The nude baby on Nirvana’s Nevermind album has filed a new $1.5million lawsuit claiming the iconic image is child pornography after a judge threw out his original case.
Spencer Elden, 30, had his initial claim dismissed by Federal Judge Fernando M. Olguin on January 4 after his lawyers missed a deadline, but was given permission to file an amended version.
The new complaint, filed on Wednesday maintains the ‘lascivious nature of his image’ amounted to ‘child pornography’ that helped the band reap tens of millions of dollars at his expense.
