Spencer Elden, the baby that was featured on Nirvana‘s Nevermind album, wants his naked body removed from the 30th anniversary reissue. Last month, Elden sued Kurt Cobain‘s estate, the surviving members of Nirvana, and other parties, accusing them of child exploitation.
He claimed that his legal guardians didn’t formally consent to his image being used on the album cover. Meanwhile, legal experts have called the case “frivolous” and “offensive” to victims of child pornography.
As part of the lawsuit, Elden requested that the image be removed from future releases of the album, including the 30th anniversary reissue.
According to TMZ, Elden’s lawyer, Maggie Mabie, is demanding that Universal Music redact the image of Elden’s penis from the cover of the 30th anniversary reissue, asking the label to “end this child exploitation and violation of privacy.”
