Is Frances Bean Cobain's ex being greedy by asking for spousal support, or just requesting what he deserves?

Frances Bean Cobain's divorce may have just taken a turn for the worst. Cobain's ex-husband, Isaiah Silva, is reportedly requesting $25,000 per month in spousal support from her.

Yes, you read that right! While Cobain is worth an estimated $100 million, that's still a lot of money. Some people even live comfortably on $25,000 per year.

According to court documents, Silva says his monthly expenses include $4,500 on rent, $200 on clothes and $3,333 on private schooling for his child from a previous relationship. Cobain and Silva have no children together.

So, why does Silva need so much money from Cobain? The musician says that his income from his band, The Eeries, has "changed significantly" since the divorce proceedings started. He also reportedly "left a steady job" when the couple got married.

"Due to break up of marriage and incidents of violence and harassment against me I have been unable to tour and record music," Silva stated in the the court documents.

Silva also believes that he is entitled to half of Cobain's assets she earned during their marriage because he and Cobain did not sign a prenuptial agreement.

However, Cobain requested that Silva not receive any monetary gains from her late father's estate in the original divorce documents filed in March of this year.

"Petitioner requests that all gifts, inheritance, bequests and all other pre-marital assets, and all of her post-separation earnings, and acquisitions, as well as her clothing, jewelry and personal effects, be confirmed and/or awarded to her as her separate property plus all credits, offsets and reimbursements to which she is entitled," the court documents state.

However, Cobain has said she would be open to paying and receiving spousal support. Cobain and Silva dated for five years before getting married in 2014.
