Courtney Love loses custody of nearly adult daughter
It's been a tough year for singer/sometimes actor Courtney Love. First, she is accused of slandering someone on Twitter. Then she starts putting up rants on her Facebook page about actor Edward Norton and singer Britney Spears. But that's nothing compared to the hole she finds herself in now: On Friday, Kurt Cobain's widow lost custody of her 17-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain. Frances will now be under the control of her paternal grandmother and aunt. That means Wendy O'Connor and Kimberly Cobain will gain custody of Frances and her estate -- read Curt's money from the short glory days of Nirvana. She will remain in their custody until she turns 18 in August or unless Love regains custody before summer 2010. We're betting that Frances will be home free before that happens.
