Mother and daughter attended the finals of American Idol
Frances Bean, the daughter of Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain has been placed under the temporary guardianship of her grandmother, according to court papers.
Control of the 17-year-old has been granted to the late Nirvana singer's mother Wendy O'Connor and his sister Kimberly Dawn Cobain.
Court documents do not mention Love or give a reason for the guardianship.
Love previously lost custody of Frances Bean in 2003 after a drug overdose but regained custody in 2005.
The court order, which runs until February, does not grant Cobain's mother and sister control over a trust established by the singer - who killed himself in 1994 - for his daughter.
In March, 44-year-old Love was sued by a fashion designer over messages she posted on the internet.
Dawn Simorangkir claimed Love made several "menacing and disturbing" statements about her on the singer's Twitter and MySpace pages.
