Frances Bean Cobain, 19, the daughter of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain, has been dating Isaiah Silva of L.A. band the Rambles for more than a year – and they may have taken the next step, reports the OC Weekly.

With her soft, wistful expression and Old Hollywood glamour, Frances Bean Cobain's style is about as far as she can get from that of her parents, the late grunge rocker Kurt Cobain and her wild child mom, Courtney Love.
A new series of photos, taken by fine art photographer Rocky Schenck, captures the now-blonde 19-year-old alternating between sultry and sweet poses.
Cobain, an artist, also posed for some wildly different shots by Hedi Slimane that appeared earlier this month. In that set, she was a brunette shown smoking and covered in tattoos.

What Courtney Love wants, Courtney Love gets.
Contrary to reports suggesting the rocker was interested in Robert Pattinson playing her late-husband Kurt Cobain in a planned biopic, Love now says she never planned to enlist the Brit.
"Isn't that so stupid, who would cast him? That's just wrong," Love told The Canadian Press. "No offense." Softening her position a bit, the Hole frontwoman later Tweeted: "HEY I LIKE R PATZ HES JUST NOT RIGHT FOR KC!"
So, who would Courtney love to play Cobain? She nominated Ryan Gosling or James McAvoy for the role.

When Frances Cobain agreed to be a guest vocalist on pal Amanda Palmer's new concept album, headlines swirled that the 17-year-old daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love was following in her parents' musical footsteps.
Not so fast.
"She's got a great voice," Palmer says. "But she's a really good visual artist. She's really interested in graphic novels."
Cobain was intrigued by Palmer and fellow musician Jason Webley's concept for the album, Evelyn Evelyn, which focuses on twin singer-songwriter duo. Palmer was impressed with Cobain for more than her singing.

Courtney Love has never been shy about speaking her mind, and the rocker is characteristically unabashed in a new interview with Spin magazine.
When asked about daughter Frances Bean, 17, who currently has a restraining order against her mom, Love points a finger at the family of her late husband Kurt Cobain.
"Those snarly-ass O'Connors want checks," she says in Spin slated to hit newsstands Feb. 23, referring to her late husband's family. "I'm through supporting their asses."
Cobain's mother, Wendy O'Connor and his younger sister, Kimberly, currently have legal, medical and financial authority over the teenager.

She's aware that she is the rock 'n' roll mom many love to hate. "Say the name Courtney Love to a stranger and they're liable to respond, 'That horrible woman!' " the Hole singer, 45, tells Dazed and Confused magazine.
But with over 7,000 followers on Twitter and a much-anticipated new record, it's obvious folks can't seem to get enough of her. Especially when she's going off about family issues, like her recent loss of custody of daughter Frances Bean Cobain, an issue that's still in flux, as far as Love is concerned.
"The past few years have been Frances and me against the world," she says.
