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.

Courtney Love’s Anti-Semitic Ramblings

Trashy trainwreck Courtney Love tries to keep herself in the public eye these days by wearing clothes from the dumpster and rambling on her blog. Most of the time her rants are pretty indecipherable, even though she SAYS she’s off the drugs. Her latest offering to the Jewish magazine Heeb is fairly coherent, (Heeb has editors) even if it’s pretty anti-semitic. Heeb’s probably gonna get some mail about this one.

Courtney’s mother is Jewish, but Courtney’s a Buddhist who hasn’t QUITE managed to get the hang of that Zen thing. She says of dead husband Kurt Cobain’s legacy:

“Every time you buy a Nirvana record, part of that money is not going to Kurt’s child, or to me, it’s going to a handful of Jew loan officers, Jew private banks, it’s going to lawyers who are also bankers . . .” The former Hole singer also mused on why she’s given up playing in an all-girl band: “Like, there are [bleep]ing riot grrls sitting there banging on pots and pans and talking about their vaginas, and that’s all really lovely, but the music blows.” On why she won’t date actors: “They’re [bleep]. They’re women.” And on being a parent: “I’m more like, ‘You’re not going to do that, so [bleep] off, or I’m taking your computer, and your [bleep]ing, you know, BlackBerry.

Ah, wonder why Courtney’s daughter Francis Bean Cobain spends so much time with her grandmother?! Courtney wrestled back custody of Francis a bit ago, unfortunately. Hopefully Francis’ teenage rebellion stage will be AGAINST the drugs that led to her father’s suicide and obviously still haunt her mother. ‘Cuz mom is SO uncool, Francis. Stick to frappuchinos.
