A little too late

Courtney Love lost legal custody of her 17-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain last Friday. Wendy O’Connor, Kurt Cobain’s mom, and Kimberly Dawn Cobain, Kurt’s sister, have been appointed legal guardians. This was decided in court without Courtney present. TMZ says the guardianship was established after a fairly long period of unstable conduct by Courtney Love.

This should have happened years ago. In less than a year, Frances will legally be an adult. This is like locking up a serial killer one day before he’s about to die. Courtney has been crazy forever now. Yet it was only last week that the court decided a steady diet of insanity doesn’t really help build a sound body and mind. Being raised by her must have been terrifying. Between Courtney trying to convince her that cat food is a French cuisine and the nonsensical rants on Twitter and MySpace, it’s amazing that Frances isn’t cutting off her hair and banging 30-year-olds.
