Could Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of '90s rock royalty, the late Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain and his widow Courtney Love, be a homebody? Apparently so, according to Frances Bean's fiancé, Isaiah Silva, who recently spoke to People about his relationship with the 19-year-old.
"We don't go out to clubs so you won't find us stumbling out of them with Lindsay Lohan. We stay at home, read books and watch 'Arrested Development,'" Silva told People.
Silva, who is 26 and fronts the rock band The Rambles, added, "We're each other's everything."

As Tyler prepares to wed for the third time, he and Brady sat down with Oprah Winfrey for the talk show host's Final Chapter Sunday, discussing how their bond endures.
"For all the divorces I've had, I hurt those girls deeply, and there was some behavior that I'm ashamed of and I shouldn't have done," Tyler admitted to Winfrey on Sunday's show. "I don't want to hurt anybody again."
Brady says her relationship with the rocker works because they have a mutual understanding when it comes to his past transgressions and wandering eye.
