Kurt Cobain‘s teenage daughter wrested control of the late rocker’s image, likeness and publicity, after making a multi-million-dollar loan to her cash-strapped mom, Courtney Love, according to a published report.
Love relinquished her spot as acting manager of End of Music LLC — the business entity that generates cash from Cobain’s publicity rights — after she got a $2.75 million handout from daughter Frances Bean Cobain’s trust fund in 2010, according to court documents cited by The Fix website.
Until the loan is repaid, Love won’t profit at all from Cobain, and 19-year-old Frances Bean will run the show.
It is the latest odd twist in the sad family chronicle, marked by the Nirvana frontman’s suicide in 1994.
The erratic Love, plagued by substance abuse, lost legal custody of Frances Bean in 2009. The Hole front woman was also ousted from her role as an adviser to Frances Bean’s trust fund.
Reps for Love didn’t immediately return messages seeking comment.
