Frances Bean Cobain has filed for divorce from her husband, the Eeries' Isaiah Silva, after only 21 months of marriage, looking to protect her inheritance and citing “irreconcilable differences,” according to court papers.
As reported by People, Cobain, 23, has said Silva should not receive of any of the money she'll inherit from the estate of her late father, Kurt Cobain, which is valued at $450 million. Court papers say any assets from their premarital relationship will be returned to Cobain as separate property, and the inheritance from her dad falls under this category.
Cobain and Silva have always kept their relationship out of the spotlight, although they had been in a relationship for five before getting married June 29, 2014. She is said to be willing to pay spousal support to Silva.
Another notable event surrounding the wedding of Cobain and Silva was that mother Courtney Love wasn’t invited. The wedding was reported to be small, with only about 15 guests in attendance.
Following the wedding, a source told E! News: “Courtney loves Isaiah, but was devastated that Frances had gotten married without her knowing. Courtney really likes Isaiah and is very happy for Frances. Courtney is sad she wasn’t at the wedding.”
The source added that, “Frances called her after, but Courtney understands why she did it. Frances needs a man in her life and has always craved stability. She’s found it in Isaiah. This has not caused a rift between mom and daughter. Courtney was sad, but she’s cool and Isaiah is a great son-in-law.”
While the wedding had been a surprise for some, Cobain had reportedly been planning the event for over a year.
