(Newser) – Courtney Love’s rants against daughter Frances Bean Cobain may not have been restricted to Facebook: New court documents seem to hint at domestic violence. Cobain’s paternal grandmother and aunt filed a motion to seal all records of the custody proceedings from the public—including “allegations of domestic violence,” E! reports. Love lost custody of 17-year-old Cobain on Dec. 11, and was then hit with a restraining order Dec. 16.
