Courtney Love has lost legal control over her 17-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain.
In papers filed Friday at Los Angeles Superior Court temporary guardianship was granted to Wendy O’Connor and Kimberly Cobain, mother and sister of Courtney’s late husband, and father of Frances, singer Kurt Cobain.
The guardianship is for both Frances’ personal and financial well-being, although the guardians will not have control over the trust that was created for Frances after her father’s death.
This isn’t the first time Love has lost control of her daughter. In October 2003 she lost custody of Frances when she was ordered to live with Wendy O’Connor following Love’s arrest for an attempted break-in to her ex-boyfriend’s home, a drugs overdose and a suicide threat . It took Love till January 2005 to regain custody.
