According to documents obtained by ET, Silva, 31, is requesting $25,000 a month -- a total of $300,000 a year -- in alimony. Silva, formerly of the band The Eeries, claims that he put his career on hold after marrying Cobain.
The documents go on to state that Silva has gone into debt after Cobain reneged on her promise to pay for private school and housing bills for his 7-year-old daughter from a previous relationship. Silva states that in addition to losing financial stability, his daughter has traumatically lost a step-mother, and therefore also requests funds for his daughter's visits to therapy.
Silva's request also mentions Cobain's lavish lifestyle as well as the estate of Cobain's late father, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, reportedly valued at $450 million, as proof of her wealth and ability to provide alimony payments. A hearing has been set for Sept. 7.
Divorce documents obtained by ET in March state that Cobain was open to paying spousal support, but was adamant about protecting her father's estate. So far no prenuptial agreement has surfaced.
