Court to Courtney: Stay Away From Frances

12/16/2009 2:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Courtney Love has not only lost legal control over her daughter-- Frances Bean Cobain -- TMZ has learned a judge has now issued a restraining order, prohibiting Courtney from having any direct or indirect contact with the 17-year-old.

Court to Courtney: Stay Away From Frances

Sources tell us the temporary restraining order was signed under seal.

As TMZ first reported, lawyers for the guardianship went into court last Friday, where a judge created a temporary guardianship on behalf of Frances Bean. The legal guardians are Wendy O'Connor, Kurt Cobain's mom, and Kimberly Dawn Cobain, Kurt's sister.

A hearing to make the restraining order permanent is set for January 5.

She's 17 and it should be her decision if she wants to see her mother or not, she's almost an adult. No court could ever keep me from my child.

Well debbie, unfortunatly its not up to you. She is still tecnicaly a child until 18. Obviously the courts feel that she is unsafe with her mother. And if you know anything about courtney love, you wouldnt be going against the judge on this one. She is spending all the cash kurt cobain left for his child and is a drug addict to boot. If the court tells you that you cant, there is nothing you could do. You will end up in jail if you disobey a court order and go see your child. I am totaly in agreement with the judge on this one. Its for the safety of kurts daughter.

The title should read "Court to Kourtney! Keep Granny Kris away from baby Mason!" This, in order to protect little Mason from Grandma Kris staring him in a sex tape.

The Truth    

This is a good thing. Courtney Love is a sociopath, a psychopath, and someone that should never have had a child nor raised a child. She's the WORST kind of mother. Hugs Frances - you'll be FINE now, and I hope you meet your mother's mother and that side as well since you're no longer in your crazy mother's clutches.

love her!    

Francis Bean I am so sorry you are going through this. I was raised by a bio polar skitzo and the only time my life wasn't hell was when she would run away. I too had to cut off all communication from my mother. She is untreated and refuses to get help. Bless you Francis.

Poor Frances. A selfish loser dad, who left her with a druggie for a mom. Like someone else said "a tough time all around."

Frances got out just in time. She's about to turn 18 and get a ton of money...that her mother would get if she happened to die like her father.

Anyone around this nut-case for too long will either blow their head off or get a restraining order.
