I told you the other day that Frances Bean has legally separated herself from her mother by requesting that the courts change her guardianship over from Courtney to Kurt Cobain’s family members. Today we’ve learned that things have gotten a bit more serious, as a restraining order has been put on Courtney to stay away from her daughter. That means that Courtney can no longer contact Frances, directly or indirectly, which I suppose includes random late night Twitter and Facebook rambles.
In fact, it could have been Courtney’s poor Facebook etiquette that got this restraining order slapped on her in the first place. From ONTD:
Courtney Love has lashed out at daughter Frances Bean Cobain after the 17-year-old girl was placed under temporary guardianship of her paternal grandmother and Kurt Cobain’s sister. (No reason was given for the guardianship.)
“I hate to sound cold but any kid of mine who pulls this s**t has lost her position…” Love, 45, rants on her Facebook page. “She was deceptive, she lied and she’s lying to herself… My daughter is not always honest.”
Love also says her daughter isn’t as rich as she thinks she is, adding that she is “clearly deluded” if she thinks she can buy her grandmother a “small house in L.A.” Says Love, “I’d love to see how that works … She thinks she has all this money. The point is, I have all the money she has.”
Love insists her daughter “is a wonderful kid,” but she has “bad people around her and wants it both ways.”
She then names several of Kurt Cobain’s family members. She even tells her daughter that her grandmother “killed your father,” Kurt Cobain.
“You could’ve asked for emancipation…” Love tells her daughter. “You realize this will put you in juvenile family circus three times in your little life?”
Before signing off, Love tells her daughter, “I love you and always will unconditionally.”
Ewww. Ranting on Facebook about personal details of having lost your child publicly? Talk about the ultimate Lamebook entry. Sure makes any time my mother ever embarrassed me in front of people seem like small potatoes. Can you imagine the game that’s going on here? Courtney is humilated because she’s lost custody of her child (which obviously speaks to her ability to mother), so she strikes back on a website read by thousands of her fans and calls her daughter a liar.
Courtney doesn’t seem to realize that this whole thing is completely her fault. I know plenty of 17 year olds who lie to their mothers, but I really can’t think of too many mothers who would do this to their child. Thank goodness for Frances that she’s out of there finally.
