The late Kurt Cobain, the much loved frontman of Nirvana, is one of the world’s most iconic rock musicians.
But it’s his daughter Frances making headlines now, opening up about life with her famous dad’s name who died at the young age of 27 in 1994.
Frances, now 26, is the only child of Kurt and fellow rock star Courtney Love.
If you want to brush up on your Nirvana, here is the music video to “Heart Shaped Box.” Post continues after video.
The pair met in the early 90s and despite Cobain’s attempts to “live life like a bachelor for a few years,” love won out.
Just two years later they married in Hawaii. Cobain wore green pyjamas because he was “too lazy to put on a tux.”
By this point, they were already pregnant with Frances, who was named after Frances McKee the guitarist for the Scottish indie pop duo the Vaselines.
A sonogram of their soon to be baby was included in the artwork for Nirvana’s single “Lithium.”
Media scrutiny at the time focused on the idea that Frances might be born addicted to drugs at birth, thanks to her mother’s heroin addiction.
Her father was also addicted to heroin, and had been in rehab in the lead up to this death.
Kurt Cobain was found dead by suicide in his Seattle home on April 5, 1994.
Frances was just one year old.
In a recent podcast episode of RuPaul's What’s the Tee? she reveals she wasn’t told of her father’s suicide until she was five, with her mum sending her to therapy a year before so she could be “eased in” to the conversation.
When asked about her relationship with Courtney, Frances said: “When she is on a right and healthy path she is one of the most fulfilling, beautiful, intelligent, kind people that I have ever met.”
