Frances Bean Cobain Biography

Frances Bean Cobain was born on August 18, 1992 in Los Angeles, California so her age is 16. She is the only child of rockers Nirvana frontman the late Kurt Cobain, and Hole frontwoman Courtney Love.

Frances is named after Frances McKee from the Scottish band ‘The Vaselines’ but is often said to be named after Frances Farmer, a suicidal actress from the 1930’s. Her middle name is ‘Bean’ and was chosen because her dad Kurt Cobain thought she looked like a kidney bean on the ultrasound. Frances has famous godparents: her godfather is R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe, and Drew Barrymore is her godmother.

When Courtney Love was pregnant with Frances, there were tabloid rumors that she had been using heroine. This of course would have resulted in Frances being born addicted to the drug. Though the rumors were investigated, and Frances was removed from her home at 2 weeks old, the rumors were unsubstantiated.

Frances was 2 years old when her famous father committed suicide. To date, Frances has given four official interviews: Teen Vogue, I-D, ELLE, and Harper’s Bazaar.

When Frances turned 16, her birthday party was held in the ‘House of Blues’ on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. The band ‘Mindless Self Indulgence’ played a private show for the event, which was controversially themed ‘Suicide’ – supposedly representing her movement from childhood to adulthood. A competition was held for all the guests that looked ‘the most dead’. Francesextravagant party allegedly cost her mom, Courtney Love, over $323,000!
