Kurt Cobain's daughter Frances Bean has been fighting a two-year legal battle against her ex-husband Isaiah Silva over the guitar her father played for Nirvana's MTV Unplugged in 1993.

The 329-page document alleges that on the morning of 3 June 2016, Lutfi, Butler and another man, Yan Yukhtman, "entered into a criminal conspiracy to commit trespass, burglary, home invasion robbery, assault, battery, kidnapping, and murder" to try and recover Cobain's guitar.

He says Lutfi provided narcotics and illicit benzodiazepines to Frances and Courtney.

Love's co-defendants in the suit make the whole case even more surreal, with her business manager Sam Lufti - the former manager of Britney Spears who became infamous when her family claimed he was puppet mastering her off a cliff, and then he sued Spears for defamation - and 13 Reasons Why star Ross Butler both named as co-conspirators.

The 1959 Martin D-18E, believed to be the last guitar Kurt Cobain played prior to his 1994 suicide, was a point of contention in the divorce between Cobain and Silva.

Metro says that decision "will be made in the next week" with Chelsea expected to part company with their Italian manager. According to Sky Italy , Chelsea had reached a deal "in principle" with him to succeed Antonio Conte .

Silva says he and his mother were hurt by the alleged incident.

Lutfi is said to have pounded on the locked bedroom door while Butler and Yukhtman repeatedly yelled, "police open up!" and "LAPD!" Silva claims Lufti grabbed his genitals and told him: "Calm the fuck down or drag you upstairs and take turns fucking you".

Frances is the only child of Love and Kurt, who were married from 1992 until the Nirvana rocker's death in 1994.

Silva was married to Frances from 2014 until their divorce was finalized past year. He also claims that Nazarian and Schenk "did assault and cause physical injury to Silva's mother while in Silva's presence and with the intent of terrorizing and intimidating Silva". Lufti was previously accused kidnapping and robbing Silva in 2016. He is seeking unspecified damages.
