Courtney Love’s Daughter Says She Killed Her Cat, Dog

Katy Winn/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- We knew Courtney Love was a little crazy, but is she also a pet killer? A 2009 restraining order filed by Frances Bean Cobain against her rock star mother details how Love allegedly killed Frances’ cat by allowing it to get tangled in piles of fabric and killed her dog by letting it swallow Love’s medication.

The restraining order, obtained by The Fix, stipulates that Love keep away from Frances, Frances’ grandmother, Frances’ aunt, and Frances’s living dog, Uncle Fester. A representative for Love did not immediately respond to ABC News' requests for comment about the restraining order’s claims or whether it’s still in effect.

The Fix details Love’s other infractions, according to the now 19-year-old Frances. Frances describes Love’s relationship with an ex-boyfriend: “She took me in a taxi to his house in the middle of the night, and from outside the house, in her bare feet, she screamed at him, threw rocks at the house, and threatened to burn his house down. His children were inside the house, but that did not stop my mother.”

According to the restraining order, Frances says that Love “has taken drugs for as long as I can remember. She basically exists now on … Xanax, Adderall, Sonata and Abilify, sugar and cigarettes. She rarely eats … She often falls asleep in her bed while she is smoking, and I am constantly worried that she will start a fire (which she has done at least three times) that will threaten our lives.” She adds that Love once tried to jump off a balcony in her presence.

Courtney Love: ‘If Kurt Came Back Right Now I’d Have to Kill Him’

Miranda Shen/Fotos International/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- With all the celebrations going on for the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s Nevermind recently, it was only a matter of time before Hole frontwoman Courtney Love would weigh in on her late husband, Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain.

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Love exclaimed that she’s still extremely angry about Cobain’s 1994 suicide.

“If [Cobain] came back right now I’d have to kill him, for what he did to us. I’d f***ing kill him. I’d f*** him, and then I’d kill him,” said Love. “He tried to kill himself three times! He OD’d at least five times.”

Two years ago, their daughter Frances Bean emancipated herself from her mother, which is something that continues to be a source of frustration for Love.

“All I can feel is how much I love her,” notes Love. “I’d give anything to hear the sound of her heels walking down the hall past my bedroom.”

Love also claims that she’s owed more than $250 million in revenue from Nirvana, explaining that she and Cobain had money problems even when he was alive.

“We could never find our money!” said Love. “We had $135,000 in our bank account. They said that if he would go do Lollapalooza he would make $11 million....Do you think Kurt would have killed himself if he had known he had $54 million?”

Love’s interview will be featured in the November issue of Vanity Fair, available on newsstands in New York and Los Angeles on October 6 and nationally October 11.
