Now that Frances Bean, daughter of Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain, will be turning 18 next year... the system has decided her mother is in no shape to care for a child. It somewhat shockingly took 17 years for this to happen. TMZ reports that "guardianships of this nature are frequently established when the parent is not capable of taking care of their children. The guardianship is for both Frances Bean personally and her financial well-being." Again, this took 17 years? Frances is now under the guardianship of Kurt's mom and sister (Wendy O'Connor and Kimberly Dawn Cobain, respectively), who will not have power over the trust established after Kurt's death. Both Courtney and Frances Bean have been living in the city; Courtney recording a new Hole album... and making out with DJ Qualls.
