Frances Bean Cobain ordered to pay temporary spousal support

Frances Bean Cobain has been ordered to pay her estranged husband $48,000 in temporary spousal support.

The 24-year-old artist - who is the daughter of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain - split from Isaiah Silva in March after less than two years of marriage, and now a Los Angeles Superior Court judge has ordered her to hand over $12,000 a month for the next four months while the former couple sort out the details of the divorce, TMZ reports.

And Frances must also pay $15,000 to cover the 31-year-old musician's attorney's fees.

Isaiah has been ordered to leave their former marital home, and he and Frances were ordered to undergo mediation to help resolve their divorce.

The temporary ruling comes after Isaiah previously requested $25,000 a month in spousal support.

The couple had no pre-nuptial agreement and he wants half of the money she made during their marriage.

He also claims he left a steady job when they tied the knot because Frances, who is worth more than $100 million, offered to look after his bills.

Frances gained access to a trust fund in August 2010 when she turned 18, which is said to have included 37 per cent of her late father's estate, following his suicide in 1994 aged 27.

She married the Eeries rocker in a secret ceremony in June 2014 but things came crashing down shortly afterwards and the raven-haired beauty filed for divorce earlier this year.

The pair, who don't have any children together, had been dating five years, four of which they were engaged for, before they got hitched away from the limelight.

Frances previously accused her estranged husband of stealing her late father Kurt Cobain's $1 million guitar.

Isaiah has claimed in legal documents that Frances gifted him the guitar, which Kurt used during the band's MTV Unplugged gig in 1993, as a wedding present but she has denied this allegation and now wants the iconic instrument back in her care.
