Isaiah Silva vs Courtney Love Court Case: An Update

Isaiah Silva vs Courtney Love

Isaiah Silva vs Courtney Love Court Case


It has been years since we haven’t heard about Isaiah Silva’s lawsuit versus Courtney Love. Let me refresh your memory. When they were married, Frances Bean Cobain gave Silva one of her famous father’s guitars, the 1959 Martin D-18E he used during the legendary MTV unplugged session, and when they divorced in 2016, Silva kept the guitar. This didn’t please Courtney Love, who claimed her daughter didn’t really mean to give it to him, and that the guitar was ‘not [Silva’s] to take.’

According to Silva, Love asked several people, including Sam Lutfi (Britney Spears’ ex-manager), to recover the guitar. They showed up at Silva’s home in West Hollywood, pounded on his door as if they were the LAPD, and the following scene described by Silva was so brutal that he claimed the men burglarized, robbed, assaulted, sexually battered, kidnapped him, and even attempted to murder him. In May 2018, he sued them and Courtney Love, whom he believes hired the men to do the did. This is a very brief summary of the case, considering that the legal document is a 322-page long lawsuit, but you can read almost the entire Isaiah Silva vs Courtney Love Court Case here.

Last year, the guitar has been sold for $6 million at auction, and if Silva’s name was not mentioned in any article at the time, I do think this was the same guitar. Did Silva cashed the $6 M?

Many fans were hopeful that the lawsuit would bring new evidence around Kurt Cobain’s death as Silva claims in the lawsuit that Kurt Cobain’s mother, Wendy O’Connor, warned him in 2015 ‘that she believed Love to be involved in the alleged suicide of her son.’ This is what this was a big deal. However, this happened about 3 years ago and no one seems to be talking about it anymore. Things have progressed very slowly, especially because of the pandemic but an update was posted yesterday, April 8th, and, unfortunately, things do not look good for the Silva camp. The document says that:

‘There is no appearance on behalf of plaintiff this date’

‘Counsel represent to the court that plaintiff has failed to comply with the 12/4/20 court order regarding email address’

‘The court orders all parties to appear at the next court date. Failure to appear may result in monetary sanctions up to $1,500 pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure Section 177.5’

I have no idea why Silva didn’t show up in court or didn’t give an email address, but it seems that he is representing himself now (thus the required email address), how is he expecting to win against Courtney Love’s lawyers? Maybe he is giving up. We can speculate why he is doing that – an undisclosed settlement? A possible threat? – but it looks like Courtney Love is winning again, it looks like she, once again, will get away from a scabrous situation with an intact reputation.

    Courtney Love winning because he is not able to provide an email address? lmfao. What a hero’s journey….

          What kind of douchebag takes a precious memory from a daughter who lost her Father far too soon? Say what you want about Courtney, Kurt, Nirvana and fame, but Silva is nothing more then a douchebag who stole a special item from a girl who lost her Dad – and then tried to steal her money too. Get a job like the rest of us. I hope karma catches up with him….

        you’re all fucking retards.

      Her family kidnapped and sex trafficked me after I dumped her drug addict deadbeat nephew. His father is a pastor and they molest children (according to his son). Get to know the family and you’ll learn they’re Satanists stealing church money and sex trafficking women through dating sites. #facts They pay off cops and judges.

      • Lola on December 10, 2021 at 3:20 am

        You don’t sound batshit crazy at all…

      • Rebeca on January 13, 2022 at 12:51 am

        Well cps ….child protective services traffics kids and steals them in texas …50 counties guilty of embezzling money from gov. Takes them away 4 no legit reason and looses em in system unable 2 return kids to fit parents who comply

      • Grace Kennedy on February 16, 2022 at 12:59 am

        Authentic Satanists don’t sex traffic women. You haven’t done your homework on Satanism.

        I haven’t seen anything that says Courtney Love has a brother who is a pastor and no mention of her step-sisters being involved in any ministry work. I did see something about her half-brother being educated at a prestigious university and I’ll refrain from revealing any other information but suffice to say, there was nothing at all about a pastor. But then there is a very real possibility that her family does their best to maintain privacy. In any case, Courtney Love is not responsible for the actions of her family.

