Frances Bean Cobain Wants to Live with Grandmother

Courtney Love has lost legal control over her daughter, but it's not because of a drug relapse as has been speculated, her lawyer tells PEOPLE.

"Courtney's been clean for years and is perfectly fine," says her attorney Keith A. Fink. "This is simply about Frances preferring to live with her grandmother at this time."

On Friday, a judge appointed Kurt Cobain's mother Wendy O'Connor and her daughter Kimberly Cobain as temporary legal guardians over Frances Bean. A hearing on the matter is set for Feb. 10.

Courtney Love Loses Legal Control of Daughter

Courtney Love is losing control. But this time it involves her most precious possession: her daughter.

A Los Angeles court has appointed temporary guardians over Frances Bean, 17, although the reasons are not immediately clear. Kurt Cobain's mother, Wendy O'Connor and his younger sister, Kimberly, now have legal, medical and financial authority over the teenager. A court hearing on the matter has been scheduled for February 10.

"This doesn't necessarily mean that Courtney Love is an unfit mother and has completely lost custody," says L.A. probate attorney Jeffrey S. Cohen, who's not involved with the case. "It's too early to say. It could be because she's simply going out of state for a long period of time."

Courtney Love Slapped With $1 Million Lawsuit

Originally posted 07/23/2008 10:05AM

Rabblerousing rocker Courtney Love is being sued for $1 million by a business management and accounting firm that claims she never paid them its share of profits from the sale of Nirvana's publishing catalog.

Love's late husband Kurt Cobain, who committed suicide in 1994, was Nirvana's lead singer.

A five-page lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court Tuesday by the L.A.-based London & Co. claims Love sold a portion of Cobain's share of Nirvana's publishing catalog for $19.5 million, the Associated Press reports.

London & Co. alleges Love, 44, broke a verbal contract to share five percent of any of her earnings or those from her company, The End of Music, and that its share from the sale would have been $975,000.

Reps for Love did not respond to AP's requests for comment.

Clay Aiken, move over. There's a new Broadway baby on the horizon.

Frances Bean Cobain, 15, the daughter of Courtney Love and late grunge legend Kurt Cobain, is headlining as the star of Evita, Grease and Beauty and the Beast – all for a fashion spread in the March issue of Harper's Bazaar.

Still, the backdrops are appropriate, says her mother. "Frances grew up on musicals. I think musicals comfort her," Love, 43, tells the magazine. "She's a gay man trapped in a woman's body, like me."

Courtney Love may be looking to buy a home in the Big Apple, according to her MySpace blog.

"I think/hope we found the PERFECT PLACE," Love wrote Wednesday in an online entry rife with spelling errors.

The Hole singer is eyeing a four-story West Village home, which she says is "a great investment."

Love says two floors of the building are currently being rented by the owners, but she'd eventually like to make it into a single-family home again. "It'll cost … a lot … to return it to a house, but FBC (Love's 15-year-old daughter, Frances Bean) doesn't need to have all that space 'til she moves here at 18."

It's not clear from the blog entry if Love, who currently splits her time between L.A. and London, plans to live in the home as well.

She may be known for her wild antics and trouble with the law but Courtney Love is trying her best for daughter Frances Bean.

Love, 43, says in a new U.K. magazine interview that she recently let 15-year-old Franny (as she calls her) go out alone with a daughter of rocker Sting – only to find out it was to see a film about suicide.
