Yesterday, we all found out that Courtney Love lost legal custody of her 17-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain. Everyone (including my ass) figured it was due to Court freebasing Dimetapp again, but her lawyer (slash daytime dealer) says she is completely sober.
Hm. Interesting. Webster must have whipped up a brand new definition for “sober” since the last time I checked. Facebook rants don’t lie!
Court’s lawyer tells People that the decision to hand over guardianship to Kurt Cobain’s mother was entirely up to Frances Bean. Frances’ options were to stand on a corner while holding a sign that read, “ADOPT ME PLEASE,” or to go live with her memaw in Olympia, Washington. Frances went with the latter.
Court’s lawyer added, “Courtney’s been clean for years and is perfectly fine. This is simply about Frances preferring to live with her grandmother at this time. Frances is 17 and a strong-willed child, and this is a decision she made on her own. No matter what, Courtney loves her daughter more than anything in the world.”
I love how the lawyer says Frances Bean is “strong-willed.” He’s trying to make it sound like she’s some kind of problem child. Please. Courtney Love couldn’t take care of a Pet Rock. She’d throw it into the street and put the blame on it by saying it’s a “strong-willed rock.”
The decision was an easy one for Frances since she has a working brain.
