As our resident Courtney Love expert is still on Juggalo detail, this falls to me. First of all, Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of Kurt & Courtney, has turned 18, which is mortifying in a shit-I’m-getting-old sort of way. Also mortifying: this compendium of Courtney Love’s Tweets on the matter, an epic, semi-coherent, legitimately heartbreaking breakdown of their ongoing estrangement, complete with what percentage of In Utero Frances now gets and how much cash she’s entitled to a month. As pleas for reconciliation go this is not bound to be successful, which is a depressing coda to a story that is already pretty depressing. Enjoy.
