Photographs from the scene of Kurt Cobain's death will not be released to the public, the Washington State Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday.

The 25-year-old artist and model will give up the 1959 Martin D-18E guitar Kurt Cobain famously played during his November 1993 performance with Nirvana on MTV Unplugged, according to E!

Despite losing the prized possession, TMZ reports that Frances won big in the finalisation of the settlement, as she reportedly won't have to pay a penny to Isaiah in spousal support after he originally put in a claim for $US25,000 a month.

Despite Cobain's request, a judge ruled that Silva can keep the guitar in the ongoing division of the ex-spouses' assets. That alone would make it worth millions of dollars but it's also said to be only one of 300 made. According to the ruling, the photos are exempt from the state's Public Records Act, and releasing them would "violate the Cobain family's due process rights under the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution".

The Blast reports that, in 2014, an author named Richard Lee sued the city of Seattle to get the photos of the rock icon released.

"It's not [Isaiah's] to take", Love said.

Lee appealed the 2015 ruling past year, prompting Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain to file documents and testify to block Lee's case.

Two years ago, Hole frontwoman and Cobain's widow Courtney Love gave a statement accusing Lee of trying to exploit Cobain's death, which he claims to have been investigating for more than 23 years.

Love and Cobain have testified in this case previously with Love saying Cobain's death "was the most traumatic experience of my life".
