I am a truly gullible person re: substance abuse. Unless someone with an addiction formally announces “I HAVE FALLEN OFF THE WAGON” (which, um…rarely happens), I just assume they’re still sober. Yep, real sharp. Take Courtney Love. Even after all that Sam Lufti restraining order drama, the saga of Frances Bean’s ex and the guitar, and possibly ordering is MURDER (?!?!), I was still like, “Well, shit, at least my girl’s still off the bad stuff”. So color me shocked when, last fall, Courtney admitted she had relapsed into opioid addiction in 2018.
Courtney Love has just written another verse to The Ballad Of The Sad Guitar. According to TMZ, Courtney’s just been granted a restraining order against one-time BFF and manager Sam Lutfi. Possibly related (read definitely related), the two are both currently being sued by Francis Bean’s ex-husband Isaiah Silva who claims that Courtney, Sam, 13 Reasons Why actor Ross Butler, and two others, conspired to break into his house, beat him up, sexually batter him, and eventually murder him in order to steal his guitar (they only got as far as steps 1, 2 and 3). Now Courtney is claiming that Sam has been “unrelentingly” harassing her and her family.
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.
Frances Bean’s Ex Is Suing Courtney Love For Conspiring To Have A Laundry-List Of Crimes Done To Him
Frances Bean’s ex-husband, Isaiah Silva, is not quite ready to slink back into obscurity despite winning Kurt Cobain’s “Unplugged” guitar in his divorce settlement (and precious little else). According to TMZ, Isaiah has filed a lawsuit against his ex-mother-in-law Courtney Love that accuses her of orchestrating an outlandish conspiracy against him that included burglary, robbery, assault, sexually battery, kidnapping and attempted murder. Which is probably just an average Tuesday night for Courtney, but Isaiah apparently wasn’t into it. And it was all over that GODDAMN GUITAR! Kurt must have put a heckuva hex on that axe.
This will most likely be the last time I ever post a picture of Frances Bean Cobain and Isaiah Silva together, and I’m sure that would suit Frances Bean just fine. Because after years of battling it out over money and guitars, TMZ says she’s finally free of her husband of 21 months. The only downside is he leaves with one of the late Kurt Cobain’s guitars.
25-year-old Frances Bean Cobain is almost divorced. Hooray for her! But sadly, it’s not totally over yet.
Frances got married to Isaiah Silva back in September 2015, and split from him ten months later. Frances and Isaiah’s separation has been messy. Isaiah claimed custody of a guitar that once belonged to Frances’ dad Kurt Cobain. He says Frances gave it to him as a wedding gift, but she denies that and wants it back. Isaiah also tried to come for $300,000 a year in spousal support. At one point, Courtney Love and her pal Sam Lutfi were reportedly involved in Frances’ Not Without My Dad’s Guitar saga.
