Grapevine: Frances Bean Cobain loses dad’s guitar
Frances Bean Cobain loses father’s guitar in divorce
Frances Bean Cobain, the 25-year-old daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, has lost possession of a piece of rock ‘n’ roll history in her divorce to Isaiah Silva. The artifact in question is a 1959 Martin D-18E acoustic guitar that Kurt Cobain played during the Nirvana’s famous “MTV Unplugged” performance. That set was recorded in late 1993, just months before his 1994 death. Silva, also a musician, was granted the guitar after a year-long battle. Silva claims Frances gave it to him as a gift. Courtney Love told TMZ at one point that Frances “never planned on doing that” and Cobain did file documents to get the ax back. TMZ reports that Cobain does not have to pay Silva alimony and she keeps the house.

Not all of the Spice Girls are invited to Royal Wedding
You’d think it wouldn’t be a British Royal Wedding without all of the Spice Girls in attendance, but alas, only Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell and Emma Bunton (Posh, Ginger and Baby Spice, respectively) are on the guest list, according to Page Six. Mel B. had previously claimed on the talk show “The Real” that she and the rest of the band were invited. As it turns out, they’re not. Other celebrities who are rumored to have been invited include George and Amal Clooney, Serena Williams and Priyanka Chopra.
