(Newser) – Kurt Cobain’s family has been trying to take custody of Frances Bean for years, his uncle tells TMZ, because Courtney Love “can barely take care of herself”—and is certainly “not fit to take care of Frances.” As of yesterday, Love not only lost custody of her daughter—she also lost the right to contact her, thanks to a judge’s temporary restraining order, which could become permanent Jan. 5.

The restraining order comes on the heels of Love’s tirade against her daughter on Facebook, but she apparently still isn’t ready to stop talking: Yesterday afternoon, Love posted that she’s not angry at Frances—“id just prefer she not become Jaimie L Spears,” who had a daughter at age 17, Us reports. Love later added, “i very much miss my daighter, i know she knows how miserable i am im despairing and so sad, so so sad.”