        I don’t know if you believe those things or if you know you are spouting nonsense. I don’t even know if your accusations are true – though they do sound like the rantings of a mentally ill person. Maybe your experience is real but it didn’t involve Courtney Love’s family. Please seek out a psychologist or psychiatrist to help you sort out some things and there’s potential to feel better.

          Could you sound any more condescending? Jeez.

      • Jeffry on October 17, 2022 at 10:59 pm

        Wow these are serious allegations.

    Wow, so much you left out of here. A judge ordered that the guitar did belong to Silva in 2019. He is the one that auctioned it off. The current court case only pertains to the alleged kidnapping attempt, and has nothing to do with the ownership of the guitar.

    Courtney Love filed a restraining order against Sam Lufti right after the lawsuit was filed against her. Looks like she’s gearing up to throw Lufti and crew under the bus.

  7. "Kurt Cobain" (my stagename) on September 16, 2021 at 3:22 am

    Kurt here. I am IMMORTAL!, the Undead, alive and well!! (Not to scare anyone). I was never seriously suicidal it was all mock. I *shouldnt* love Courtney but still do. I dont know why she ever hated me so fiercly & it hurts that i still love her. I wanted the divorce because she spent *a lot* of time away from me, when she was meant to be my wife! (me not caring about monogamy or anything!) Though when i would ‘run’ from her she’d cancel my bank cards, so hypocritical, something i’d never do to her!! Courtney wanted the bling life, and i would have given her so much more (instead of buying myself a second house) but the money wasnt coming in from Geffen, i was frustrated, and asked Courtney if she would help me to get more of our money, to which she looked at me blankly, inspiring my lyrics (in Heart Shaped Box -)”forever in debt to your priceless advice”. Anyway, i hope one day Courtney will see the love in me, because hate is a terrible disease and i couldnt bear to hurt her, despite her wanting me in rehab and all the BS etc etc etc. Courtney, i love your THE FOOL tattoo too! (But you know I AM The Fool!). Blessed Be, From Kurdt 🙂

    Yet again, strange that he was also found dead on the very same day (April 8th), as mentionwded above.

    • Scott on November 8, 2021 at 6:02 pm

      He died on April 5th, was found on the 8th. Are you saying its weird that the body was found the same day the case was updated?

  9. sharon antz on November 16, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    well you know what they say karma is a bitch and hopefully one day courtney will get whats comeing to her, cause god dont like ugly and here heart is as ugly as it gets!!!

  10. kim on January 3, 2022 at 4:04 am

    thanks for helping frances to fight for Kurts belongings

  11. Petey on February 13, 2022 at 4:44 am

    Glad to see Courtney use all her evil powers to check another piece of shit gold digger. He deserved to get his ass beat. That it was arranged by the wicked witch herself is perverse street justice.

  12. G.Fernandez on February 18, 2022 at 2:26 am

    Funny to se how people let fandom get in the way of what’s right and wrong. Everyone siding against Silva for a gift he recieved. Who the hell will ever know what went on with Kurt and Kourtney??? I will tell u this, when u reach the end of an opiate addiction there are not many ways out and only one seems do-able when ur so beaten and broken by years of addiction u feel u can’t take another step.

  13. Tenzig Norgay on March 4, 2022 at 10:23 pm

    Silva case was settled out of court on March 3rd

  14. My eyes hurt on April 7, 2022 at 7:42 am

    The backgorund on the page makes it almost unreadable. Terrible design

  15. Jayda on May 5, 2022 at 10:02 am

    This is all a lot, I think she killed Kurt. so prob tried to kill the other guy too, who is stopping her?? she is rich, my theory is she paid off the cops and forged his suicide note, it all just does not add up, she is such a trouble maker, I watch the movie soaked in bleach. I hated it, all he did was twist people’s words but Courtney was so sketchy the whole film, and just seems weird, maybe he did kill himself but I know she had something to do with it and if she didn’t well then she is just good and incriminating herself.
