frances bean cobain home intruder

Frances Bean Cobain had a lucky escape Wednesday when she came face to face with an intruder in her home.

TMZ report that she was home alone in her bedroom at her house in Hollywood Hills, when she heard a noise.  It was about 7pm and she went to check on the noise and saw a guy running out her front door!

The terrified daughter of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain called the cops immediately but the suspect escaped without taking anything.  Frances Bean told cops that she did not recognize the guy.

It's a tough time for the 23 year old—she recently filed for divorce from her husband of 18 months, Isaiah Silva and may end up having to pay spousal support, although court documents made it clear that her father's estate will not be touched.

On the upside though, Frances Bean's troubled relationship with her mother appears to have taken a turn for the better recently after a six year estrangement, she's been pictured hanging out with Love a few times this week and supported her at an In Conversation event as part of the Liberatum's Women in Creativity series in London.

frances bean cobain divorce 450 million dollar estate

Francis Bean Cobain has filed for divorce after 21 months of marriage, and has moved to protect the $450 million estate left to her by her father, Kurt Cobain.

In documents filed at the Los Angeles Superior Court, Cobain asks that all premarital assets be awarded to her as separate property.

She is currently paying spousal support to her husband, creepy Cobain look-alike Isaiah Silva, a musician. According to the documents, they married in June 2014 in a private ceremony. However, tabloids reported on the wedding in September, and noted that the guests did not include Cobain's mother, Courtney Love.

The Wrap reports that irreconcilable differences were cited as the reason for the divorce. They quote the divorce papers as reading:

Petitioner requests that all gifts, inheritance, bequests and all other pre-marital assets, and all of her post-separation earnings, and acquisitions … be awarded to her as her separate property.

In the last few days, Frances has been seen out and about with Love, after many years of notorious estrangement. Perhaps she has turned to her mother for support. In any case, the pair looked relaxed together, a good sign after so much acrimony..

Frances was instrumental in the making of Montage of Heck, the highly rated 2015 documentary about her father, who died when she was only two years old.

Frances Bean Cobain Talks Dad Kurt’s Suicide, ‘Complex Relationship’ With Courtney Love

When the film came out, Frances and her mother gave separate interviews that revealed the wide gulf between them. At that time, Frances did not seem eager to patch things up.

Some Frances Cobain watchers worried about her relationship with Silva, who she began dating in 2010 and whose resemblance to Kurt is quite striking. She has been the object of much speculation, including worries about her fragile looking physique and supposed plastic surgery.

With Courtney Love ceaselessly fighting her own demons in the public eye, young Frances has not had much in the way of parental role models. She has complained in interviews about being treated as an extension of her father, whose tragic suicide at age 27 earned him icon status in the world of Rock music.

She is also on record as not being much of a Nirvana fan.

Hopefully, Frances had some kind of prenuptial agreement with her husband. But if not, she will have the best legal representation money can buy.

Frances Bean Cobain looked like she would rather be ANYWHERE ELSE in the world than standing next to her mother last night.

The artist/musician posed for photos with Courtney Love on the red carpet for the premiere of Montage of Heckthe new HBO documentary about Kurt Cobain that Frances executive produced—and to say the couple looked super awkward would be an understatement.

As Popdust previously reported, Frances and Courtney have had a tumultuous, and fractured, relationship over the years—culminating in the 22-year-old taking out a restraining order against Love in 2009, alleging in court documents that her mom existed on a diet of prescription drugs and cigarettes, was a conspiracy theorist and hoarder, and that she once threatened to jump off a balcony while Frances was watching.

Last week, Courtney sat down for an interview with V Magazine, during which she claimed she was “vilified” for marrying the late Nirvana frontman, and that working on the documentary had brought her and Frances “closer together.”

Judging by the body language last night though, it appears Frances isn’t on the same page as her 50-year-old mom—as she seemingly reluctantly stood by her side, pulling away slightly as Love attempted to embrace her.

