Frances Bean Cobain Files for Divorce

Frances Bean Cobain has filed for divorce from her husband of 21 months, Isaiah Silva, and the daughter of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain is determined to protect her father's $450 million fortune during the split.

In divorce documents filed at the Los Angeles Superior Court, Cobain, 23, asks that all premarital assets including her inheritance be awarded to her as separate property.

Cobain married The Eeries frontman in a private ceremony on June 29, 2014, and reportedly didn't even invite her mother, Courtney Love (above right), to the wedding.

The reason for divorce is cited as irreconcilable differences and while Cobain is paying spousal support to Silva, 31, she wants to ensure that he will not receive any of her dad's $450-million estate.
