Kurt Cobain’s daughter Frances Bean and Tony Hawk’s son Riley Hawk have got married.
And what’s more, the rock royalty had a musical icon act as the celebrant on the day – REM frontman – Michael Stipe.
Michael is also Frances’ godfather, and her godmother is Drew Barrymore.
Frances and Riley have been dating since at least January 2021… and it’s her second marriage, although his first.

Frances filed for divorce from first husband, musician Isaiah Silva, in March 2016 after less than two years of marriage.
They ended up locked in a dispute over one of her later father Kurt’s guitars.
Frances’ mother is Hole frontwoman Courtney Love. Her father, Nirvana frontman Kurt died in April 1994, from a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the head.
Rumors that Frances and Riley were dating first began on Reddit, where one user posted a photo of them out at dinner together with his parents, Tony and Catherine.
As word began to trickle out, people started to share their comments, which for the most part were supportive.
‘If they had a child, their grandparents would be two of the largest icons from the nineties. Insane,’ wrote one person.
‘OK this is legitimately good news for humanity,’ another commenter shared.
And one person seem to sum up the sentiments by posting: ‘Daughter of the most nineties dude ever is dating the son of the second most nineties dude ever.’

In 2019, Frances’ mother, Courtney Love, demanded that Frances’ ex-husband Isaiah undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
The request was related to a complex legal battle between Love, Frances, and Silva, regarding an acoustic guitar the late Kurt Cobain strummed during one of Nirvana’s appearances on MTV: Unplugged.
Silva ended up with possession of the instrument after his divorce was settled with Frances.
Courtney and Frances have been ready to hold up their case against Silva.
‘Kurt would not want this and Courtney will not allow any of it,’ a family source told Page Six .
‘Frances and the family are prepared to fight with a fury of unprecedented legal force and they will prevail.’

The psychiatric evaluation will be the beginning of an attempt by Courtney and Frances to prove Silva insane.
According to the same source, Silva has a ‘frightening obsession’ with Kurt and possibly believes that he is a ‘reincarnation of Kurt.’
The psychiatric evaluation will be recorded and notes will be made public as the lawsuit continues.
