Kurt Cobain’s family has been trying to take custody of Frances Bean for years, his uncle tells TMZ, because Courtney Love “can barely take care of herself”—and is certainly “not fit to take care of Frances.” As of yesterday, Love not only lost custody of her daughter—she also lost the right to contact her, thanks to a judge’s temporary restraining order, which could become permanent Jan. 5.
