Originally posted 10/27/2011 10:30AM

Is one of rock 'n' roll's most famous daughters ready to tie the knot?

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.

They each quietly changed their Facebook relationship status to engaged a few weeks ago, the paper says, and a source confirms their happy news of Cobain's engagement to PEOPLE. However, they have since changed their statuses back.

According to the report, the couple use fake names on Facebook – she goes by Frances Rachel Leigh Cook, he uses Isaiah David Berkowitz-Cusack. Screen shots of their Facebook pages also show comments that hint at an engagement.

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.

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.

"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.

Frances Bean Cobain is protected against her mother Courtney Love by a temporary restraining order – but why?

Although attorneys have revealed few details in the case, court documents released Wednesday speak generally of "personal problems in the family" and more specifically of "domestic violence."

There's no elaboration, and these disclosures came in a motion to seal documents in the case in which the court has stripped Love of legal control of her 17-year-old daughter with the late Kurt Cobain and appointed the teen's grandmother and aunt as temporary guardians.

When Courtney Love temporarily lost of custody of daughter Frances Bean Cobain last week, it was just the latest in a series of ups and downs in a mother-daughter relationship that has been fraught with drama since Frances was an infant.

Today, despite the suicide of her father, Kurt Cobain, in 1994, and her mother's past struggles with addiction and run-ins with the law, Frances is a "totally together" 17-year-old, a family friend told PEOPLE earlier this year. "She's really grounded and is really fun and sweet," adds the friend. "Courtney is extremely proud of her and would do anything to ensure her well-being."
