Frances Bean Cobain has filed for divorce from Isaiah Silva, her husband of less than two years. The only child of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love apparently noted in her divorce filing that Silva has no legal right to money from the Nirvana frontman’s estate.

Cobain secretly wed Silva, who’s in the band The Eeries, before a little more than a dozen friends in June 2014 after dating for around three years. Love was not invited, and initially was unaware that her daughter got married. Cobain and Silva have no children, which simplifies the divorce and money matters. Still, the 23-year-old Cobain is willing to pay Silva spousal support.

According to TMZ, Cobain noted in her court filing that Silva should not even contemplate trying to get money from her late father’s estate, which has been valued in the hundreds of millions. Neither Cobain nor her outspoken mom have commented on social media about the divorce. Interestingly, though, Love posted a photo on Tuesday of her formerly estranged daughter in London with her, along with a caption that included the hashtag “#proudmom.” Gossip Cop will update as we get more information about Cobain’s divorce from Silva.
