Frances Bean 'moves in with Faithfull'

Frances Bean Cobain has reportedly moved in with Marianne Faithfull.

The 18-year-old - who was recently released from her grandmother's guardianship - has planned to spend the next year at Faithfull's home in Paris while she works on her art.

A source told The Sun: "Frances has a strong relationship with Marianne.

"She's her Bohemian grandmother."

It was recently revealed that Frances received 40% of her father Kurt Cobain's estate upon her 18th birthday.


The way I understand it is that Frances is going to live at Marianne's apartment in Paris while she is off touring (in 2011) and recording her new album this fall. It's scheduled to be released in March 2011!

Isn't she? I was so thrilled to find Marianne related news to post! So happy for Frances to that she is getting away from Courtney.

*thumbs up* Good choice. :)

It seems like, despite all of her mother's influence and cray-cray, Francis is growing up to be an awesome person. I wish I could go live with Marianne for a year!

Me too! Love her so much and she is such a darling.

I wish she looked more like Kurt and less like Courtney. :(

I hope she shows her art, I admit I'm curious.

There was a post about it before with a few things she did.

Nice. I'm not gonna hate. I see potential in this one.

Veddy cool! If anyone can help her stay clean, it would be Marianne.

She's so pretty!

I love that she seems to have a really good head on her shoulders despite who her mother is.

Um wow good for her.

Weird.. in my surprise over liking the latest 'Hole' album, i thought Courtney sounded a bit like Marianne Faithful.
ballion 27th-Aug-2010 12:20 pm (UTC)
Oh, I absolutely agree. Her voice had a very Faithfull quality to it. Now if she could just finally get clean like Marianne did ...

"She's her Bohemian grandmother."

Yeah, whose biography reads like the template for Courtney Love's life, up and including the part about losing custody of her own kid.
ballion 27th-Aug-2010 01:42 pm (UTC)
but unlike Courtney Marianne has become clean and got a grip of her own life! Her relationship with her son is now better than ever.
para1 27th-Aug-2010 02:48 pm (UTC)
It took her decades to get to that point though, and at her worst she was a larger trainwreck than Courtney Love ever was. So the direct comparison won't do until Frances is forty-something and Courtney is or is not well enough to be someone's "cool gran".

If anyone can help Francis Bean understand her father's experience, it would be Marianne
