Courtney Love is facing yet another lawsuit tied to daughter Frances Bean Cobain's messy divorce from her musician ex-husband, Isaiah Silva. In addition to a civil complaint from Silva alleging that Love, former Britney Spears manager Sam Lutfi and 13 Reasons Why actor Ross Butler engaged in a criminal conspiracy to commit trespass, burglary, home invasion, robbery, assault, battery, kidnapping and attempted murder, Love is now also facing a suit from actress Jessica Sullivan, a woman who has a child with Silva.
According to a copy of the suit obtained by Billboard that was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday (June 4), Sullivan is alleging criminal conspiracy, bribery, dissuading a witness, solicitation of perjury, intentional infliction of emotional distress and stalking against Love, Lutfi and a number of other unnamed co-conspirators. It claims that Love, Lutfi and the others "entered into a criminal conspiracy to procure false statements, solicit perjury, and dissuade witnesses whose testimony would contradict [Frances Bean] Cobain's claims related to the legal ownership" of a 1959 Martin D-18E guitar once owned by her late father, Kurt Cobain, who played it during Nirvana's legendary MTV Unplugged in New York performance in 1993.
The famed guitar -- rumored to be worth millions -- is also at the center of the Silva suit, and in Sullivan's case, the claims focus on allegations that Love, Lutfi and others "advanced the objectives of their conspiracy through a pattern of conduct that included threats, bribes, stalking, intimidation, witness tampering, and dissuasion against Sullivan and her family members as part of an ongoing campaign of intimidation targeting witnesses favorable to Silva in his ongoing divorce litigation with [Frances Bean] Cobain."
