Baby From Nirvana’s Nevermind Cover Amends Child Porn Lawsuit

Spencer Elden, the baby that was featured on Nirvana’s Nevermind album filed an amended complaint yesterday (November 22nd), claiming that he was photographed dressed as Hugh Hefner. According to Rolling Stone, the court documents claim that photographer Kirk Weddle intended to “trigger a visceral sexual response from the viewer” by activating “Spencer’s ‘gag reflex’ before throwing him underwater in poses highlighting and emphasizing Spencer’s exposed genitals.” The documents continued, “Weddle soon after produced photographs of Spencer dressed up and depicted as Hugh Hefner.”

The complaint also cites disturbing journal entries from Kurt Cobain. The documents note, “Undated journals written by Cobain sketch the album cover in a sexual manner, with semen all over it. In several instances, the journals describe Cobain’s twisted vision for the Nevermind album cover, along with his emotional struggles: ‘I like to make incisions into the belly of infants then f*ck the incision until the child dies.'”
