The model had asked the judge to let her keep the guitar after denying she gave it to Silva as a gift.

The acoustic has always been a bone of contention, as Silva has claimed Frances gave him the guitar as a gift - something that was denied by Frances.

Kurt Cobain's iconic guitar is reportedly now in the hands of his daughter's ex-husband.

Throughout the former couple's divorce proceedings, the rightful owner of the guitar had always been a point of dispute and discord.

Aside from its monetary value, the guitar is said to be only one of 300 made at the time.

The 25-year-old daughter of Nirvana rocker Kurt Cobain - who took his own life in 1994 - and Courtney Love was locked in a bitter court battle with her ex-husband Isaiah Silva over the ownership of the Martin D-18E guitar that originally belonged to Kurt, and according to TMZ, a settlement has been reached that gives the instrument to Isaiah.

The court ruled the photographs are exempt from Washington state's Public Records Act and releasing the photos would "violate the Cobain family's due process rights under the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution".

Kurt Cobain's suicide photos will remain sealed after an appellate court in Washington on Monday upheld a judgment from 2015 keeping them from being released to the public.

In her motion filed that same year, Frances Bean wrote that "Releasing these photographs would physically endanger me and my mother".

Love and Cobain have testified in this case previously with Love saying Cobain's death "was the most traumatic experience of my life".

Documents filed in late November listed Love as a potential witness in any trial, and that evidence would include receipts from the guitar shop where the Martin was purchased, and text messages from Silva to a third party, according to TheBlast.com.
