Frances Bean Cobain was born to Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love and is their daughter. Her father, who was the lead singer for the band Nirvana, was discovered dead in his house in Seattle when she was just a year and a half old. Kurt Cobain was a member of the 27 Club because he passed away at the age of just 27, making him eligible for membership.


The daughter of Kurt Cobain would eventually have a successful career for herself in the fields of modeling, painting, and other fields.


Despite everything that has happened, she is still the legal heir to her father's estate.


The native of Los Angeles was born on August 18, 1992, during Kurt Cobain's most successful period with Nirvana.


The grunge singer didn't let the fact that he had a child prevent him from pursuing a successful career and he even involved his daughter in the history of the band.


The ultrasound picture of Kurt Cobain was featured on the cover of the Nirvana single "Lithium," which was released in 1992.


As a result of the misunderstanding that occurred between Vanity Fair and Courtney Love, the child protection services eventually had to get involved.


An article that was published in the magazine made the claim that Love admitted that she used heroin once she found out she was pregnant.


After a few more months had passed, Frances would pay her father a visit at the Exodus Recovery Center for the very final time.


Frances would be raised by Courtney and other members of the family after the death of her father, Kurt Cobain, who committed suicide at his home in Seattle on April 5, 1994.


Learning to Grow Up Without Kurt

Frances Bean, daughter of Kurt Cobain, would eventually split her time between the cities of Seattle and Los Angeles after enduring a difficult upbringing.


After her mother, Courtney Love, was arrested for drug charges in 2003, including an overdose on pills, she was placed under the care of her grandmother.


In the end, Love was successful in regaining custody of her daughter Frances in the year 2005.


By the year 2010, Cobain had inherited more than a third (37%) of the estate left by her late father. By the end of 2016, she was making approximately $95,496 per month from royalties.


At the time, it was believed that her net worth was somewhere in the neighborhood of $11.3 million, but the estate of her father was projected to be around $450 million in 2014.


On June 29, 2014, Cobain wed Isaiah Silva, a musician with the band The Eeries; however, the couple divorced in late 2017 after four years of marriage.


In addition, Drew Barrymore and Michael Stipe, lead singer of R.E.M., consider Frances to be their goddaughter.


Frances tried her hand at modeling, art, and other creative endeavors in an effort to break free of the rock star world into which she was born.


She made her modeling debut in 2006 for Elle UK while wearing an old brown cardigan and pajama bottoms that belonged to Kurt Cobain. Throughout her entire life, she would continue to model on occasion here and there.


Frances would also dabble in the art world, beginning her artistic career in 2010 with a series of works titled "Scumfuck." This collection of works was published by Frances under the alias "Fiddle Tim."


It wouldn't be until two years later that she would start going by her real name.


According to reports from 2010, Cobain declined the opportunity to play Alice in Tim Burton's adaptation of Alice in Wonderland.


In 2019, she made an appearance on RuPaul's Drag Race All-Stars season 4 as a special guest judge for one episode of the competition.



In recent years, Cobain has taken a greater interest in the life and legacy of her late father, as well as how it is being commemorated.


In 2018, Frances attended the opening of the exhibition titled "Growing up Kurt Cobain" at the Museum of Style Icons in Ireland. Frances was joined at the opening by Wendy O'Connor, Kurt's mother.


The HBO film Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck had Frances serving as an executive producer on the project.


Since the beginning of the pandemic, Frances has maintained a low profile in Los Angeles, where she currently resides.
