BREAKING: COURTNEY LOVE IS NOT A GOOD MOM
Guys, I have some really, really surprising, and upsetting, news to share. Maybe you should sit down for this one, ’cause it might be kinda hard to hear. But it’s gonna be okay. We’ll get through this together. I promise. Alright?
Are you sitting down? Okay. Good. Here we go.
Courtney Love has not been a very good mother to her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain.
Okay. It’s okay. I know it’s a shock. You can go ahead and cry if you need to.
See, in 2009, Frances Bean filed a restraining order against Courtney — yes, a a restraining order against her own mother. And, what’s worse, that restraining order not only restricted Love from coming near Frances Bean, but also from coming near Frances Bean’s grandmother or aunt (and for those of you playing along at home, yes, those are the same women whose finances Courtney was oh-so-concerned about back in November, when she accused Dave Grohl of being a greedy asshole who was taking money away from Kurt Cobain’s family), and, oh yeah, also from coming near the family dog. And why did the dog need protection? Well, according to newly released court documents:
“The cat died after getting entangled in Love’s messy piles of ‘Etsy fabrics, boxes of paperwork, trash and other possessions,’ (and) the dog swallowed several of Love’s stash of prescription pills.”
So, basically, the courts had to intervene to save the poor dog’s life.
And it turns out it’s really fun to be Courtney’s ex-boyfriend, James Barber, too:
“She took me in a taxi to his house in the middle of the night, and from outside the house, in her bare feet, she screamed at him, threw rocks at the house, and threatened to burn his house down… His children were inside the house, but that did not stop my mother.”
But what could possibly be the source of Love’s irrational behavior? I know what you’re thinking: “Too much coffee, right?” But it may actually be something slightly stronger, according to Frances Bean:
“(Love) has taken drugs for as long as I can remember… She basically exists on Xanax, Adderall, Sonata and Abilify, sugar and cigarettes. She rarely eats … She often falls asleep in her bed while she is smoking, and I am constantly worried that she will start a fire (which she has done at least three times) that will threaten our lives.”
I don’t believe it. I won’t believe it. I CAN’T believe it! Surely, these are the words of a spoiled brat who is lying through her teeth because she’s angry at Mommy. I mean, the court granted Frances Bean the restraining order, so they thought her claims had some validity, but I dunno, American Judicial System. I find that pretty hard to believe that THIS woman is on drugs:
See? Sober as a member of Mötley Crüe!
