A man who featured on Nirvana's iconic Nevermind album cover as a baby is accusing the band of 'sexual exploitation'.

The album had the punk/grunge hits 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' and 'Come As You Are'.

The now 30-year-old is suing the group's surviving members and Kurt Cobain's estate, claiming he couldn't consent to being pictured.

According to LADBible, the lawsuit also accuses the band of a 'sex trafficking venture', claiming Elden was forced 'to engage in commercial sexual acts while under the age of 18 years old'.
