Just last week, it was revealed that Courtney Love is being sued by the ex-husband of her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, for attempted murder in addition to a litany of other claims. Now, this situation has become even more convoluted, with another person coming forward to also accuse Love of stalking and harassment.
Recently, it was announced that Frances Bean Cobain was being forced to give up the iconic guitar used by Kurt Cobain during Nirvana’s 1993 MTV Unplugged performance. Isaiah Silva, an American musician known for fronting The Eeries, has been battling for the guitar since mid-2016, claiming that Frances Bean gave him the instrument as a wedding present after she received it from her mother.
However, Silva then brought a number of allegations against Courtney Love, stating that she was involved in a conspiracy that involved kidnapping, burglary, and attempted murder as part of a ploy to regain the guitar.
As TMZ noted last time, Isaiah Silva claims that the incident happened in June of 2016, when Love’s manager Sam Lutfi and two other men allegedly “burglarized, robbed, assaulted, sexually battered, kidnapped and attempted to murder him” at his home in West Hollywood.
Now, a former partner of Silva has come forward to accuse Courtney Love of stalking and harassment which resulted as part of an alleged attempt at bribery.
Jessica Sullivan, who has a child with Isaiah Silva and even lived with him and Frances Bean for a time, alleges that Courtney Love tried to bribe her in an attempt to get her on Frances’ side when she and Silva were divorced in 2016.
According to TMZ, Sullivan claims that Courtney Love and Sam Lutfi began to stalk her and repeatedly threaten her when their alleged bribery attempts did not take. According to Spin, who have viewed the full lawsuit, these bribery attempts included promises that Sullivan and her child would be looked after if she was to support Frances Bean in the divorce proceedings.
Sullivan states that Lutfi called her at one point, making threatening comments such as, “I’ll put you in the street you fucking cunt. You dyke, fucking bitch, whore,” before also stating “Your kid will be in an orphanage.”
Jessica Sullivan also claims that Love and Lutfi apparently put her phone number on the online classified site Craigslist in an ad for a free puppy, which actually belongs to her daughter.
Neither Courtney Love or Sam Lutfi have commented any further on these or the previous allegations that have been brought against them.
