Hey what the!? Nirvana baby suing Nirvana

 You know the Nirvana album with the baby swimming following a dollar? Well the baby is now suing Nirvana... or what's left of it, and all the past and present owners of Nirvana's music... the reason?  It sounds like "Child Corn-nopegraphy" despite the fact that there is nothing sexual about the photo. The guy is asking for $150,000 PER defendant, and he's named a bunch of people. He is literally a 30 year old baby chasing a quick buck. 

His parents got a "bad deal" with just $200... and the platinum album plaque that can be sold as memorabilia. Not to mention that the kid himself has gone back to do multiple recreations of the cover, Tattoo the Album's name on himself and basically running on the fame of being the "Nirvana Baby". For something "so traumatic" he surely has milked the hell out of it.
So much exploitation...
Something doesn't add up here. If this was so traumatic, why would he tattoo a permanent reminder of it? Or why would he keep reenacting the traumatic experience?

It’s strange that I did this for five minutes when I was 4 months old and it became this really iconic image. …. It’s cool but weird to be part of something so important that I don’t even remember.”

He doesn't remember anything horrible happening. It was a 5 minute shoot that his parents were compensated for. He has willingly done many recreations throughout the years, and as stated before he has tattooed himself the Album's title on himself to renind EVERYONE that he's the "Nirvana baby"... apparently he's also an artist.

As you can see, he's an artist... his style is not something I like, but there is some discipline there. But artists of his caliber are a dime a dozen. The only "advantage" he has over other artists if his caliber is that HE IS THE NIRVANA BABY... and HE KNOWS IT. That's why he tried to get Nirvana to contribute or promote his art show a few years back, but they didn't. That's what started his "bad blood" against Nirvana.

So, yeah... I don't think the case will go in his favor. His parents agreed that $200 was compensation enough at the time. They received more than that. He also was "paid in exposure", which he exploited as best he could. Also, he's suing the wrong people... The people who put him through this "traumatic 5 minute experience THAT HE DOESN'T REMEMBER" but has milked out for 30 years,  A.K.A. his parents are the ones to be sued, but since they don't have Former rockband getting royalties money, he's suing everyone who had the faintest affiliation to Nirvana. Trying to claim that the picture is "Piddie Corn" by using the claim that Cobain wanted a sticker covering the cocktail weenie that said "if you have an issue woth this you might be a word that rhymes with "Peter File"... well, since he and his lawyer are raising an issue with the pic, does this mean that they are like Jared from Subway? 

Here's an alternative for the Nirvana baby to make some money...
