Courtney Loses Guardianship of Daughter Frances Bean Cobain

Courtney Love is no longer the legal guardian of Frances Bean Cobain, her daughter with late rock legend Kurt Cobain. Temporary guardianship of the Nirvana frontman’s daughter has been granted to her grandmother and her father’s aunt.

Los Angeles Superior Court documents do not reveal why guardianship was removed from Courtney Love. Kurt Cobain’s mother, Wendy O’Connor, and his aunt, Kimberly Dawn Cobain, will take over care for Frances Bean for the time being. They will not, however, have access to Frances Bean’s trust fund.

The temporary guardianship will remain valid until February. Courtney Love was not present at the court proceedings. Her attorney told People the issue is not Love’s behavior. “Courtney’s been clean for years and is perfectly fine,” he said. “This is simply about Frances preferring to live with her grandmother at this time.”

Love won a nasty custody battle over Frances Bean in 2005 after she lost guardianship following an overdose and arrest on drug charges in 2003. Love promised at the time she would clean up and get straight for the benefit of Frances Bean.
