Man who appeared on ‘Nevermind’ cover as an infant accuses Nirvana of child pornography in lawsuit

The Hill

The man who appeared naked as a baby on a famed Nirvana album cover is suing the band, saying they profited off an image that constitutes "child pornography."

Members of the band, Spencer Elden's attorney claims in a suit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles federal court, "knowingly produced, possessed, and advertised commercial child pornography depicting [Elden], and they knowingly received value in exchange for doing so."

Now 30, Elden appears on the cover of Nirvana's smash 1991 record "Nevermind" as a then-infant depicted underwater with a dollar bill on a fishhook.

Elden, who claims he was never compensated for appearing on the cover as a four-month-old, is seeking $150,000 from each defendant, attorney fees and an injunction prohibiting the defendants "from continuing to engage in the unlawful acts and practices described herein."
