Rock star Courtney Love has lost custody over her daughter Frances Bean Cobain. Two legal guardians have been appointed to care for Frances Bean, Love's 17-year-old daughter with the deceased Nirvana front man, Kurt Cobain, CNN has confirmed.The only question here is what took so damn long?
According to legal documents originally obtained by TMZ.com, the court has appointed Kurt Cobain's mother, Wendy O'Connor, and his sister, Kimberly Dawn Cobain, to watch over the minor.
Geraldine Wyle, an attorney for O'Connor and Cobain, confirmed to CNN that an order of temporary guardianship has been granted to her clients and said the issue was a "private family matter."
A court hearing has been scheduled on the issue for February 10.
This is not the first time that Love has been in court to discuss issues within her family.
In 2003, Frances Bean was temporarily placed under the care of O'Connor after Love was arrested and accused in an attempted break-in at an ex-boyfriend's home, overdosed on painkillers and made a suicide threat. Love admitted a misdemeanor charge of being under the influence of a controlled substance. She regained custody in 2005.
