“Domestic Violence” Mentioned in Courtney Love Court Files


First, Courtney Love lost legal custody (temporarily) of daughter Frances Bean Cobain. Then it was revealed Dec. 16 that a temporary restraining order banned the musician, 45, from having any contact with her only child, 17. (Frances' dad is the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.)

Now, a new motion makes mention of "allegations of domestic violence" in the case, E! News reveals.

Attorneys for Frances' paternal grandmother and aunt (her legal guardians at the moment) have requested that all records in the case regarding the rock-royalty daughter be sealed. The lawyers specifically request that Frances' "personal and medical information" and "allegations of domestic violence" be kept from the public record. No further details are provided regarding the "domestic violence" claim.

A judge is set to decide Jan. 5 whether to extend the restraining order for three additional years.

Bound by the restraining order, Love reached out to her daughter via Facebook Dec. 16, writing (with typos): "i very much miss my daighter, i know she knows how miserable i am im despairing and so sad, so so sad, but i just want to help her be happy, thats it, get her house and get her school and thats all ive ever wanted."
