Courtney Love goes on an insane Twitter freakout for Frances Bean’s b-day

I’m not even sure I have the strength or the will power to write about Courtney Love’s neverending, batsh-t crazy, epic, tragic, FUBAR birthday tweet to her daughter, Frances Bean. You see, Frances turned 18 years old. And even though little Bean was already making decisions for herself – like choosing Kurt Cobain’s mom and sister as her guardians last year – Bean now has even more control over her estate, and her mom… well, I can’t even tell if Courtney is happy about that. Should I just present some of this stuff without comment? Eh. I don’t even have the will to actually cut and paste the tweets, so here are just some of the highlights, edited down because of profanity (you can read the whole freakout here, on Courtney’s Twitter)… read it bottom to top:

[From Courtney’s Twitter]

That about sums it up. Can you even imagine if your mother did this to you? It’s like Courtney is stroking out on Twitter, honestly. If I didn’t KNOW that Courtney was tweeting one-handed, with a crack pipe in the other hand, I would be worried. But Courtney adheres to my cockroach theory – the more consistently f-cked up a person is throughout the years, the more they’ll survive, year after year.

    Oh Courtney. When Court writes these incoherent tweets I am convinced she isn’t sober. Courtney really needs to be sober. I suppose Courtney is just really emotional that she isn’t apart of her child’s life and I would be to.

    If you ever get a chance to watch Courtney’s Behind The Music, do it, it was really good. Frances looks just like her mom when she was younger.

  2. LindyLou says:

    There are no words to describe this. It hurts my brain to try and read her rants. I can’t imagine poor Frances’ pain of having a totally off the rails mother. Good thing she got away and is getting therapy. Courtney needs to be locked up in a rubber room.

  3. Ruby Red Lips says:

    Poor Francis Bean..happy 18th from mummy dearest….

    CL is a great example of why DRUGS ARE BAD!!!!!

  4. whitedaisy says:

    Sometimes the ones who raise us are those most toxic to our well-being.
    If Frances determines that she needs a relationship of distance in order to find balance, then that is how it should be.
    If Courtney truly loves her, she will respect Frances’ choice and work on healing herself of her own demons. Then she can hope that with time the relationship might heal.

    These quotes really speak to their life together and why lil Bean felt she needed to cut all ties.

  6. georgef says:

    two terrific girls. I hope for the best!!!

  7. LindaR says:

    As you read it, you can see the escalation. It goes from asking why, to pleading for Frances to come home and then to anger and accusations. Typical of an abuser. It speaks to there having been so much more that went on then just witnessing a drug-addled, mental case and all the chaos that comes with it. Thankfully someone stepped in and said no more.

  8. LittleFATMe says:

    It’s the drink. They get all jacked up and drunk and then they are pickled. Can’t die. They last and last. Pickled. I know a crackie who falls down into creeks and falls off roofs and crashes his bike – at least one or two major issues a week – and he just lies there all night and all day (getting seriously sun burned) and when he wakes up he does it all over again. Pickled, I tell you!

  9. Eileen says:

    I read this last night on DListed. She is a total mental case. She is my mother if my mom was a cracked out hippie. But my mom doesn’t need drugs to do crazy shit-unfortunately. :/

  10. aenflex says:

    Here’s where I get mean. What a f*ucking b*tch this woman is for dragging her own child through her personal mental hells. What a f*ucking inconsiderate, selfish, self-centered, drug-addicted, hate-fueled, mental ingrate she is. I am seriously fuming. I knew this b*itch was crazy, but seeing intimately how she must’ve consistently put herself 1st, and tortured her child throughout her life, it really makes me despise her even deeper. Children are a blessing, they are their own little cosmoses, and f*cking with one should be crime. This woman (creature) clearly has no idea how the things she does/says probably pain Frances Bean to no end. Every child wants to love thier mother.

  11. SallyJay says:

    I think it’s disturbing but more than that, just profoundly sad for all involved. I grew up during the 90s and was a huge Kurt Cobain / Courtney Love fan – loved the music of both – and their particular brand of angst – what can I say, I was a kid! anyhoo, I think it’s desperately sad that things have turned out this way.

  12. Cam says:

    Does she know how to spell? Apparently not.

    English is not my native language but my spelling skills are better than hers, and that’s saying something.

    I couldn’t finish reading her tweets, they’re meaningless and scare the crap out of me. It hurts me that Francis Bean has to deal with CL’s mental illness, I’m just happy she’s not my mom. That woman needs to be locked up, seriously.