Unable to muster a smile, at times poor Frances appeared more like a hostage being held against her will, her eyes screaming “Help! Get me away from this nut job!”

The face says gorgeous, the eyes say "help!"

Ah, families…..As the great Desmond Tutu once said, “You don’t chose your family, they are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.”

Yes, indeed…..

Montage of Heck premieres May 4 on HBO GO—watch the trailer below and check out Popdust’s gallery of photos from the documentary.

It was inevitable we were going to hear from Courtney Love sometime before the documentary about her late husband, Kurt Cobain, premiered on May 4.

As Popdust previously reported, the couple’s daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, executive produced Montage of Heck, which documents the Nirvana frontman’s childhood, music career, and untimely death, by suicide, in 1994, when he was just 27-years old.

Love sat down for an interview with filmmaker, Brett Morgan, who directed Montage of Heck, and talked in depth about all the personal memories that were triggered by the documentary, why she agreed to cooperate and provide access to Cobain’s personal archives—and, why she chose to stay out of the  film (for the most part).

The 50-year-old sets the record straight about how she and Cobain met—he wrestled her to the floor backstage at the Satyricon in Portland, Oregon, in 1989, after she insulted his girlfriend and was mean to him, then pretty much stalked him (figuratively) until she got her man—and, about how she was “vilified” after marrying him.

Just marrying the guy created a mythology around me that I didn’t expect for myself, because I had a very controlled, five-year plan about how I was going to be successful in the rock industry. Marrying Kurt, it all kind of went sideways in a way that I could not control and I became seen in a certain light—a vilified light that made Yoko Ono look like Pollyanna—and I couldn’t stop it.

Love claims she initially had no intention of actually seeing the documentary, but was ordered to do so by her agent, something she’s ultimately grateful for, as it brought her closer to her daughter (whom she’s had a very fractious relationship with over the years, culminating in Frances taking a restraining order out against her mom back in 2009 )

I asked Frances to come [see the documentary] with me and she didn’t want to see it a second time because it had been, for her own reasons, harsh on her. He died when she was a year-and-a-half old, so she doesn’t know him except for the way the public knows him. It was such a public death, and for that generation it was the JFK moment, if you will. Everyone knows where they were.

So, to see it in that room with my daughter was very cathartic and I was very happy to spend a little time with him and to find out, to see things and hear audio, and see into his heart. It was an important moment of bonding between Frances and me, and I think it’s very healing for our family and for our relationship.

However, not surprisingly, it wasn’t all joy and happiness, as Love reveals she was “really fucked up” by all the memories the documentary inevitably threw up—including her and Kurt’s amazing sex life.

I remembered the sexual relationship, which, as you know, is the core of any good marriage. It almost rendered other intimacies meaningless. I remembered how much I love him, and it made me really think about a few other people I don’t want to name, but a few other people I’ve been in love with. And should I have married them? The answer is actually no.

Nobody else was as funny. Nobody was as compatible and got my jokes. And you can see it in the film. Neither of us really liked the whole “Courtney is the bad guy” thing. He fucking hated it as much as I did because it shamed him, it emasculated him, and it made him look weak.

He is considered to be the rock star who didn’t want fame, the weak pathetic guy who was taken over by this controlling female, and yadda yadda. It kind of fucked me up, and to be honest with you, I don’t have a boyfriend right now, so I’m single.

But, according to Courtney, although she will always love Kurt, the documentary did help her evaluate what she wants in a relationship going forward.

 [The film] made me really evaluate what, at the age of 50, I want out of a relationship. He’s a hard act to follow. I love him and I always will.

You can see Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck May 4 on HBO GO—in the meantime, check out Popdust’s gallery of photos from the documentary, and watch the poignant trailer below.

Considering her genes, Frances Bean Cobain appears to really have her shit together.

