To steal Kurt Cobain’s guitar from Frances Bean Cobain’s ex-husband

Back in May, Riverdale and 13 Reasons Why star Ross Butler made headlines after Frances Bean Cobain's ex-husband, Isaiah Silva, sued him, Courtney Love, and several others. The reason? Per court documents obtained by PeopleSilva claimed in his suit that they were "conspiring to kill him with the intent of stealing" Kurt Cobain's MTV Unplugged guitar, which he received in the divorce settlement. Silva specifically alleged that on June 3, 2016, Butler, Love's manager Sam Lutfi, and Yan Yukhtman “entered into a criminal conspiracy to commit trespass, burglary, home invasion robbery, assault, battery, kidnapping, and murder." 

Butler is now denying any involvement in the alleged plot and is subsequently looking to get all claims against him dismissed. 

“I never entered into a conspiracy or otherwise agreed to commit any crime against Silva. I never conspired with anyone else to murder or kidnap Silva … or take possession of a guitar that Silva claims Ms. Cobain gave to him as a gift,” Butler said, according to new documents obtained by The Blast. He also says that he had “no communications with Defendant Courtney Love Cobain at any time concerning the purported events.”

Instead, Butler claims that he merely accompanied Lutfi to Silva's house on June 3 after Lutfi began expressing concern about Cobain and Silva, as “they had gone silent after sending him some troubling text messages." When they got to the house though, Butler says there were sheets covering the windows and that an alarm went off inside the house. However, Silva soon after came to the door and invited them in, greeting them "calmly and amicably."

"Silva was frail, emaciated, and had a terrible odor," Butler's explanation reportedly read. "The house was also messy and had a bad odor.” Butler also claimed that another man called the police on them, even though Silva said he knew Lutfi and Butler. Everything was allegedly resolved once law enforcement arrived. 

According to The Blast, Butler "was shocked to learn Silva sued him."

She takes defending her country seriously

Start your morning off right by watching Michelle Obama whip a ball straight at Harry Styles', well, balls. During a game of dodgeball between the former FLOTUS and The Late Late Show host James Corden and their respective teams, the throw that decided the entire match is one you'll want to watch over and over (and over) again.

When Obama challenged Corden to a U.S.A. versus U.K. match, using dodgeball to determine which home country was better, I already knew she was going to win. She's Michelle Obama. It was just as easy for her to convince everyone she'd win before grabbing a ball as it was to select her all-star crew; Obama shares in the clip, "You would not believe how easy it was to get people to do this. All I had to say was, you're gonna throw a ball at James Corden." I'd say yes! Her six-person team is made up of actors Allison Janney, Mila Kunis, Melissa McCarthy, Lena Waithe, and Kate Hudson.

Corden had a less easy time grabbing a team (he only has five people, including himself), made up of Harry Styles, Benedict Cumberbatch, Samwell Tarly John Bradley, and Reggie Watts. Styles suggests no one would have actually joined up with Corden had the late-night host not stalked them, joking that he called, texted, and even showed up at "your house, your work, your hairdresser, your pilates class, and your shower."

Even without the magic of jump cuts, the game flies by in a flash. Corden's entire team is wiped out in no time, leaving Styles alone to fight for his home country. The former One Direction band member had no chance once Obama had him in her crosshairs, and with one swift toss directed at Styles' crotch, Corden's team's fate is sealed forever.

Watch the full video below, and if you're just here for that winning blow, skip ahead to 6:46.

Get to know Transthetics, a truly transformative company that didn't set out to change the world

Alex is not your usual entrepreneur. The plain-spoken, self-described "...boring heterosexual guy..." just wants to have vanilla sex and relationships with women. He started Transthetics, penile prosthetics for transmasculine people, to serve this purpose. While Alex may be working on things that are transformative for individuals, he didn't start his company to "change the world" or be internationally recognized in the way many CEOs strive for. He doesn't even choose to use his surname in any product advertising, press, or fundraising materials. That might not seem so unusual, considering we live in a world that is so hostile to deviation from the gender norms—but we also live in a world of "rock star"-led start-ups, and anonymity is quite unusual there.
