Having researched Kurt's death for years and even hosting a public access TV show about it, Lee sought access to the pictures under Washington State's Public Records Act.

Silva has claimed that Frances gave the instrument to him as a wedding gift, something she has denied in the past.

After a two-year legal battle, the iconic guitar Kurt Cobain played during the recording of Nirvana's MTV Unplugged album has gone to Frances Bean Cobain's ex-husband Isaiah Silva.

Despite Cobain's request, a judge ruled that Silva can keep the guitar in the ongoing division of the ex-spouses' assets. The treasured heirloom had been passed through the hands of various family members, and has been loosely appraised as being worth several million dollars.

Courtney Love, Cobain's widow, and daughter Frances Bean Cobain both filed testimonies to keep the photos from being published.

She has since made a decision to hand over the guitar as a way of settling the divorce proceedings quickly without a trial.

Lee appealed the 2015 ruling previous year, prompting Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain to file documents and testify to block Lee's case.

"It's not [Silva's]", she said. Specifically, Silva claimed that Frances gave him the 1959 Martin D-18E to him as a present.

It was allegedly the last one that Kurt Cobain played before his passing.

The appellate court's ruling comes in favor of Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain, who had been seeking a ruling "permanently enjoining the City from disclosing, disseminating, releasing, or distributing any death-scene photographs not previously disclosed". "We're very close, and Frances never planned on doing that". She will not have to pay any spousal support and will also receive the LA house they owned together.
