Courtney Love Loses Custody of Daughter

Courtney Love’s train-wreck lifestyle backfired Friday when she lost guardianship of her 17-year-old daughter, Frances Bean Cobain. Love’s only child, whose father was late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, was taken away from her legally and the court appointed guardianship to Cobain’s mother, Wendy O’Connor, and sister, Kimberly Dawn Cobain. The guardianship, typically established when a parent is incapable of appropriately caring for his or her child, is in regard to Frances Bean both personally and financially. Her two new guardians, however, do not have control over the trust established after Cobain’s death in 1994.
