Wendy O’Connor, Kurt Cobain’s mother, has been granted temporary custody of her grandchild (and Kurt’s daughter), Frances Bean Cobain. The court papers does not specify why Wendy O’Connor and Kurt’s sister Kimberly Dawn Cobain were granted the temporary guardianship, nor is Courtney Love mentioned by name.
Frances Bean Cobain is currently 17 years old. Her mother Courtney Love already lost custody of her between 2003 and 2005 due to Love having a drug overdose.
Frances Bean Cobain’s trust, which was set up by Kurt Cobain before he committed suicide in 1994, is still under control by Courtney Love.
