Francis Bean's Dramatic Entrance

Francis Bean's Dramatic Entrance

Clown reminiscent make-up aside, Courtney Love seems to want to get her act together, but somehow her past keeps catching up with her. An upcoming biography of Nirvana details the crazy drama of the day that her daughter, Francis Bean, was born. It's disturbing, to say the least. Page Six reports:

In "Nirvana - The Biography," author Everett True describes how Cobain and Love both ended up at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. within days of each other in August 1992 - the grunge rocker checking in for a 60-day heroin detox stint and Love, a few days later, for complications arising from her pregnancy.

Two weeks into his stay, Love found herself about to go into labor. According to True: "Courtney - never one to miss an opportunity for drama - grabbed her intravenous drip stand at 4 in the morning, and wheeled it down the corridors to where Kurt was staying. 'You get out of out of this bed and come down now!' she screamed. 'You are not leaving me to do this by myself, [bleep] you!'

"Her husband followed her to the delivery room - weakened from his treatment, and hooked up to an IV stand himself - and passed out just moments before Frances was born." Then things got even weirder when, as Courtney related to True, "I'm having the baby, it's coming out, [Kurt's] puking, he's passing out and I'm holding his hand and rubbing his stomach while the baby's coming out."

Dear lord, how has Francis Bean ended up as grounded as she seems? Honestly, I would understand any level of instability from her, but she seems to be a relatively normal teenager. Well, we suppose someone's got to keep Courtney in check.

The profit from Nirvana should have been split 3 ways. I think courtney wanted ALL of it, and that is not really nice, considering it was a BAND. Maybe I am wrong but I think she won the battle too ,right? I think Kurt was sUPER depressed, and had he not tried to kill himself before this?

People LOOK at her face! It is beyond F'd up! This picture should hang in every plastic surgeon;'s office with the tagline ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO RISK THIS???? Honestly look at pics of her pre surgery.....her old face was SO much prettier, even with the old nose and even with some normal wrinkles she would look HUNDREDS time better than this. I feel sorry for her! Obviously she has lived and partied hard but this is tragic....Kurt would shoot himself all over again if he had to wake up next to that! Betty

God, she looks HORRIBLE!!! She's obviously swollen up from some more plastic surgery or something... Why would you leave the house before you've completely recovered... especially knowing people are going to take your picture? She must be a glutton for punishment.

What happened to Courtney? Was she mugged? She looks beaten up. Lesson here kids: Don't go out in public 24 hours after having plastic surgery. And her birth story is complete and utter horse manure. Like she wasn't doped up by massive epidurals, and other pain killers. If Kurt was detoxing, no way is the hospital going to risk getting their asses sued by: 1) A heavily pregnant woman waddling down the corridor with an IV stand. That screams potential trip, slip and fall, and lawsuit. 2) A detoxing junkie wandering the halls of said hospital, and hurting himself by walking into a wall. Nope, not happening. Courtney is lying, overly dramatic psychopath. She's going to wind up like Paula Yates. ~~ "A rumor without a leg to stand on will get around some other way." ~~

i think it's still a miracle that frances bean, does not have a drug prob or is hanging out with the wrong crowd! so either courtney is atleast doing one thing right or someone else is taking care of her.

Sometimes I get the impression that Courtney Love is proud of how chaotic her life was/is/will be.

Live today as if you'd die tomorrow. Learn today as if you'd live forever. That is one of the most f*cked up births I have ever heard of. Courtney looks like she was drunk and decided to put make-up on.

That whole birth situation reminds me of the birth scene in Blow, with Johnny Depp all geeked out on cocaine and shaking and collapsed during the peak of it all (he had a cocaine induced heart attack though). That was a scary/sad scene.

for some reason i will always root for courtney...francis is so grounded and normal cuz courtney fucked up so much that it makes her an amazing mom in some senses, that little girl has been thru a lot and she's smart to want nothing to do with it...just shows that courtney cant be that bad of a mom "stay far from timid, only make moves when your hearts in it and live the phrase sky's the limit."

Don't know why but I strongly dislike this woman. I always felt somehow she was involved in Kurt's death. On those pictures she looks like a clown! But her daughter is cute.

I AGREE 100% with you IMB. Poor Kurt!! I miss that music.. he had soul... meaning. Cortney Love is a piece of trash and I pray that she, FB, has GREAT grandparents.
