LATEST: Courtney Love's drug problems have led to her losing custody of her 11-year-old daughter FRANCES BEAN.

Love's only child, conceived with late husband Kurt Cobain, has been living with the former Nirvana frontman's mother WENDY O'CONNER since her 2 October (03) arrest on misdemeanour drug charges.

And her battle to regain custody of her offspring has proved unsuccessful.

According to Love's stepfather, the former Hole frontwoman appeared in a Los Angeles court on Tuesday (21OCT03), where a judge ordered her to move out of her Beverly Hills home for Frances to move back with a nanny.
