Courtney Love’s ex-manager accused of kidnapping Frances Bean Cobain’s estranged husband

Sam Lutfi previously had a restraining order filed by Britney Spears

Sam Lufti, the former manager of Courtney Love, has been accused of kidnapping the estranged husband of the singer’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain.

Lufti (pictured below, 41) was formerly the manager of Britney Spears but had a restraining order filed against the star eight years ago.

Radar Online now reports that Lufti has been accused of “kidnapping and robbing” Frances Bean’s estranged husband, Isaiah Silva. Frances Bean is the daughter of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.


The incident is alleged to have taken place earlier this month (June 3), according to police reports obtained by RadarOnline. According to the Los Angeles Police Department documents, Lufti and an accomplice “grabbed” Silva and “carried him to his car”.


“[The] victim [was] in fear for [his] life,” the report states. “He did not want to go with suspects.”

Lutfi is also accused of stealing Silva’s phone and smashing a glass door, which caused nearly $4,000 worth of damage.

Silva filed a police report on the matter five days later.

Frances Bean is thought to have wed Isaiah Silva, frontman of band The Eeries and Cobain’s boyfriend of five years, at an intimate ceremony in June 2014. Around 15 guests reportedly attended the wedding but mother Courtney Love was allegedly not invited.

Frances Bean Cobain filed for divorce 21 months later.
