Giving some insight into why Frances Bean Cobain was recently granted a temporary restraining order against her own mother, shocking new documents report accusations of domestic violence by Courtney Love against her daughter.
The documents, filed by an attorney for Frances and the two people seeking permanent guardianship of her, request that the court seal all documents that relate "to a minor and allegations of domestic violence." They also request Frances' medical records be sealed.
In addition the documents read: "In this proceeding, every document reveals details of Frances's (sic) relationship with her mother."
Wendy O'Connor and Kimberly Dawn Cobain have been granted temporary guardianship and are seeking permanent guardianship of Francis, 17. In
the new legal documents, the lawyer representing all three writes: "All documents, records, and information filed in this proceeding to date have been filed conditionally under seal. Those documents set forth facts establishing the need for a guardianship, which are private and include medical information concerning Frances."
No specifics are given regarding the domestic violence reference. But a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com exclusively: "Frances Bean dealt with a great deal of turmoil from her mother, which falls under Courtney being emotionally abusive towards Frances."
Francis has a temporary restraining order against her mother and a hearing on January 5, 2010 will be held in an attempt to make the restraining order permanent. A hearing on Feb. 10 will be held to determine permanent guardianship of Frances.
