‘Nevermind’ Album cover baby sues Nirvana for sexual exploitation

The baby who is on the iconic Album cover ‘Nevermind’ is suing Nirvana for sexual exploitation.

Spencer Elden was photographed in 1991, when he was four-months-old, naked in a swimming pool with a dollar bill and a fishing hook.

Elden or his legal guardians never “signed a release authorizing the use of any images of Spencer or of his likeness, and certainly not of commercial child pornography depicting him,” the lawsuit read.

The lawsuit says Eldon had never received any compensation for the image, and asked for $150,000 in damages from each of the 15 defendants.

The Album “exposed Spencer’s intimate body part and lasciviously displayed Spencer’s genitals from the time he was an infant to the present day,” the suit continued.

The lawsuit continued to say that Elden had suffered extreme and permanent emotional distress from the photograph.

Representatives for Nirvana have not yet made any comment on the lawsuit.
