Kurt Cobain Death Photos Will Remain Sealed Following New Court Ruling

Last November Frances filed the official documents to split from the 32-year-old, and reportedly listed her father's estate as her own property separate from any joint ownership she and Isaiah have together.

The instrument in question is a 1959 Martin D-18E acoustic guitar which Kurt famously played during his iconic MTV Unplugged performance in 1993, just months before his death.

Despite losing the prized possession, TMZ reports that Frances won big in the finalisation of the settlement, as she reportedly won't have to pay a penny to Isaiah in spousal support after he originally put in a claim for $US25,000 a month.

The dispute over the guitar has made headlines over the past two years, as it continued to be a point of contention in the divorce: Silva claimed that Frances gave it to him as a wedding present, which Frances denies.

Frances Bean testified that the while she has no memory of her father, she "has had to deal with the trauma of his death her entire life". Silva will now get to keep the guitar in the final settlement.

Lee appealed the verdict a year ago, causing Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain to testify to block Lee's case.

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".

"I would hope that he would be proud of the human being I am even if he didn't like the art I am putting out".