  13. mAnDa3 says:

    Wasn’t that a threat in the last sentence? Im just saying. Wow I don’t think that rant was right. I mean she is trying to win her daughter back right? Well that was not really the right way to go about it. She sounds crazy, like shes locked in her little dark room freaking out. I wish she could be happy. But was Courtney Love ever really happy? She claims this when Kurt was around and she had Bean. I Don’t know. I would probably try and avoid my mom if she were coming at me like that. And the way she said your dad hated his mom. Not a way to when your hurt daughters heart. They are both hurting tho. Clearly see Courtney, you know Bean misses her mom. Sadness. EDIT: Or maybe she doesn’t miss her mom. Would you miss the crazy drugged, drunked, flasher? I don’t think I would. I hope they get help. The whole family is screwed if you ask me.

  14. aenflex says:

    I have a passionate stance on child abuse, and I’m very sorry if my rant offended any reader. I’m serious, that was not my intent. I honestly just hate people who hurt children, phyiscal, mental, whatever. And what’s worse is the fact that this is the parent, the mother even, the one person who the child looks to for love and acceptance. I just hate her, and I can’t bring myself to remove my previous post, but I will agree that it could be offensive and I’m sorry for that.

  15. LolaBella says:

    FFS, am I the only one who uses spellcheck when I tweet??? Lol.

    Rants like these prove why Frances felt the need to sever ties with her own mother.

    CL is obviously under the influence of something because she is incoherent and coming across as batshit insane.

    Way to ruin your kid’s 18th B-Day.

  16. Green Is Good says:

    All I got from CL’s crazed rants is “ME ME ME ME!”.

    What a Narcissist CL is. “I raised you well”? WHEN? She lost custody of Frances at the age of FOUR! Way to rewrite history. No wonder Frances got a restraining order.

  17. Butch says:

    I saw a BBC doc about Courtney. I felt bad for the daughter then – Courtney talked about Buddhism and chanting everyday. She chanted for everyone (including L. Lohan and K. Moss) except for the health and well-being of her own daughter. Selfish? Absolutely. Money and nannies does not equate to good parenting.

  18. Audra says:

    O.M.G. Run! Frances Bean Run! Far away!

  19. Atticus says:

    Love Angelina – I saw the BTM on Courtney and agree, it was fascinating.

    This just makes me feel sad for all involved. I don’t think there was abuse per se but I think Frances found herself playing the mother role and rightfully didn’t want to, so she had to separate herself from Courtney so she (Frances) could have a shot at a life of her own. It’s remarkable that after the childhood she’s had, you never hear about Frances out partying like Lohan. Hopefully time will heal both Courtney and Frances. There must be loads of pain there.

    Aenflex – I don’t see anything wrong with your initial post. In fact, I agree with it. In particular “every child wants to love his/her mother” strikes a chord.

  20. Karen says:

    I know that Courtney Love is particularly insane, and I don’t use twitter, but I have noticed when I am linked to some celebrities twitter page or whatnot, that these “tweets” are almost entirely incomprehensible. Is it just me? Is there some new internet speak I am not privy to, or do these people just lack basic language skills?

  21. TQB says:

    Every time Courtney does this I am reminded of how angry I am that Cobain would selfishly take his own life, sentencing his child to a life with this woman as her only parent. I was a huge fan but 16 years later, I am still disgusted by this. He claimed to love Frances, wanted her to have a better childhood than he did. And he left her with THIS.

  22. Solveig says:

    I don’t have the guts to read Courtney’s nonsense ranting about her extranged daughter, but I feel very sorry for Frances Bean, her whole life spent without the love of her father and mother.
    Oh, Courtney, YOU are the one who is ruining your life and reputation… BITCH.
    *what reputation?*

  23. wonderful says:

    I know the Courtney Killed Kurt rumours are pretty well considered conspiracy theories, but look that one guy up (I forget his name – he had a weird wrestling alter-ego and was freaky looking) who claimed on tape to have been approached by Courtney to kill him, and before the documentary could even air he was killed in a “mysterious train accident”!!!!!!!! WHO IS KILLED IN A MYSTERIOUS TRAIN ACCIDENT? I never bought the whole tale but I found that detail highly suspect even on its own, even if Kurt really did kill himself.

  24. ChinaCat says:

    @aenflex: NO apologies necessary! I am with you 100%. This person (term used loosely) is a vile, disgusting waste of space and I wish she would just disappear (at least for the Bean’s sake!).

    … AND I’ve always thought she killed Kurt!

  25. elaine says:

    Bitch is crazy.

    For real.

  26. Taya says:


    I totally agree.

    Kurt only cared about himself. He was just like CL, a selfish, drug addict who did not give a shit about his child. KC and CL should have both died that day. Then Maybe Frances would have had a better childhood.

  27. Kiska says:

    @ TQB and Taya

    Kurt had suffered from severe mental illness and the drugs didn’t help. To say that he was selfish comes from a place of not understanding depression. Kurt never came across as selfish but a man in deep, deep pain and tortured by it.

