These are photos of Courtney Love hugging her estranged daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, at Sundance. They both attended the premiere of the Kurt Cobain documentary, Montage of Heck. Frances is now 22 years old. Does that make you feel ancient? She seems to have a solid head on her shoulders despite her mom.
Frances and Courtney have a storied history that culminated in Frances cutting off contact several years ago. Frances has seen a lot of crap in her short life. One particularly sad story came out during the emancipation court procedure. Frances said her cat died after getting lost in Courtney’s hoarding piles, and her dog followed a similar fate after finding mom’s pill supply. In this documentary, Courtney reportedly reveals that much of what you heard about her is true. She admits to using heroin during her pregnancy with Frances: “I used it once, then stopped. I knew she would be fine.”
Courtney seems surprisingly lowkey about putting Frances at risk, which is sad. Luckily for everyone, Frances was fine. All of this confirms what Courtney previously admitted to Vanity Fair in 1992 (via LA Times archival). In that feature, called “Strange Love,” Courtney bragged to a journo about how she “did heroin for a couple of months” during her pregnancy. Courtney was probably high during the interview, and she grew angry after publication. Courtney and Kurt released a statement claiming that VF published “many inaccuracies and distortions” about them, including the drugs stuff. But it was all true, and now Courtney thinks it’s okay. No wonder Frances took a vacation from “mom.”
Courtney’s pursing her acting skills lately. She shot an upcoming guest apperance on Empire. People raves about how Courtney looks great. She does look healthier, but she’s still a delusional liar.