The 22-year-old is an executive producer of the new HBO documentary on her late dad's life, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck—and, in a new interview with Rolling Stone, she opens up about his suicide, life after his death, Nirvana and her “complex" relationship with mom, Courtney Love.

As Popdust previously reported, Frances took out a restraining order against Love in 2009, alleging in court documents that her mom existed on a diet of prescription drugs and cigarettes, was a conspiracy theorist and hoarder, and that she once threatened to jump off a balcony while Frances was watching.

Following their estrangement, Frances moved in with her paternal grandmother, Wendy O'Connor, and aunt, Kimberly Cobain, and back in 2010, the then-18-year-old inherited 37% of her dad's estate—estimated to be worth around $75 million.

Considering her substantial wealth and punk rock heritage—Love once admitted in an interview with Elle magazine, that she took heroin throughout the first trimester of her pregnancy—the aspiring singer/artist appears to be remarkably grounded and down to earth.

Not surprisingly, Frances' feelings surrounding her father's 1994 suicide, which occurred when she was just two-years old, are complex and conflicted.

"Kurt got to the point where he eventually had to sacrifice every bit of who he was to his art, because the world demanded it of him," she tells Rolling Stone. "I think that was one of the main triggers as to why he felt he didn't want to be here and everyone would be happier without him.

“In reality, if he had lived," Frances continues, "I would have had a dad. And that would have been an incredible experience."

“Even though Kurt died in the most horrific way possible, there is this mythology and romanticism that surrounds him, because he's 27 forever," she says later in the interview. “The shelf life of an artist or musician isn't particularly long. Kurt has gotten to icon status because he will never age. He will always be that relevant in that time and always be beautiful."

“My dad was exceptionally ambitious. But he had a lot thrown on him, exceeding his ambition. He wanted his band to be successful. But he didn't want to be the f**king voice of a generation."

Meanwhile, Frances cops to not being much of a Nirvana fan, admitting she's more into “Mercury Rev, Oasis, Brian Jonestown Massacre."

However, she admits to crying every time she hears Dumb, from Nirvana's In Utero, explaining, “It's a stripped-down version of Kurt's perception of himself – of himself on drugs, off drugs, feeling inadequate to be titled the voice of a generation."

“If Kurt had just been another guy who abandoned his family in the most awful way possible . . . But he wasn't," Frances says later, talking about life after her father's death. “He inspired people to put him on a pedestal, to become St. Kurt. He became even bigger after he died than he was when he was alive. You don't think it could have gotten any bigger. But it did."

Pick up the new issue of Rolling Stone to read the whole interview.

Frances Bean Cobain went and got herself all grown up!

The 21-year-old recently posted photos on Twitter that show she’s the absolute doppelganger of her late father, Kurt Cobain—and Popdust has the pics.

Sadly, Frances never really got know her father as he committed suicide April 5 1994, four months before her second birthday.

Frances Bean Cobain is the doppelganger of late dad Kurt!


Frances inherited 37% of her dad’s estate following his death—estimated to be worth around $75 million—but she clearly also inherited many of his physical traits too.

Considering her punk rock heritage—mom Courtney Love admitted in an interview with Elle magazine that she took heroin throughout the first trimester of her pregnancy—the aspiring singer/artist appears to be remarkably grounded and down to earth.

Frances Bean Cobain might be the spitting image of dad Kurt, but she has inherited mom, Courtney Love's pout!


That could be down to her very close relationship with her paternal grandmother, Wendy O’Connor and aunt, Kimberly Cobain, whom she lived with after becoming estranged from Courtney.

Frances actually took a restraining order out against Love in 2009 following a physical fight—alleging in court documents that her mom existed on a diet of prescription drugs and cigarettes, was a conspiracy theorist and hoarder and that she once threatened to jump off a balcony while Frances was watching.

Love has been attempting to rebuild their relationship ever since, however, she admitted during an interview with Howard Stern last year that she and Frances only have contact over the internet.
