Silva, who was married to Frances from 2014 until their divorce was finalized last year, filed the suit against Love on May 25 for an alleged accident from June 2016. He claims in the documents that Britney Spearscontroversial ex-manager Sam Lutfi and two other men “did burglarize, rob, assault, batter, sexually batter, kidnap, and attempt to murder [him]” at his West Hollywood home.

“The primary objective of their conspiracy was to locate and take possession of a guitar believed to be worth millions of dollars, which was gifted to Silva, by [Frances], on January 8, 2014, six months prior to their June 29, 2014 marriage,” the documents allege.

TMZ reported earlier this month that the former couple’s divorce was finally settled, six months after it was finalized, and one of the conditions of the settlement was Kurt’s Martin guitar, which he played during an MTV Unplugged performance in November 1993, months before his death by suicide in April 1994.

A source told Us Weekly that on Wednesday, May 31, that Frances “forfeited her late father’s guitar to Isaiah in hopes he would just go away but unfortunately that failed,” adding that Kurt “would not want this and Courtney will not allow any of it.”

The source added: “Frances and the family are prepared to fight with a fury of unprecedented legal force and they will prevail.”

Silva also makes other accusations in the lawsuit, including claims that the three men who allegedly attacked him also attacked his mother. He also alleges that Lutfi delivered “narcotics and illicit benzodiazepines” to Frances.

“The narcotics and illicit benzodiazepine were hidden to ensure Silva was unaware of the secret drug-related business relationship between Lutfi and [Frances],” the documents read.

Frances is the only child of Love and Kurt, who were married from 1992 until the Nirvana rocker’s death in 1994.
