Frances Bean Cobain in Combative Divorce, Ex Requests Massive Alimony Award

Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of famed musician Kurt Cobain, is still embroiled in a contentious divorce that seemingly has no end in sight. Cobain’s estranged husband, Isaiah Silva, recently asked a divorce court judge to award him spousal support totaling at least $25,000 per month.

Silva reportedly told the divorce court judge that he does not have any money and would be broke and unable to support himself without a sufficient amount of spousal support from Cobain. Silva claimed that he actually quit a well-paying job and did not seek employment at Cobain’s request shortly after the couple got married. He reportedly did this because Cobain promised to pay for all of his monthly expenditures going forward, including private school tuition and other expenses for a child from a previous relationship.

Silva said that Cobain is no longer willing to honor her earlier agreement, so he is asking the divorce court to force Cobain to provide him with alimony.

In addition to requesting spousal support, Silva is also asking for 50 percent of all money that Cobain earned through business transactions while the couple was married. Cobain and Silva were married for approximately two years.

Cobain reportedly has as much as $100 million that she inherited from her father, deceased Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain. Since there was no prenuptial agreement in place when Cobain and Silva tied the knot, the couple’s divorce could be very complicated.

Client Reviews
I was living a nightmare of being falsely accused in a judicial system that considers all fathers to be dead beat dads until proven innocent. Living out of state and facing the possibility of jail, I miraculously found Jon’s website and called his office. Within a week the tables were turned, the lies were exposed, and the harassment was stopped. If you need someone that will challenge the system, then you need Jonathan Katz. Greg Weaver
Jon’s integrity towards his clients is what makes him a standout attorney. He makes it a priority to know what's important to you. You’re not just a number. He is upfront with you right from the start. He will not string you along just for his financial benefit. He is only willing to settle the case if that's truly what you want. Anytime I called him I received a call back from him that day. Not someone else in the office. He is an attorney that has a passion for what's important to his clients. John Morrissey
Being a single mom, I had enough stress in my life. I had no idea how to go about protecting myself. My daughters were my priority. Jon walked me through the process. He turned a difficult time into a workable solution. Diane Chiriani
Jon thinks well, works to be clear and honest. He works to get to a strong argument. He seems to have a good working relationship with everybody at the courthouse. I get the feeling he has no trouble thinking like a judge. He is friendly and courteous. He doesn't overbill. He takes and returns calls promptly. His legal staff is friendly and competent. What's not to like? Rick S.
I liked that there was always transparency throughout my case. Genevieve H.
