Frances Bean Cobain says mom Courtney Love killed the family pets
Court papers reveal bizarre hoarding, pill-popping behavior
Courtney Love is described as an unstable maternal figure, in newly released deposition papers filed by her daughter in 2009 seeking a restraining order against the troubled rocker.
Frances Bean Cobain, now 19, says Love’s wreckless behavior even caused the death the family dog and cat.
The cat died after getting entangled in Love’s messy piles of ‘Etsy fabrics, boxes of paperwork, trash and other possessions,” according to the court papers, while the dog swallowed several of Love’s stash of prescription pills.
In order to ensure that no other pets would fall victim to Love’s pill-popping habits, Cobain included her dog, Uncle Fester, on the restraining order which was granted.
Among those Love, 47, was ordered to avoid contact with include Cobain, Uncle Fester, Cobains’ grandmother and her aunt.
In the papers, originally obtained by The Fix, Cobain also laments Love’s worrying drug use.
“(She) has taken drugs for as long as I can remember,” Cobain said. “She basically exists now 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.”
Cobain initially filed the restraining order against her mommy dearest in the L.A. Superior Court in December 2009 following a physical fight between the two.
At the time, Cobain spoke out about another bizarre incident that occurred several years before. Cobain claimed Love dragged her to the home of Love’s former boyfriend, James Barber.
“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,” Cobain said in the sworn statement.
“His children were inside the house, but that did not stop my mother.”
Mother and daughter have had a rocky relationship since the restraining order was granted.
But Cobain is trying to move on with her life. She became engaged to The Ramgles singer Isaiah Silva in October and they are looking forward to their upcoming nuptials.
“Getting to spend the rest of my life loving my best friend makes me the luckiest woman in the world,” Cobain wrote on her Facebook at the time.Source
