LOS ANGELES, Sept. 29 (UPI) -- Frances Bean Cobain -- the daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love -- has been ordered by a judge to pay ex-husband Isaiah Silva $12,000 a month for temporary spousal support.

According to court documents obtained by Entertainment Tonight, Cobain will be making the payments for four months equaling $48,000 in total while the pair settle their divorce.

The Los Angeles Superior Court judge finalized the agreement between the pair that will also see Cobain covering Silva's attorney fees totaling $15,000.

Silva meanwhile was ordered to vacate their formerly shared Los Angeles residence.

Cobain and Silva who wed in 2014 and split in February, do not appear to have a prenuptial agreement in place. In August, Silva sued to receive $25,000 in monthly support claiming that he is a struggling musician with no means to support himself and his seven-year-old daughter.

"[Cobain] has net assets well in excess of $100 million. I am a musician with little income over the last couple years," Silva said in a declaration made to the courts at the time.

Entertainment Tonight reports that Cobain is open to paying spousal support but its adamant about protecting her father's estate which is worth upwards of $450 million.

Cobain last made headlines alongside her mother as they starred together in a new Burberry fashion ad.
