First of all, how did a baby hire a lawyer?
…..that baby is grown now? Boy, life comes at you fast.
Spencer Elden, who is allegedly no longer a baby, put on his big boy pants and filed a lawsuit against Nirvana for sexual exploitation. The album, “Nevermind” from 1991, is nothing short of iconic and arguably the best Nirvana album of all time. The album has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide.
Here’s where it gets complicated: Elden has “Nevermind” tattooed across his chest. Talk about irony. The guy basically wants to be known as the Nirvana baby but wants to turn around sue the band for something he had no control over. His parents did. They were paid a whopping $200, which would be $400 in today’s dollars. Not bad work for a baby. Imagine if your baby got a job and started paying bills. That’s what Elden’s parents experienced. Did they realize that their baby’s picture would be distributed 30 million+ times worldwide? Most likely, no.
Elden did an interview in 2016 for Time where he’s not bitter at all saying how “everyone involved in the album has tons and tons of money” and that he’s “living in his mom’s house driving a Honda Civic.”
Well, Elden you were the richest baby in 1991 and now you get great gas mileage. Life could be worse.
