Lutfi was concerned about Frances and Isaiah who weren’t responding to text messages. Butler added that Silva invited them into the home.
Ross also says that he never communicated with Courtney at any time during the “purported events”. It’s a sad day when you can’t just drop in and check on your friends without getting slapped with a lawsuit. Next time my much older gal pal’s alleged drug dealer (Lutfi, per suit) asks me to pretend to be a cop (also, per suit) to do a wellness check on a guy, I’m going to have to think twice. And I think Ross should too.
