Kurt’s girl got married.
Personal experience (and let’s face it, common sense) has led me to conclude that parents, and mothers in particular, don’t love it when their kids elope without telling them.
Despite her rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle, which includes an unrestrained attitude to drugs and questionable parenting methods, Courtney Love is likely no different from most mothers in this regard.
So I’m thinking she’ll be less than happy to learn that her 23-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain was married on the weekend to Isaiah Silva, 30, her boyfriend of five years.
Musician Silva and Cobain, a visual artist, among other things, were married before 13 to 15 guests after a four-year engagement reports E! News.
“Getting to spend the rest of my life loving my best friend makes me the luckiest woman in the world,” Cobain wrote on Facebook back in 2011.
Frances Bean Cobain had a tumultuous upbringing, including various periods away from her mother being cared for by her paternal grandmother and aunt on court orders.
Mother and daughter appeared to have reconciled recently when they appeared together at the premiere of Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, a film about the late, great Nirvana frontman which Cobain produced.
They’ve also posted loving messages to each other on social media. In a particularly poignant post, Love posted the below picture to Instagram with the caption, “Makes me feel so sad. Our baby is all grown up now. Jesus Kurt look at her face, what on earth were you thinking…”
“Courtney loves Isaiah, but was devastated to learn that Frances had gotten married without her knowing,” a source told E!.
“Courtney really likes Isaiah and is very happy for Frances. Courtney is sad she wasn’t at the wedding,” the source, possibly a robot, said.
To dispel any rumours of ill-feeling, Love seemed to address the wedding in an Instagram post of her with a rather attractive young man.
“If you think I’m sorry for being a no-show at any important events this week, think again. I was with @jamesnorley #candyface #worthflakingonanythingfor #heaven #worthit #slay #bae #cancelallmyappointments #donthate #stud #jealousmuch ? Bwahaa xc.”
