Oh, mom, not again.
Frances Bean Cobain lashed out at her mother Courtney Love for claiming on Twitter than her late husband Kurt Cobain's bandmate Dave Grohl had "hit on" Frances and that "she was curious."
"While I'm generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn," says Frances. "I have never been approached by Dave Grohl in more than a platonic way. I'm in a monogamous relationship and very happy."
Frances adds: "Twitter should ban my mother."

Though the couple went public with their engagement in October, little is known about the relationship between the daughter of the late grunge god Kurt Cobain, Frances Bean, and her fiancé, Isaiah Silva, frontman of rock band the Rambles.
"We're each other's everything," Silva, 26, tells PEOPLE about Cobain, 19, and himself. "We're homebodies. We don't go out to clubs so you won't find us stumbling out of them with Lindsay Lohan. We stay at home, read books and watch Arrested Development."
Adds band mate Mark Kuchel, "They're quiet and shy. They're a great couple. Frances comes to most of our shows that she can get into."

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.

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.

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."
