Courtney Love Allegedly Tried To Kill Daughter’s Ex To Get Kurt Cobain’s Guitar, Lawsuit Says

Courtney Love is being sued by the ex-husband of her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, who claims Love tried to have him killed to get back a guitar from her late husband Kurt Cobain.

The wild lawsuit also lists Britney Spears’ former manager, Sam Lufti, and “13 Reasons Why” actor Ross Butler as accomplices.

Isiah Silva says that Love, Lufti, and Butler formed a criminal conspiracy to commit trespass, burglary, home invasion, robbery, assault, battery, kidnapping and murder, according to Billboard. Their alleged goal was to get the ultra-rare 1959 Martin D-18E guitar used during Nirvana’s “MTV Unplugged” performance in 1993, which is believed to be worth millions of dollars.

The guitar had been gifted to Silva by Frances Bean as a present shortly before their marriage, according to TMZ. The two divorced in 2016 and have been battling for the right to the instrument ever since.

The suit says that Lufti provided Cobain, 25, with drugs, leading

Legless Florida Fugitive Found After Man Tried To Help Her Hide In A Plastic Container

Police in Florida found a woman who had been on the run for three years — after her boyfriend tried helping hide her legless body into a plastic storage container.

Alabama Man Tried To Kidnap Woman And Sell Her ‘Clean Virgin’ Daughter For Sex

An Alabama man could spend the rest of his life behind bars for attempting to kidnap a woman and sell her 14-year-old daughter for sex.

Brian David “Blaze” Boersma pleaded guilty to the attempted kidnapping of a mother and her daughter, according to a Monday press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Alabama.

U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town wrote that Boersma, 48  had plans to kidnap a mother, allegedly help kill her, and sell her young daughter to a pimp. His plan was thwarted by undercover FBI agents.  

Town stated that Boersma, a truck driver, allegedly asked a co-worker if he could help Boersma find someone to pay to kidnap a woman and her teen daughter. He allegedly thought he would find someone to pay $40,000 for the girl because she is a “young, clean virgin.”  Boersma then allegedly gave that co-worker $3,440 in installments for a future kidnapping.

Ex-Playboy Playmate Claims Trump Tried To Pay Her For Sex During Alleged Extramarital Affair

On Friday, The New Yorker published a bombshell story that accuses President Donald Trump of having an extramarital affair with former Playmate of the Year Karen McDougal. The story details how Trump met Dougal at a party for “The Apprentice,” held at Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion in 2006.

The document states that Trump “immediately took a liking to me, kept talking to me – telling me how beautiful I was, etc. It was so obvious that a Playmate Promotions exec said, ‘Wow, he was all over you – I think you could be his next wife.’ ”

Police Conduct Sting On Wife Who Allegedly Tried To Hire Hitman By Helping Husband Fake His Own Death

A Texas woman was sentenced to 20 years in prison last year after attempting to hire a hitman to murder her husband — and after her husband faked his own death to catch her in the act.

Now her intended victim, the boxing coach Ramon Sosa, is telling the story of how he and local investigators used stage makeup to convince his ex-wife Maria Sosa that he was dead.

“When I saw the video of her — when they showed her the staged photos of me dead with bullet in the side of my head — she giggled and laughed like she hit the lotto,” said Ramon, reported ABC 13.

The couple was going through a divorce at the time of the 2015 murder plot. Prosecutors later said that Maria wanted Ramon dead in order to claim his money.
