    Smells like something something

    Spencer Elden, who appeared as a naked baby on one of rock musicís most iconic album covers Ė Nevermind by Nirvana Ė is suing the band, claiming he was sexually exploited as a child.

    In a lawsuit filed in a Californian district court against numerous parties, including the surviving members of the band, Kurt Cobainís widow Courtney Love, and the record labels that released or distributed the album in the last three decades, Elden alleges the defendants produced child pornography with the image, which features him swimming naked towards a dollar bill with his genitalia visible.

    You must gladly pay your insurance premiums and think what a great deal you are getting.

    sounded to me like no permission and no payment. $150K seems pretty cheap to me....how much that album make? My guess enough to buy a shotgun at least.

    Elden is seeking damages of at least $150,000 from each of the 15 defendants, plus costs, and asks that the case be tried with a jury. The defendants have not yet responded to the lawsuit, or commented on it publicly. The Guardian has contacted Elden, his lawyer, and the managers of the Nirvana estate for further comment.
    15x150k …my sources say that’s over 2 million. Sounds like the plaintiff is friendly with the photographer. But wants some monies.

    permission from an infant/toddler?? There is no way that photoshoot could have happened without the parents consent.

    once again proving the high standards of TGR....talk first research later... I didnt make the shit up man..

    "The lawsuit alleges that Elden's parents never authorized the band to use the photo, which was taken at a Pasadena aquatic center in 1990, and that Elden received no compensation for it. "

    WTF is a naked infant doing at the pasadena aquatic center?

    Swim Diapers, damnit!!

    And who takes naked pictures of their kids in such a public place? Or any place?

    And was that dollar photoshopped? or were they really trolling for kids with a federal reserve lure?

    They should send him Kurt's red socks that Courtney left someone here to see if he'll take it in lieu of a payout.

    The socks were given to a buddy of mine when he was called to their house to change all the locks.

    The same guy recreated the album cover just five years ago. He didn't seem to have much of a problem at that time:

    https://www.bbc.com/news/newsbeat-37478523

    He also posed for the album's 10th, 17th, and 20th anniversaries. So after 30 years it looks like he's still trying to catch that dollar...

    I guess that my question is was that image ever used, sold, displayed, etc. as art. Did that actual image generate revenue ($$$) on its own, regardless of the crappy music it's associated with?

    Consider that college athletes, in some states, are now able to receive recompense for their names and likeness's being used on clothing and in on-line games, and maybe other shit.

    There's now a precedent, and perhaps that is why "Naked Baby " is finally seeking legal remedy for the original image.

    EDIT- Didn't know that ^^^, MultiVerse. Yeah, the guy has a little wee wee.

    Spencer is now an artist living in LA.

    His parents were paid £154 for the original shoot and he was paid the same amount earlier this month for the recreation.

    The original photo was taken by Kirk Weddle, a friend of Spencer's dad.

    The new picture is taken by British photographer John Chapple in the same California pool as the original.
