17-year-old Frances Bean Cobain would be better off being raised by a Dream Cat Venus than Courtney Love, so a judge made the no-brainer decision to hand over guardianship of her to Kurt Cobain’s mother and sister. This means that Courtney no longer has personal or financial control over her daughter.
Court lost custody of Frances Bean in 2003 after she broke into her ex-boyfriend’s house on overdosed on painkillers. Court regained custody of Frances Bean in 2005.
TMZ reports that the latest guardianship was put into play on Friday. Kurt’s mom and sister will only make decisions for Frances Bean. They won’t have any control over Kurt’s trust.
The court made the decision after monitoring Courtney’s crazy ways for a while now. Although, all they really needed to do was spend two seconds with one of Courtney’s eyelash-singeing Facebook rants.
And hopefully when Frances turns 18 a judge will bring down the gavel and make her Courtney’s legal guardian. Shit, they should just do that now.
