    Funny how it took him 30 years (after having 'Nevermind' tattooed on his chest and appearing in countless album cover recreations) to decide he was exploited ....

    Going after some money is one thing, but now claiming it was child porn that ruined his life? What a load of old bollocks. He should be ashamed of himself, the loser. I'd love to be a fly on the wall to hear what Dave Grohl is saying about this shit.

    It’s not even 3m total when all the money is spoken for and with attorney fees, homeboy isn’t really getting a fancy payout. I hope they’ll settle and give the guy a buck and the band can just continue to live as a defunct act. It’s not like the money isn’t there and it’s not like the model shouldn’t get a cut after all these years for basically an iconic image.

    As for the charges, yeah, the guy should’ve begun making waves as soon as he felt uncomfortable but that was then and this is now. Ludicrous that they have to drag sex workers in the mud to make their crummy argument. I’m sure Cobain would totally be on board for giving the band and the estate the middle finger and getting a payout. They guy hated all of this money stuff

    To be fair, it was a bit short sighted of the record company to not get the image legally sorted at the time, but then i suppose they had no idea how iconic that album cover would be in the future ....

    Love that he got a “Nevermind” tramp stamp on his chest.

    How the picture was taken at the time and the lack of paperwork is careless, fitting for the most iconic grunge band of all time I guess.

    And that dude is so freaking shameless. Totally fitting to go after the money now, with all that woke political correctness taking over all of the space everywhere, to the point it’s considered nos civic duty to cancel someone because they were stupid as a teen or in their early 20s and the Internet remembers it... More to the point, did I dream or Apple are really considering accessing our phones pictures to check wether or not Apple users aren’t pedophiles? Perfect timing to bring up this case is all I’m saying… well and I woke up bitter I guess.

    I just hope its seen for the obvious cash grab it is, and gets laughed out of court. He doesn't deserve fuck all after this, he's the one that spent half his life telling everyone he's the kid on the cover, and now suddenly he's a victim? He even freely admits it opened doors for him ... he's got brass balls, I'll give him that.

    Makes me think of the girl on the one Vampire Weekend album. She sued/got paid for them using her photo without permission.

    Differences here are she sued immediately, not 30 years later. Also, Vampire Weekend used her photo unbeknownst to the girl. Nevermind baby's parents were fully aware Nirvana wanted to use it.

    Fuck this guy. Now all of a sudden he has a problem with his pic being used. This has to get laughed out of court.

    He needs the money to move out of his mom's basement.

    Good for him! I hope he gets a giant payout and everyone still living in the early 90s when the Nirvana estate wasn't worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and hadn't been co-opted for decades by much bigger and nastier dollar-chasers than this man, stays really mad about it :D

    Read on Instagram that he decided to sue after the band blew off his art show.

    The rest of the story is about how much trouble that baby caused when his diaper went missing and ended up in the filter unbeknownst to the pool owner and -long story short- caused a lot of monetary damage. Don’t get me started on the trickle down and what ended up happening to the pool boy, aye aye aye.

    pssst, don’t believe a word I’m saying ;)

    I believe people can have awakenings at various stages of their lives that are contradictory to how they have lived previously, BUT it is indeed suspicious the way he’s gone about it, I agree, not that his trauma isn’t real, only he knows that, all I have to go by is this Internet thing.

    It's pretty much this and the fact that his parents were paid I think 200 dollars. Everytime Nirvana has a rerelease or anniversary it brings more aware to the album. If anything the kid should be pissed at his parents.