  28. elvisgrace says:

    When Frances Bean decides to have Courtney committed, exhibit A:

  29. Victoria says:

    I think Frances looks just like her dad and when ever I see her I am reminded of an interview he did with her (baby) sleeping on his lap. When he picked her up there was pee all over his jeans (cloth diapers with no rubber pants) and he was like “Oh well”. So sweet! And yes Courtney will out live us all!

  30. original kate says:

    holy shit – the last time i saw a face like that it was crawling out of a tv set.

  31. GatsbyGal says:

    TQB and Taya – You guys took the words right off my keyboard. I couldn’t agree more. Depression or not, he was a selfish man who obviously didn’t care THAT much about the future of his child. He cared juuuust enough to think that maybe she was better off without him as a father, but he didn’t think it out too well, did he? And now his daughter is probably ruined for life because of he left her with Courtney Love.

  32. lola lola says:

    It’s horrid that she had custody of that kid for as long as she did. What a horror show of self-pity and the ever popular ‘its all about ME’ attitude. Run, Francis, Run.

  33. Erin says:

    Oh yes, just like Lohan she abuses the Adderall she claims to take. She has frequently said she is “sober”, but takes Rx meds including Adderall. When you take too much, and don’t need the drug in the first place, you tweet like this. Madness.

  34. Jeri says:

    It sounds like she’s worried about money, money she spent & money she won’t get to spend.

  35. mariex says:

    She sounds like its all about the money and getting her daughter (the money) back on her side. Why so much anger on Frances 18th birthday? The very birthday that legally gives Frances control of her own money. Is it because CL no longer has access to the funds to support her lavish and selfish lifestyle? Hmmm… All that financial advice between the chastisement for being an ungrateful daughter has nothing to do with Frances trust fund being pillaged or crack being expensive, right? What an a-h. I’m sorry I ever bought an album of hers.

  36. Ellie says:

    i could never do anything to frances that involved her personal public humilation like utah, or certain items that r private & wld ruiinher

    Ok – so that would exclude making abusive and frankly embarassing remarks on twitter then?

  37. CB Rawks says:

    “i could never do anything to frances that involved her personal public humilation like utah, or certain items that r private & wld ruiinher”

    That’s totally a threat against Frances. And also a lie since Courtney IS doing things to humiliate Frances. This, for example.

  38. Liana says:

    someday I hope someone gives Courtney the gift of sanity.

  39. srebrina says:

    ahahahaha I love LittleFATMe’S comment!
    PICKLED PEOPLE!!!!!!!!

  40. Chris says:

    WTF? Do you mean to say that rich and famous people aren’t happy all the time?

  41. beasweet says:

    re: aenflex, i’m so glad you kept your original post up. couldn’t agree more. courtney love is an abuser. it pisses me off to no end when she’s touted as a role model for feminism. her last album was awful. stay strong frances bean.

  42. Sam says:

    Poor Francis. she needs to get away from all of that insanity, and Courtney needs help. It breaks my heart to see an 18 year old kid go through this. that is a hard enough time, trying to figure out who you are, without this kind of abuse being hurled at you.
    Francis seems to be really together though (from what i can tell). She just needs to be strong and see that what her mom is like is exactly what she doesn’t want to be. Its the best anti-drug message she could get.
    I can’t imagine having no dad and courtney as a mom. poor girl.

  43. sabine says:

    I really believe that Courtney has a mental problem. And she’s a grown woman wanting to act like a 20 year old rockstar and it’s just sad at this point.
    She’s a mess.

  44. Anon says:

    you’re all forgetting a few things:

    1) you’re not in this. only Courtney and her daughter are, no matter tweets or media or whatever.

    2) you weren’t in the father’s depression, or the mother’s addiction, which affects every individual differently. Both are incredibly complex, f’d up, scary places to be, and it’s unfortunate that both people

    had a child while in the middle of both


    never got help

    3) we only see/hear/read stories. Until you live it, deal with their realities


  45. Jenn says:

    No, not stfu. Should Frances Bean ever surf the net, it is better she see that perfect strangers can recognize abuse when they see it, not just ignore it or whatever you are proposing. When people act in a shocking manner, as in CLs abusive tweets, they provoke a response. Her being an addict is sad but it doesn’t make her abuse any less real for her kid. Frances Cobain has never said anything mean about her mom. She decides to live elsewhere, and her mom publically accuses her of being a liar, deceptive, a sell out, and of ruining her mother’s life. Frances is incredibly strong to break free from someone who would tear down her own child in front of everyone — for nothing! For deciding to live with Grandma for awhile.
