Courtney Love Fears Her Daughter Will Die Of Overdoe
Courtney Love fears her daughter will die of a drugs overdose.
The Hole singer – who has 17-year-old Frances Bean with late husband Kurt Cobain – admits she is concerned by the amount of money the teenager receives under the terms of the Nirvana frontman’s will, particularly as she no longer lives with her mother.
Courtney – who was banned from contacting Frances last year by a court – said: “She is going to be 18 on 15 August. Thank God, because then this whole palaver will be done. She lives in a mansion by herself. A 17 year old getting $40,000 a month is outrageous to me, that’s on top of them paying for the mansion.
“She lives with her nanny, and Grandma Wendy and Kim – Kurt’s mother and sister – live two doors down, but there’s no drug testing going on. It’s a lot of money for a normal person. It’s enough money to kill her, if she is doing drugs, enough money to be gone by the time she’s 22.”
Despite her concerns, Courtney also thinks Frances is too sensible to go off the rails and says the teenager has turned down many opportunities to become famous in her own right.
She told You magazine: “Frances is so beautiful, but she doesn’t want to be famous. She was offered the part of Bella in the ‘Twilight’ movies, and Tim Burton wanted her for ‘Alice in Wonderland’. But she wants to go to college: she’s very good at graphic novels. Frances will be fine, it’ll be fine.”
Courtney also revealed she is no longer the subject of a restraining order preventing her from contacting her daughter.
She explained: “We don’t speak on the phone, but we went to court so that we could start this thing called Family Wizard where our e-mails are monitored, so there’s no restraining order any more.”
