Courtney Love’ estrangement from daughter Frances Bean Cobain—now in the custody of her late dad Kurt Cobain’s family—is well documented. So it’s no wonder that Love looked so distraught while house hunting in NYC’s SoHo neighborhood yesterday (photo at left). And yet, no one was prepared for the very public airing of the rock star’s daughter-love that took place on Twitter on Monday. She laid bare her hopes and dreams for 17-year-old Frances, unedited and raw, for all of the internet to see.
She dispensed the kind of advice most moms and daughters share tenderly face-to-face. It’s heartbreaking and heartfelt—there’s no doubt that, whatever her actions, Love loves her daughter. In the tweets, Love also discusses to the end of her relationship with “e” (Ed Norton?). Excerpts below:

What’s your reaction? Did Love go to far, or is it all understandable for a mom with no other way to reach her daughter?
