Frances Bean Cobain, an artist whose mother is rocker Courtney Love, Wednesday Silva, lead singer for The Eeries, in an unpublicized ceremony on June 29, 2014, according to Cobain's divorce filing in early 2016.

The guitar is estimated to be worth millions of dollars and is said to be only one of 300 made at the time.

TMZ now reports the couple have finally reached a property agreement and Frances will also have to give her ex spouse one of her father's most famous guitars, The Sun reports.

Last year, the site reported that Frances had filed court documents in attempt to reclaim the instrument, saying she would never give him a "priceless family heirloom".

Frances Bean Cobain divorced her husband, Isaiah Silva, six months ago, and the pair have fought about ownership of the guitar since mid-2016.

Kurt Cobain's only child Frances Bean Cobain appears to be planning a foray into the music world herself. They were married for less than two years.


Despite Cobain's request, a judge ruled that Silva can keep the guitar in the ongoing division of the ex-spouses' assets.

TMZ added that Silva was actually asking for $25,000 a month for spousal support, but was denied.

Kurt Cobain's daughter Frances has prevailed in a legal battle to keep photographs taken at the scene of her father's death sealed from the public, following an application from a conspiracy theorist to have them released.

Frances debuted some of her own music on Instagram recently.

When asked by if she believes the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" hitmaker would like her musical ventures, Frances said: "I don't have an answer for that because I don't want to speak on someone else's behalf".

Here's Cobain singing About a Girl from the 1993 MTV Unplugged session on the Martin D-18E.
