Frances Bean Cobain Makes A LOT Of Money From Her Father’s Estate

GettyImages-470595966Francis Bean Cobain, daughter of Nirvana’s legendary Kurt Cobain, is currently dealing with a public and fairly nasty divorce. Her husband, Isaiah Silvia, is attempting to win half the couple’s assets as they never entered into a prenuptial agreement. Silvia has gone so far as to take one of Cobain’s prized guitars from the home, claiming it was a wedding gift to the couple.

Court filings have revealed Cobain to have an estate worth over $11 million. In addition, she earns monthly revenues derived from rights she holds to Nirvana’s music. Despite her father’s position in the band and the continuing income that supports a lavish lifestyle—she reportedly spends in excess of $200,000 a month,—Cobain is not a fan: "I don't really like Nirvana that much. Sorry, promotional people, Universal. I'm more into Mercury Rev, Oasis, Brian Jonestown Massacre."
