Some moms say it with a Hallmark card, but Courtney Love addressed her estranged daughter's 18th birthday via Twitter, in a nonstop series of tweets that were both anguished and bitter.
Love began her hours-long plea by urging Frances Bean Cobain to flee the court-appointed guardianship of her late father Kurt Cobain's mother Wendy and sister Kimberly.
"i have prayed youd get mad at them not run to them," Love wrote, adding that her deceased husband despised his mother. "i love you but your 18 now do NOT allow any guardianship to continue whatsoever! theyll lie to you tell you it has to,. no it doesnt!"
The singer was mostly concerned about Frances' finances, and the trust fund she just inherited. "for gods sake now that your of age run like hell," Love wrote, then alluded that Frances was being swindled by lawyers. "they have to give you by law 30k a mionth no matter what not 15k seen your legal bills?"
Though Love - who is no stranger to Twitter tirades - accused Frances of ruining her life through her actions, she ultimately wants her daughter back in her arms.
"i long for your kiss and your sweet head smell i long for you i ache for you, i die for you every day my heart breaks for you," she wrote. "just come home,. it took a year but i got the sickest townhouse in the village, theres 4 floors, just come home, i pray to god snap out of it."
Hi there, I discovered your website via Google at the same time as looking for a comparable matter, your website came up, it seems good. I've bookmarked to my favourites|added to bookmarks.
So much hate, after all these years! What did she ever do to any of you?
What did she do to us?? She killed Kurt Cobain, for starters.
I don't blame Frances. She knows that her mom wants her money. I am pretty sure that by now, she has figured out that her dad didn't commit suicide. Mom "helped".
She may have played the "tortured artist" role to death (almost literally, as did Kurt), but can't we let her reconcile with her daughter as she sees fit. If her daughter rejects her offer to live in her "mad townhouse", maybe it will show both Courtney and the world that Frances is an adult who can make her own decisions. I am always concerned about family court decisions that make a parent a pariah. As crazy as Courtney seems, there are times when family should be kept intact, or at least on civil terms with one another. It might do both parties some good for tem to be in contact other than thru twitter, as it posts your thoughs to the world, and this might need some private exchanges to deal with issues.
Just read all the comments and wow people are really full of hate . I agree with the person above me mind your buisness . You are not in their life to make such rude remarks. Its kinda sad actually and I hope Courtney and her daughter one day settle all this <3
I think people should just leave them alone. I mean, it's Frances' life, and she'll do what she wants to do with it. And all you "die hard Nirvana fans" Kurt HATED people who said stuff about his wife like that. He would appreciate it if you left his family alone. He would like to have been known as a songwriter, not a stupid god.
And yes, Courtney's life may be messed up, but that doesn't mean you have the right to make her feel worse about it, all you idiot people who lie on a couch reading Vanity Fair all day. And Frances wouldn't like you to talk about her parents that way.
GET A LIFE AND MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS.
I'm so glad that you are such close, personal friends with this family. And judging from all the stupid things Courtney Love does, I think she would like for us to mind her business as well as our own.
Courtney had Kurt murdered....run away while you can Francis!!!!!
Courtney can add stalker to her list of accomplishments.This TOXIC woman needs to get a clue.
Can anyone say.... BI POLAR
Run Frances run... your mom is a head case.
Frances needs to go to college, FINISH college, drop the "Bean AND Cobain" Then.... she will have a much better chance (than her loser parents) at having a success, happy life. TEAM FRANCES!
FREE FRANCES BEAN!
Anyone remember that?
I'm almost glad Kurt didn't live to see this.
And to all you Nirvana haters GTFO Nirvana was WAY better than my generation's music.
The daughter is one smart cookie. Good.
I've never really been a fan of neither Nirvana or Courtney Love, but I've always felt sorry for her and Kurt. It's tragic that she is estranged from her daughter, considering that Courtney was estranged from her family at a young age as well. Let's hope Frances breaks this awful cycle.
she "long for your kiss and your sweet head smell " her sweet head smell?!?!?!?! that's disgusting the kid is 18 yrs old not 18 months old.
She said "head". Heh, heh, heh.
greenday was better than nirvana
Way to stay on the topic! Did you sneak on to your mother's computer again? Bad David! Bad David Davidson!
That's pretty sad......pleading via twitter ?? To lose custody the way she did is very sad.Courtney was a drug addict,Kurt committed suicide....the poor kid.Thank goodness she had his family to help raise her. Hopefully mother & daughter can reunite in a healthy way....Peace....
Courtney wants her back because she is getting her inheritance. Thats all. Courtney wants the money to snort it in her nose.
Since when did it become acceptable to use "your" in place of "you're"?
these are quick posts, people just type them on the fly, no one really cares that much about that stuff, you need to get with the game. If you cant think of anything interesting/funny to post, then dont be the fun police. I feel bad for your mate, you must be a real pain.
