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.

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.

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 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."

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."
