Courtney Love - Courtney Love: Frances Leaving Was My Fault

Courtney Love blames herself for her estrangement from her daughter.

Frances Bean - the only child of Courtney and late Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain, who committed suicide in 1994 when she was just 20 months old - moved out of her mother's home in 2009 to be cared for by Kurt's family and Courtney thinks if she had been a better parent and encouraged Frances' hobbies they wouldn't have parted.

Speaking about Frances' inability to read until she was seven, Courtney told Vanity Fair magazine: "It was my fault. I never read to her. Why didn't I ever take her to a Broadway show? She f***ing loved those Broadway musicals!

"All I can feel is how much I love her. I'd give anything to hear the sound of her heels walking down the hall past my bedroom.

"I swore I'd never be like my mother but I'm just the same. She threw it all away and I threw it all away."

Courtney - who claims she has been cheated out of huge sums of Kurt's money - also revealed she always wanted to be famous because she thought it would make her happy.

She said: "Ever since I was a little girl. I wanted to be famous, because I thought, in the light, they'll be fair to me. I prayed to God I could grow up and be famous because then they'll be fair to me. Fair to me? Ha."