Around the same time it became acceptable to describe your home as 'sick' and stalk your estranged daughter via twitter.
... Cuz every teenager needs thirty thousand dollars a month at her disposal. The only people that are looking out for her best interests are the people who are teaching her boundaries and limits.
Poor Frances Bean. : (
For once I kinda have to side with C. Love on this. the bottom line is she just has her daughter's best interests in mind. Good for her.
heh, she has NEVER had Frances's best interests at heart. Only her own. She is money hungry, and that is the ONLY reason she wants her to move back home. Luckily Frances is supposed to be starting college this fall in N.Y. Cant remember the name of the University but it's Ivy League-ish. How could ANYone live with that drama mama and keep their sanity? Frances has done a remarkable job maintaining hers, I'd say.
Ahh the backlash of the whiney 90's. Better late than never. Besides, nothing gets the point across like the situation Courtney and Francis are in. Congratulations, Courtney. You are a mother to one just like yourself. How does it feel?
.... I think I'm gonna go call my mom and tell her how awesome she is. Poor Frances Bean. :\
Courtney Love is a drug-addicted idiot. Remember her on The David Letterman Show? Yes...My point exactly.
Whatever. She was great in the roles where she played herself – a drugged out loser. It wasn't acting.
The shame of it is that Courtney Love was a great talent. If she could have stayed off drugs, I think she was on her way to an Academy Award one day.
And yes... Pearl Jam rocks.
Bi-otch... be a good parent for once and leave her alone. You're lucky she's not more f'ed up because of your lousy @$$. I have mad respect for Kurt's talent, but he was an f'ed up mess too, so by telling everyone how much he hated his mother probably means she's the only normal, mentally stable person in your daughter's life. Leave her alone and go away. If you really loved her, you would.
Sam – I agree - Pearl Jam has ALWAYS been better
Who is this Nirvana?
Well, there's a healthy situation.
Pearl Jam is better
Pearl Jam is better than Courtney Love on Twitter? What other genius remarks can you bless us with?
kind of sad though..she misses her daughter & loves her a lot still.
If I had to live with that (Courtney Love), I'd have killed myself too.
Yeah, I hear what your saying, but if you think about it, she was pretty hot back in the day.
Yeah Larry....she was real hot back in the day (sarcasm)
Thanks to Courtney Love I will never be tempted to do drugs, because if it leads to that! Hell no.
toooo much blo!!!!
Seriously Courtney, lay off the drugs. The world is sooo sick of your antics and tyrades... It's sickening. Your daughter is an adult now, and if she should run from anyone, she should be fleeing from you...
Um... whatever happened to telephone calls or letters? Seriously... This Twitter crap is out of control.
Courtney Love is nutso.
agree on both counts...
I agree. People just don't communicate through phone or letters anymore, even an email would suffice. Nowadays it's all about communicating on twitter and facebook. It is getting out of control.
its a shame Kirk isnt still around...we barely heard about her when he was alive.
Hey RUSH.... It is KURT not Captain Kirk..... Get it right... The man is a legend
Kirk?!? that is unforgiveable. you should be banned from listening to Nirvana for life.
Being banned form Nirvana music is not a bad thing.
This attention ho-bag is just looking to get her money on th ekid's money for meth/crack/coke.
Who's Nirvana? Never heard of them.
@Indy It should be Kirk. As in KIRK COBAIN and he could of actually been named for Captain James T. Kirk, who will be the Commanding Officer of the USS Enterprise in 2264. so suckit
Um, no Rush, it's Kurt. Kurt Cobain. Where did you even get Kirk?? Sigh..... Such a shocking thing that someone writes something without research.
Wow RUSH... that seems similar to a 3rd grader saying "Noooooo, you're stupid." Nice comeback (sarcasm).
You really gonna give people from Aberdeen, Washington credit for the ability to correctly spell the name they meant to give their kids?
No, Rush it's Kurt. Sorry but your WRONG
You guys are the morons, I said it should be Kirk, only a moronic mother names here kid Kurt. Thats like spelling Tom with a U or something stupid. Get your facts straight, most of you are just repeating what the last person said. If you cant add anything new (good or bad) to the post then rub one out while you think of your hero KURT. Nanana na na
Rush, that is why he isn't around.
I see dumb people...
Kurt..That's a fabulous name. Fabulous, isn't that a rich rapper? The rappers..not Like a gum wrapper. Geesh! Tan Like A Beach tan. Like, Like Oh My God!
well, my friends and i called him turd nobrain... probably cuz he died that way
How embarassing. This is why you don't "friend" your mom on the Internet.
but she has got the nicest townhouse in the area.. lol
Just take the money and don't look back.. If you listen to the message in the music, that's sums it up.
