Frances Bean Cobain’s Terrifying First Art Show: She Claims Satan Is One Of Her Influences!

Is Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s daughter growing up to be as screwed up as her parents? All signs point to yes!

Frances Bean Cobain is clearly taking after her parents when it comes to a love of the arts: the 17-year-old daughter of deceased Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Hole singer Courtney Love has created her first art exhibit – and from the looks of her charcoal sketches, she’s going through some major internal drama!

We already knew that Frances has a majorly screwed up family history. She was just two years old when her dad committed suicide in 1994. Her mom hasn’t fared much better – after struggling with drug abuse for years, the now-46-year-old lost custody of Frances for two years back in 2003 after overdosing on painkillers and threatening to commit suicide. Francis finally won emancipation from Courtney in 2009.

After all that, it’s not a shocker that the poor girl – who’s showing her art at LA’s La Luz de Jesus gallery under the pseudonym Fiddle Tim – has got a dark side – just like mom and dad. From what we’ve seen, her drawings are totally disturbing, with contorted faces and expletive-heavy text like, “I don’t owe you s—t,” “Goat S—t,” and “Treat Me Like Your Mother or I’ll Eat the Sun.” And it gets even darker! On the website for Frances’s show, she says that Satan is one of her influences!

So what will become of Frances Bean? Is she headed for inevitable disaster – or is she just expressing herself through art?
