Courtney Love’s 17-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain will be living with her paternal grandmother for a while, and though it is not clear why, Courtney’s lawyer claims drugs don’t have anything to do with it.
“Courtney’s been clean for years and is perfectly fine,” Keith A. Fink, Courtney’s attorney said. “This is simply about Frances preferring to live with her grandmother at this time.”
Frances Bean’s paternal grandmother and aunt, Wendy O’Connor and Kimberly Cobain, will serve as her temporary legal guardians. Frances’ father is late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.
Frances was placed in the care of her grandmother after Courtney was arrested for trying to break into her ex-boyfriend’s home in 2003. She moved back with Courtney in 2005, and has been with her until now. (People)
