Now that Frances Bean is 18, she’s taking the money and running! Does your heart go out to desperate mom Courtney?
Some moms say “happy birthday” with a card. Courtney Love, however, has chosen to celebrate daughter Frances Bean Cobain‘s 18th birthday (which was Aug. 18) with an incoherent rant on Twitter. “Youve done a dammed good job frances of destroying anything i could build that is positive,” Courtney, 46, tweeted at her daughter Aug. 19. “why would you leave me and my life in tatters like this and get angrier and angrier to justify it, i feel you missing me and i miss you too.”
The lead singer of Hole continued on, begging her daughter — who has inherited her late father Kurt Cobain‘s massive fortune now that she’s turned 18 — to come home to her.
“just come home,” Courtney tweeted. “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. i love you little bean, but please stop this madness over so much more money than your little self can comprehend.”
For those of you unfamiliar with Courtney and Frances’ situation, allow me to bring you up to speed:
- Frances is the daughter of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain, who committed suicide in April 1994.
- Courtney had custody of Frances, until she lost it in Dec. 2009.
- The court placed Frances in the care of Kurt’s mom Wendy and sister Kimberly.
- Frances also got a restraining order against Courtney.
It’s a sad situation, for sure, but also a cautionary tale for all young moms in Hollywood. All the money in the world can’t make you a good parent. And once you’ve severed a relationship with your child, it’ll take some time for them to forgive you and come back.
So tell us, HollywoodLifers, does your heart go out to Courtney, or is this exactly the wake-up call she needs to clean up her act?
