Man featured naked on Nirvana’s Nevermind album sues for child pornography

//

The baby who was photographed nude for the cover of Nirvana’s 1991 album “Nevermind” is upset. Spencer Eldon was pictured by the band in a swimming pool, with his genitals exposed. He’s now 30 years old and has filed a lawsuit against Kurt Cobain’s estate.

Elton claims he has suffered ‘lifelong damage’ from having his naked body exposed on an album that has sold over 30 million copies worldwide.

Now, according to a report, Elton claims Nirvana, Dave Grohl’s record label and the photographer, “Intentionally marketed Spencer’s child pornography and leveraged the shocking nature of his image to promote themselves and their music at his expense.”

Eldon was four months old at the time. The album’s original cover showed Eldon’s penis fully exposed. Some online retailers modify the cover to hide the baby’s genitalia. Music websites, online retailers and record stores still display the pornographic image of a young Eldon.


“The permanent harm he has proximately suffered includes but is not limited to extreme and permanent emotional distress with physical manifestations, interference with his normal development and educational progress, lifelong loss of income earning capacity, loss of past and future wages, past and future expenses for medical and psychological treatment, loss of enjoyment of life, and other losses to be described and proven at trial of this matter,” Eldon claims in his lawsuit.
