Kurt Kobain likness/image no longer controlled by Courtney Love

His daughter, Francis Bean does. She's controlled it since late 2010 since entering into an agreement with Love. The arrangement may be surprising, but the circumstances behind it are not.

The documents show that Love agreed to step down as Acting Manager of End of Music LLC—the business entity responsible for generating cash from Cobain’s publicity rights—once she’d received a $2.75 million loan from Frances’ trust fund in 2010. The massive loan was transferred from Frances’ fund to EOM in Los Angeles, and then into an account held by Courtney’s then-lawyers, Pryor Cashman, in New York. Until Courtney pays it back, she won’t receive a dime from Kurt’s name, likeness or appearance from the deals formed by Frances and her advisers since December 2010..

Hiya Pumpkin. Can Mommy borrow 2.75 million dollars? Let's hope she doesn't repay the debt. I'm not sure we could handle another one of these moments.

Also, you should have bought this van.
