30 years later, the baby on the cover of “Nevermind” sues the Nirvana group – LCI


JUSTICE – Spencer Elden, 30, has decided to file a lawsuit against the American group Nirvana for “distribution of child pornography” and “exploitation”. In 1991, he posed at the age of 4 months on the cover of the album “Nevermind”, sold over 30 million copies worldwide.

It is one of the most famous album covers in rock history. As we celebrate 30 years of Nevermind of Nirvana, the young man who was immortalized naked in a swimming pool at the age of 4 months, sues the American group. Spencer Elden filed a complaint for dissemination of child pornography and child exploitation, claiming to be a victim of “lifelong damage“.

In 1991, his parents were paid $ 200 by photographer Kirk Weddle, also cited in the complaint, without knowing that the image of their son was going to appear on a disc which sold more than 30 million copies worldwide. In 2004, Nevermind even entered the bookseller of the United States Congress, under the title of “historical cultural record”.

In the lawsuit which was filed in a California court, Spencer Elder’s defense believes that the young man’s suffering is manifested by “a state of permanent emotional distress with physical manifestations that interfere with his personal and educational development“but also loss of income”old and future“allowing to cover”his medical expenses and psychological follow-up“so that”the loss of the joy of living“.

Spencer Elden didn’t always seem to suffer from his association with Nirvana. Over the years, he even regularly agreed to recreate the album cover for other photographers. He also had a “Nevermind” tattoo on his chest. But in an interview with GQ Australia in 2016, he said he was embarrassed to be associated with the legend of the Seattle group. “It’s twisted, it makes me angry, to be honest“, he confessed.

Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, the surviving members of Nirvana, have yet to respond to the case. Icon of the grunge generation, singer Kurt Cobain killed himself in 1994 at the age of 27.
