As the daughter of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, it would be fair to assume that Frances Bean has earned a considerable sum of money from his estate. After all, the iconic rockstar still holds sway over new generations of teenagers — 23 years after his death.
Now, it’s been revealed in court documents from her ongoing divorce with estranged husband Isaiah Silva just how much the 25-year-old gets every month. According to People magazine, Bean earns over $100,000 a month, with $95,000 coming from publicity rights and $6,500 from dividends. At the same time, it is being reported that Bean spends $200,000 per month (mainly on legal fees), something she’s contested: “I’m sorry, but who has the time to spend $200k a month? That’s fucking absurd. None of the information that has been reported is accurate.”

Isaiah, her husband of two years, is trying to challenge Frances’ stake in publicity rights to Nirvana. She also has rights to the grunge band’s music, which he reportedly can’t touch. Following the reports, Frances shared a post on Instagram asking people to donate to the Humane Society’s campaign for animals affected by the recent hurricanes, saying, “Money is finite. Please donate to abandoned animals caught in the wreckage of hurricane Irma and Maria.” The brunette beauty was most recently seen at the Yves Saint Laurent show in Paris with her mother Courtney Love, who she’s had an infamously tumultuous relationship with.
