Hole singer Courtney Love has lost custody of her daughter with her late husband Kurt Cobain. On December 11, 2009 custody of Frances Bean Cobain, 17, was given to Wendy O'Connor and Kimberly Dawn Cobain, Kurt's mother and sister, respectively. Love's lawyer has indicated that Frances chose to live with her grandmother, rather than being taken from her mother. O'Connor also had custody of Frances in 2003 and 2004. The custody issue will be revisited in February. Frances will be 18 in August. The court ruling does not give Frances' grandmother and aunt control over her trust fund.
