    Courtney love loses custody again

    Frances Bean Cobain is now under the guardianship of her late father's mother, Wendy O'Connor.

    According to the article this is temporary and no reason was given as to why the now 17 year old, Frances Bean is under her grandmother's care. I thought Courtney had it together.

    Have you seen her lately? She looks like walking death. She is beyond thin. And she hasn't been making a lot of sense lately, blogging gibberish that hardly anyone can understand. I can see how her daughter would be more comfortable with her Grandma.

    I don't think custody was taken away from Courtney. I think she voluntarily turned it over to Frances's grandparents for a short period of time so that they could make any necessary decisions concerning school, medical, etc... while Courtney is off doing something else (possibly career-wise - a movie or album or something). Or heck, maybe she's going to the desert to meditate for 60 days.

    No reason has been given, so we don't know. I just wanted to point out that relinquishing custody temporarily is not always done because you are a bad parent.

    What do you mean lately!? LOL
    I've been reading her internet postings for years, back when I was a member of a Nirvana message board, she used to post on the Hole one and you needed a translator to read her messages.

    Here's the latest (from perez, but whatever)

    Pretty bizarre. I also think its pretty low that she half blames Kurt's Mom for his death.

    she publicly insults her daughter in one breath and in the next says she loves her unconditionally

    why she's ever had custody is beyond me ...

    If you actually go to Courtney's facebook page, it seems she never posted what Perez posted - instead, she says one of the family members Frances is staying with wrote it and leaked it. I keep up with that Courtney page on FB and I never saw that she posted what Perez claims she did, but who knows - Courtney's pretty well-known for going off the rails all over the internet.

    It does sound like there is some real discord going on between Courtney, Frances and the grandparents. I hope they can all work it out. In any event, Frances will be an adult soon enough and have to navigate all that territory herself. I do think Courtney loves her daughter. I also think it would be challenging to have someone like Courtney as your Mom and 17 is prime rebellion territory.

    To be honest, I'm kind of surprised she is still alive.

    She is living on borrowed time, if she doesn't get clean and sober soon.

    Courtney and her mother, have pretty much had a hate/hate relationship for many years.

    I have read several articles that Courtney's mother, (who is a psychotherapist or psychologist or something like that) has written over the years about Courtney. Her mother matter- of- factly has stated that Courtney is a sociopath, and that she recognized this, and tried to get Courtney help for it, way back while Courtney was still a child.

    Very interesting to read, must be unbearably tragic for a mother to live.

    I've been fascinated by Courtney Love, and her antics, from way back when Kurt was still alive and married to her.

    She was for a time, the modern day Nancy Spungen, of Sid and Nancy fame. Only this time the roles were reversed, and he died, while she's been doing the slow suicide.

    I believe Courtney may have had something to do with Kurt's death. Lots of information on the Internet about that, too.

    By many accounts, Frances Bean is following in her mother's footsteps, with her over-the-top emotional rants and attention seeking performances.

    Being away from Courtney may be the best thing for her.

    I've always wondered if Courtney has some sort of mental illness - I'm NO expert, but bipolar comes to mind. She is an addict and many addicts begin using to fix their mental/emotional problems. Dual diagnosis of addicts is very common.

    So if Frances has some of this over-the-top stuff going on, it could be inherited. FWIW, the little I have seen on the press about Frances has shown a pretty positive, fairly well-balanced kid. I had never heard she was given to outbursts.

    In any event, I too have been fascinated with Courtney since I discovered Hole many years ago. I am an unapologetic fan of hers, but I am not in denial that she is one hot crazy mess. I hope they all can work this out.

    Courtney's mom, Linda Carroll, wrote a very interesting book, "Her Mother's Daughter", in 2006. I read this and several articles that came out years earlier. A must read for any Courtney Love fan or 'hater', lol.

    I also love Hole's music. But, not as much as I love Nirvana's.

    Frances looks so much like Kurt, it still can take my breath away.

    This is sad to hear about Frances...She does look like Kurt.

    Courtney has always been her worst enemy. I thought after all these years she would straighten out. In the pic from the article, she does not look as bad as she does when we see her, thin and at death's door.

    I too think she was somehow involved in Kurt's death.


    Happy Holidays

    Thanks for that book title, I think I'll pick it up. I've slowly been developing a fascination for Courtney Love. I think the crazy and the drug addiction seem to pique my interest because of my dealings with my sister, who is a recovering alcoholic and heroin addict.

    I certainly hope she can clean up her act because it does appear she is going down a very slippery slope.

    Justice for Travis


    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.
