She's still a teenager, and not only did she buy a mansion in the Hills, she also found a man in Los Angeles. Girl got game.a
Frances Bean Cobain, the 19 year-old daughter of Nirvana's Kurt Cobain and Hole singer Courtney Love, has revealed she's engaged. First, she changed her Facebook status to "engaged". For some reason, though, she removed it later. She then posted, "Getting to spend the rest of my life loving my best friend makes me the luckiest woman in the world."
I would agree, except that she has Courtney Love for a mother. Don't get me wrong, Courtney Love seems like she'd be a hell of a gal to party with, I just can't imagine her as a mom.
Bean and her fiancé, Isaiah Silva, recently moved in together in a big house in Hollywood.
"Yes," a source told In Touch Weekly. "She's engaged and they moved in together in a big house near Runyon Canyon."
The home was $1.8 million, which is a lot for a teenager. But considering that teenager is basically an heiress to the Nirvana fortune, it's a pretty good deal. When she turned 18, Frances inherited about 37% of the Kurt Cobain estate. The home is a four bedroom, three and a half bath estate in the Hollywood Hills. And to think, when I was 19, I was slumming it in a 205 sq. ft dorm room. At least I could take a bath and cook dinner at the same time.
Silva is in the Los Angeles-based band The Rambles. A lot of comparisons have been made between Silva and Cobain's late father, Kurt Cobain. Like Kurt, Silva has long shaggy hair, a half-ass beard, and often wears a striped cardigan during performances. Then again, I've just described half the bands in L.A.
Frances Bean was only 20 months old when her father committed suicide in April 1994. She and Silva have been dating a little over a year. In 2009, Frances moved out of her mom's home. She moved in with her late father's family. Love takes full responsibility for their failing mother-daughter relationship.
"All I can feel is how much I love her," Courtney said. "I'd give anything to hear the sound of her heels walking down the hall past my bedroom." The singer then confessed:
"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."
In 2009, it was reported that Love had been issued a restraining order prohibiting her from direct or indirect contact with her daughter. Frances' godfather is Michael Stipe, former front man for R.E.M. Her godmother is Drew Barrymore.
