Spencer Elden was photographed for the cover of Nirvana’s hit album Nevermind at the age of 4 months. The album sold very well. The photograph gave Spencer fame, and he was invited to photo sessions when he grew older. His current network is about $50,000.
Although Elden is trying to build a career of an artist, he is better known for that old picture. One day he confessed that this made him feel like a porn star, because his genitals were visible on the photo. He has initiated a lawsuit against the surviving Nirvana musicians. He explains his decision to sue them by the facts that the photo violates the child pornography statute and that he could not physically give consent to publishing the picture at the age of 4 months.

Biography

Elden got pictured back in 1991 thanks to Rick Elden’s (his father’s) friendship with Weddle of Nirvana. Rick consented to picture his son for $200. It would not be difficult, so they pictured Elden as he was swimming in the pool. The picture appeared on the album cover. Later, the band sent a platinum copy and a teddy bear to Rick’s family. Elden began to react to the picture years later. He grew up as every other regular boy. He discovered a knack for drawing in childhood. He finished high school in Los Angeles.

Spencer’s Earnings and Work

The Nevermind album climbed the charts and reached a top position thanks to the Smells Like Teen Spirit single, which it included. It sold around 30 million copies. The baby on the cover became a celebrity without knowing it. Things began to clear up as Spencer grew older.
When he was in his late teens, he received $1000 to take a similar picture in a pool. While growing up, he would receive offers and invitations from those who would recognize him. He would accept offers to recreate the picture for the album’s anniversaries. Some would offer to join a bunch or go to swim in a pool. At some point, he began to grow tired of this and one day he confessed that he was very displeased at being treated like a porn star.

Personal

The photograph did affect Elden Spencer’s life in some ways. One day he said that some girls would take interest in him for a little while and then they would leave him. Most likely, they believed that he was a celebrity with a thick wallet. Once they realized that it was not the case, they would abandon him. He said that such incidents would give him a lot of dismay.
Elden Spencer is a successful artist. Not long ago, he has initiated a proceeding against the Nirvana band, Kurt Cobain’s widow, as well as other persons involved in the use of the picture and paid for that. He has received a lot of criticism, because he is suing people for something that happened thirty years ago, and for which he would not care much until recently.
He refers to the federal child pornography law and the fact that he was too young to understand what he was doing. He says that those involved in the cover have received a lot of money for violating the law and failure to redact his genitalia from the image. He is trying to take $150,000 from each of these people.

Income

So far, Elden Spencer’s net worth does not exceed $50,000.
