Frances Bean Cobain and Riley Hawk Exchange Vows in a Blissful Ceremony. Frances Bean Cobain and Riley Hawk, the famed skateboarder Tony Hawk’s son, have taken the plunge into matrimony, as revealed by documents unearthed by TMZ. The couple acquired their marriage license a month before their San Diego County wedding, with PEOPLE corroborating the news via a representative of Tony Hawk.
Their wedding, as documented on the marriage certificate obtained by TMZ, occurred on October 7, officiated by none other than R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe, who holds the role of Frances’ godfather.
Frances Bean Cobain, the 31-year-old offspring of Courtney Love and the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, disclosed her romantic involvement with Riley, a 30-year-old professional skateboarder, the previous year.
After taking a year off from social media, Frances came back to Instagram in January 2022 and posted a beautiful carousel of pictures that captured events she called a source of great delight. Riley smiled while holding a puppy decked out for the holidays in one of the touching pictures that showed the progression of her bond with Riley. Riley’s father, Tony, and stepmother, Catherine Goodman, were also in the picture with Frances and Riley as they cuddled up on a boat expedition.
Frances highlighted the advantages of her year-long Instagram break in her caption, highlighting the great effects it had on her mental, emotional, and spiritual health. She expressed her sincere thankfulness for this transition as she thought back on how 2021 had brought her into the here and now. Frances toasted the new year and wished everyone a prosperous 2022 full of real connections, warmth, and profound self-discovery.
Frances was previously married to Isaiah Silva for 21 months, starting in June 2014. This is her second marriage. Due to their irreconcilable disagreements, their marriage ultimately ended in divorce proceedings in 2016. Frances was insistent that Silva should have no claim to her father’s sizable $450 million inheritance. A protracted ownership issue involving Kurt Cobain’s famous guitar also arose during the divorce, but Silva finally prevailed in the settlement.
