It turns out that living with Courtney Love is just as horrible as you’d expect because her daughter Frances Bean Cobain had legally cut the cord. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Frances is now being looked after by a court-appointed legal guardian and her mother now has no control of her daughter’s finances or personal life. TMZ noted that Frances’ new guardians have no power over the Cobain estate that she was left when her father died. Another sad detail? Courtney didn’t even bother to show up to the court proceedings.
These cases really only come up when the current guardian is unfit to parent, and it’s widely known that Courtney Love has many issues to sort out. Frances is 17, less than a year outside of being a legal adult, and she’s been living with Courtney her entire life. Whatever happened between the two of them must have been pretty significant, as Courtney’s ability to raise a child has been called in to question Frances’ entire life.
