Courtney Love's daughter gets restraining order
Frances Bean Cobain – whose father is late Nirvana rocker Kurt Cobain – has taken legal action against her mother just a week after guardianship of her was handed over to Kurt's mother, Wendy O'Connor and sister Kimberly Dawn Cobain, at the teenager's request.Courtney Love's daughter has been granted a restraining order against the singer.
A judge has issued a temporary restraining order forbidding Courtney to have contact with Frances, with another hearing is set for January 5 to consider making it permanent.
After guardianship of her daughter was taken from her last week, for undisclosed reasons, Courtney posted a rant on website Facebook branding her only child "deceptive and deluded".
She wrote: "I hate to sound cold but any kid of mine who pulls this s**t has lost her position ... she was deceptive, she lied and she's lying to herself."
While Frances is in her grandmother's care, she still relies on her mother, who is in full control of Kurt's estate, for money – which Courtney has also threatened to withhold from her.
Courtney added: "Frances is clearly deluded that can buy her grandmother a small house in LA (sic). 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."
Kurt's brother, Charles Fradenburg, said Wendy has been trying to get custody of 17-year-old Frances for a long time.
He said: "Courtney is not fit to take care of Frances, she can barely take care of herself. Courtney wasn't doing any parenting at all, she was hiring nannies to do all of the work. This is a wonderful thing for the family."
