Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of Courtney Love and late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, is celebrating turning 18-years-old. Born in 1992 and allegedly named after THE VASELINES frontman FRANCES MCKEE, Cobain was quickly removed from her parent's custody by child services over accusations that Kurt and Courtney were drug abusers. Although custody was regained shortly after, chaos ensued, as on the 8th April 1994, her father took his own life at their home in Seattle, and complications began to arise over Love's custody of Frances.
Last year, Frances' mother was banned by a court from contacting her daughter, but recently revealed to Britain's You Magazine that the arrangement has since been amended, the Hole singer said, "We don't speak on the phone, but we went to court so that we could start this thing called Family Wizard where our e-mails are monitored, so there's no restraining order any more". She went on to comment on Frances' career plans, stating, "Frances is so beautiful, but she doesn't want to be famous. She was offered the part of Bella in the Twilight movies, and Tim Burton wanted her for Alice in Wonderland. But she wants to go to college: she's very good at graphic novels. Frances will be fine, it'll be fine."
Cobain exhibited some of her artwork in July 2010, at the La Luz De Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles. Under the pseudonym Tim Fiddle, she presented numerous charcoal sketches, the centre-piece of which was a portrait of American punk musician G.G.ALLIN.
